Come See Our New Shops, Eateries & Attractions At Broadway!

Broadway at the Beach Sunset

There's a reason that Broadway at the Beach is South Carolina's number one tourist attraction.
Every year, we search the country for new and exciting experiences to add to our line-up of unique shops, outstanding restaurants and great attractions. And, while we're lining up new additions, those who've already made Broadway their home keep sprucing up in preparation for the summer season.

Right now, some of our guests' favorites are renovating and remodeling their stores for the upcoming season. If you're a fan of Klig's Kites, Senor Frogs, Crocodile Rocks, Pepper Palace, Tiki Jim's, The Fudgery, Build-A-Bear Workshop, or Fat Tuesday, you'll want to check out their new looks when you come to Broadway.

This year, those long-time favorites are being joined by some brand new shops, eateries and attractions. Some are already open, and some are still under construction.

Here's a look at the variety of unique taste treats and fun experiences coming to Broadway this year:

NBC Nightly News called it "the gourmet snack a lot of people are chewing on." If you love beef jerky, or just want to know why jerky is the hottest snack craze crisscrossing the nation, head to the Beef Jerky Store in Heroes Harbor near Margaritaville. You can sample some of the 200 varieties of premium beef jerky offered at the store, and your tastebuds are guaranteed to find something that thrills them. The store also has other snacks including flavored popcorn, chocolates, dried vegetables and candies.

When a store's sign says "sweet in every sense since 1947," it's a sure bet you'll find something special inside. Originating in the great state of Michigan, the very first Kilwin's in the Myrtle Beach area is making Broadway at the Beach its coastal Carolina home. Renowned for its great customer service and even greater confections, Kilwin's candy-making methods were originated by Don Kilwin. Ever since, Kilwin's has promised that "each and every piece is touched by workers who care and take pride in making a high quality product just for you." So next time you're at Broadway, head over to the Caribbean Village and enjoy Kilwin's down-home confections and ice cream made fresh from original recipes.

Over at Broadway's New England Fishing Village, Master's Edition Fine Art Gallery will be offering "the very best in limited edition works of art" from nationally-known artists. You'll be captivated by the distinctive impressionistic style of Robert Finale; awed by the grandeur of paintings by Wildlife artist (and winner of the prestigious Illinois State Duck Stamp competition) Abraham Hunter; and inspired by the works of Mark Keathley, who creates outdoor scenes that encourage contemplation and tranquility.

Three other intriguing stores have also joined the Broadway lineup. The new Hollywood Heroes & Villains is the place for movie, TV or comic book lovers in search of memorabilia, t-shirts and more. The fun at Pick A Pearl starts when you choose an oyster and keep the pearl inside, then use the pearl to make your own unique piece of jewelry. For cellular phone accessories, small electronic accessories or portable DVD players, there's the new Tech Stop. You can find the locations of all of these on our property map.

The nightlife scene is changing at Broadway. This year a unique new club called Oz has opened. Its ever-changing interior transforms to a different locale and theme each night, providing endless possibilities, enhanced by amazing sound, lighting, and visual effects.

While our newest offerings are ready and waiting for you, we also have news about more to come. New shops, MyCup, Flashy Feet and Christmas At The Beach are all scheduled to open later this spring.
We're also adding a new attraction. The folks at Backstage Mirror Maze are developing Backstage Escape Games, an escape room concept featuring various scenarios where guests can work in teams to solve clues, crack codes and conquer challenges. It will be located next door to Backstage Mirror Maze, and is set to open late spring/early summer.

Our guests are always on the hunt for new taste experiences. This year, a new eaterie, Extreme Pizza, will be opening its first Myrtle Beach location at Broadway in late spring/early summer. Be sure to check out their innovative pizza combinations that are "extreme, not mainstream" and their subs, calzones, fresh salads, and desserts.

For over 20 years, Broadway at the Beach has been the center of fun for Myrtle Beach. And, we keep working hard to bring you fresh and new experiences as you return to enjoy your long-time favorites.

Hope to see you soon!

Spring Is Sprung – And Broadway Is Ready!

Posted in Broadway at the Beach, Featured Posts

Flowering trees and azalea bushes. Soft breezes swaying giant palmetto trees. Warm sunshine and the salty scent of the ocean on the air.

It's spring in Myrtle Beach, and we've said goodbye to the chill of winter.

Spring is the time that most of us enthusiastically return to the outdoors, once again excited to enjoy strolling by festive shops, feeding the fish in Lake Broadway, or just relaxing as we watch the kids enjoy a turn on the carousel. It's also a great time to play some miniature golf at Dragon's Lair or take on the challenge of the ropes course at Soar & Explore!

Before the picnic season really gets underway, spring lets us bask in the pleasure of a meal served outdoors on a restaurant deck, or comfortably savor a snack while people-watching from a cozy bench.

At Broadway at the Beach, we welcome the longer days that spring provides and look forward to reconnecting with the many visitors who make Broadway a regular part fo their vacation plans. Thanks to you, we're the #1 tourist attraction in Myrtle Beach, and we'll keep working to delight you with new and exciting things each year you return.

Last year, we debuted The Paula Deen Store, where fans of America's favorite Southern cook can find Paula Deen cookware and cookbooks, home accessories, recipe mixes, gifts and more. In a few weeks, we'll be introducing our 2016 additions to Broadway and telling you about the plans for the year ahead.

We hope you'll plan on visiting Broadway this spring, as the longer days provide even more time to make magical memories here. Through May 26, our shops and attractions will be staying open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Come experience the fun of Broadway at the Beach in spring.

Each kid will get an Easter treat and rendezvous with the rabbit in the pyramid for a buffet that has everything from scrambled eggs to biscuits with sausage gravy to French toast sticks.
