Longer Days Arrive March 8. It’s Daylight Saving Time!

Can't wait for Spring and more hours of daylight? They're right around the corner.

After the winter that most of America has been enduring, the coming of Spring is a real cause for celebration.

The first sign of Spring is Daylight Saving Time. It arrives Sunday, March 8 when we move our clocks ahead. Suddenly, the sun that set around 6:15 p.m. each night is setting at 7:15 p.m., and we're reaping one more hour of daylight.

It's the most wonderful time of the year for those who love the outdoors! The days are not only longer, but growing warmer. There's more time to take a stroll around Lake Broadway. The outdoor decks at restaurants begin filling with diners lounging in the sun. And families come to take on the challenge of miniature golf on the mountain top at Dragon's Lair or the ropes course at Soar & Explore.

At Broadway at the Beach, we're already celebrating Spring. We expanded our hours, starting March 2, opening daily 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. thru May 21. During Easter Weekend (April 3-5), we'll keep our doors open even longer, until 10 p.m.

Come enjoy the longer days, the warm sun and all the fun of Broadway at the Beach in Spring.

How To Have An A-Mazing Good Time With Mirrors And Lasers

Rarely — but sometimes — the weather turns chillier than normal in Myrtle Beach. That's when parents look for indoor entertainment to get the kids out of the house and give them a chance to blow off some steam.

And when that time comes, there's just one choice. Sure, there are several exciting, intriguing and fun indoor attractions in Myrtle Beach. But there is just one that is also chaotic and mind-bending.

No other place serves up the adrenaline rush found inside the Backstage Mirror Maze. Five seconds in and your family will discover how easy it is to become dazed, dazzled, confused and lost.

Imagine snaking through 2,000 square feet of continuous circles, regularly bumping into dead ends, and finding surprises each time a corner is turned. The confusion's made worse by bright rainbow-colored lights that fill up the void, and the kids are soon tricked into going the wrong direction by their own reflection!

After you and the kids have worked your way through that chaos, a laser challenge awaits.

Fans of bank heist movies love the fantasy and challenge of "The Vault" laser maze. It's a time-machine crime spree torn from the headlines of March 11, 1933 when the New York mafia's Lucky Luciano and his gang attempted to rip off the Times Square Bank.

The kids can help the cops chase down the bad guys as they climb through an off-Broadway theater passageway leading into the bank. There's dodging and weaving among the lasers as the chase goes through a maze of backstage corridors, props, trap doors and turns. With the clock ticking and suspense building, it's a real challenge to artfully navigate through a web of security beams inside the vault.

This is the one place in town that will bend your mind and get your heart racing.

How To Make This Valentine’s Day Memorable

February 14 is Valentine's Day, and this year it falls on a Saturday. Why not celebrate the entire day with a little star-gazing, followed by a romantic dinner and a show?

An intriguing first stop on any memory-making tour is the Hollywood Wax Museum. Where else can you gaze at an extraordinary galaxy of stars indoors?

Be sure to get lots of snapshots of you and your sweetheart with other famous Tinsel-town lovebirds. It's the best opportunity in Myrtle Beach to snuggle up close to your favorite romantic A-lister!

As you walk among the famous figures, recall some of the sentimental films that starred your favorite actors. You're sure to be in a romantic mood after recounting amorous story lines as you walk hand in hand.

When it's time for dinner, head right across the street to Broadway at the Beach where you'll find more than 20 different restaurants. Check out Landry's for a quiet seafood dinner or Amici's for some saucy Italian fare. From Angus sirloin and ribs at Liberty Brewery & Grill to a Japanese steakhouse, to a free glass of champagne with dinner at Good Time Charley's or Rooster's Restaurant & Bar, to the special "Splash of Love" evening at Ripley's Aquarium, there's lots to choose from. No matter what kind of food or atmosphere your sweetheart likes, you'll find it at Broadway.

Follow up dinner for two with a live show at Legends In Concert or The Palace. Or take in the latest flick at the Carmike 17.

And that's how you make a Valentine's Day memorable.
