Things To Do In Myrtle Beach On Thanksgiving Weekend

Thanksgiving weekend is one of the best times of the year to enjoy Myrtle Beach. With our warm sun and uncrowded beaches, you can stroll along the sand undisturbed or stake out your own special fishing spot.

It's especially easy to get in the holiday spirit at Broadway at the Beach. Take in a Christmas show at Legends In Concert or The Palace Theatre, or stop and see our 52- foot-tall Christmas tree decorated with 141,000 lights.

On Turkey Day, why slave over a hot stove? There are plenty of great places in Myrtle Beach to find a delicious meal on Thanksgiving Day. For example, several Broadway at the Beach restaurants will be serving up everything from traditional Thanksgiving fare to great steaks, awesome burgers and scrumptious seafood. After you feast at restaurants like Hard Rock Cafe, Landry's Seafood or Good Time Charley's, there's no clean up. So, you'll have plenty of time to stroll among the shops, play at attractions, and even enjoy some nightlife.

When the sun comes up on Black Friday, you can just roll over and catch a few more hours sleep. Skip the craziness at the mall and enjoy holiday bargain shopping that's a breeze. After a leisurely mid-morning breakfast, head over to Broadway at the Beach and enjoy a stroll around the lake. There's sunshine, fresh air and unique gifts at bargain prices. Shops including Tervis, A Silver Shack and Fresh Produce are offering 25% off. Bijuju, MA Fashion and Sports Fanatics are among those offering 40 to 50% off. And a few shops — like Sunglass Hut and Rack Room Shoes — are taking off as much as 60%.

This Thanksgiving weekend you don't have to resign yourself to joining frenzied shoppers on an exhausting pilgrimage for holiday bargains. Come enjoy the beach, a show, and the Christmas lights.

If you know where to look you can find gifts that are unique, beautiful and unexpected at prices worth celebrating.

Make Your Holidays Special. Celebrate With The Jersey Nights And The Rat Pack

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Our thoughts are turning to mistletoe, holly, baking cookies and buying gifts. Why not get in the holiday spirit this year with a live Christmas show. Myrtle Beach theaters are known for putting on wonderful Christmas variety shows and this year is no exception.

Two theaters at Broadway at the Beach have developed tribute shows that will transport you to simpler times when holidays weren't filled with online shopping and party invitations weren't conveyed through texts.

Wouldn't it be fun to step back in time to the early 1960s when Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. led a band of rowdy, charming and talented rogues known as "The Rat Pack?" They seemed to be everywhere — on stage, TV and in movies. And most Americans couldn't get enough of them.

Legends In Concert has assembled a stellar group of tribute artists to present the first musical Christmas tribute to The Rat Pack ever to appear on stage. Christmas With the Rat Pack (with special guest Marilyn Monroe) takes the audience back to those "ring-a-ding-ding" times when the actors and singers in the pack were the coolest, man. Get in the spirit of the season with holiday classics such as The Christmas Song and Boogie Woogie Santa Claus. Rat Pack standards are also on the playlist, and audiences can get in on the act with sing-a-longs, ad libs, cut ups, and quips. And, you won't want to miss a special appearance by a Rat Pack mascot, Marilyn Monroe.

The show runs through December 20, takes a break from December 22 through December 25, then runs from December 26 through December 31 with a special New Year's Eve version of the show on the 31.

While audiences are swooning to smooth and classy classics at Legends In Concert, The Palace Theatre will be rocking out with the Jersey Nights Christmas Special. Jersey Nights features the hit songs of the Four Seasons, taking everyone on a nostalgic tour of rock'n'roll during a decade of big changes in popular music.

This Christmas spectacular melds rock classics like "Sherry" and "Walk Like A Man" together with holiday classics like "Jingle Bells" and "White Christmas." Sensational dance numbers, first class musical arrangements, perfect harmonies, and authentic costumes combine with decorations and falling snow to put you in a holiday mood.

The Jersey Nights Christmas Special runs through December 20.

There's no better way to launch your holiday season that by taking in a musical show

Searching For Myrtle Beach’s Best Nachos On National Nachos Day

Do you love nachos? This versatile food is one of the most popular in Myrtle Beach — and throughout the entire U.S.

For nacho purists, there's no better way to experience this comfort food than to snack on tasty corn tortilla sections topped with jalapeño peppers that are cradled in a blanket of melted cheese. After all, that's the way nachos first emerged some 70 years ago from a Mexican restaurant kitchen just over the Texas border.

Over the years, it's become popular to pile nachos high with favorite foods, transforming the snack food into a full meal. Toppings like ground beef, lettuce and guacamole are popular just about everywhere, while chefs in some sections of the country have put regional foods atop the chips. From crispy bacon to tater tots, pulled pork to pineapple, alligator chili to duck confit, and lime-infused crème fraiche to brie sauce, regional versions of nachos have become a staple at restaurants ranging from brew pubs to those serving upscale Continental cuisine.

At Broadway at the Beach, nacho dishes are served at almost every eatery. While many of our visitors enjoy traditional nachos featuring basics like queso and jalapeños, others seek out bolder versions like Volcano Nachos (at Margaritaville) and the Mayan Pyramid (at Carlos'n Charlie's).

National Nachos Day is Thursday, November 6 this year. What kind of nachos will you be diving into?

Runner Or Not, You Won’t Want To Miss This Colorful Event

The "Happiest 5k on the Planet" will be held November 1 at Broadway at the Beach. The Color Run™ is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness and individuality. Runners and spectators are armed with 100% colored cornstarch that's enthusiastically showered upon runners at several points during the event. Most participants start out dressed in white and hope to finish the 5k with all the colors of the rainbow decorating their bodies.

Unlike other 5ks, no one keeps time during The Color Run, so if you're looking for a place to reach your personal best, you'll have to bring your own stopwatch.

Registered participants receive a custom "The Color Run" race shirt and over-the-shoulder bag, tattoo, bag of color, race bib, Color Runner finisher sweat band, and sponsor goodies.

Since 2011, The Color Run has been circling the globe, bringing colorful fun and fitness to cityscapes. In 2013, there were 170 events in 30-plus countries.

But there's only one Color Run in Myrtle Beach, and it's this Saturday at 8:00 a.m. at Broadway at the Beach. Come join the fun!
