Less Is More Means More At Broadway

Posted in Broadway at the Beach, Featured Posts

The school bells of the 2017-2018 school year have rung, the Friday night lights are turning on at football fields and the tourist traffic exodus has started. For some that call Myrtle Beach home, it's the time of year when the ocean sands are a little less populated, traffic is a little less congested and we're enjoying a little less humidity. We've all heard the saying, "less is more" and at Broadway at the Beach, we've got some ways to enjoy more during the less!

Since the kids are busy roaming the halls with their friends, now is the time to grab your friends and roam around Broadway for some R&R and we're not talking about rest and relaxation, but retail and restaurant therapy! From jewelry, shoes and clothing, Broadway has you covered from head to toe! Thinking of adding some bling? The Mole Hole, Bijuju and A Silver Shack will have you donning beautiful accessories that will add a touch of sparkle to any style. For footwear, step into Gemini Boutique and Rack Room Shoes and try on a variety of comfortable and popular brands. When the temperatures start to fall, you will want to bundle up with the comforts of a new hoodie from Victoria's Secret or represent your favorite team's apparel from Sports Fanatics!

Now that kid's lunches are packed, you can enjoy a less stressed mid-day meal with your favorite lunch partners or enjoy a midafternoon snack all to yourself! Whether you're in the mood for seafood from Joe's Crab Shack or Landry's Seafood House, want something a little more extreme from Extreme Pizza, a delicious hamburger from Wahlburgers, Johnny Rockets or Hard Rock Café or you're in the mood for a great steak and brew from Liberty Brewery and Grill, the possibilities are endless at Broadway! And don't forget that sweet snack of ice cream from Cold Stone Creamery, Kilwins and Ben & Jerry's are always cool favorites!

So, when you're enjoying a little less heat and a little less traffic along the Grand Strand, we hope you're enjoying a little more shopping and little more dining at Broadway at the Beach!

August Is Like The Sunday Of Summer

Posted in Broadway at the Beach, Featured Posts

Summer Nights, Summer Vacation and Summer Love… no matter how it is spent, it's the season where our nights are long, our days are bright and our time is shared with those we love!

For us at Broadway, this year's summer highlight reel includes seeing our locals and out-of-towners experience the New Era At Broadway with the opening of Dave & Buster's, Paula Deen's Family Kitchen and Carolina Ale House, seeing the faces of the young and young at heart light up as they watch fireworks over Lake Broadway, our 4th of July festivities, and seeing friends enjoy a cold drink while strolling down The Avenue!

We all know, schools will soon open their doors, Mother Nature will soon blow in cooler air, and pool parties will soon be replaced with football parties and tailgating!

However, as with every fall, we will miss the carefree summer days and nights of June, July and August.

But there is still plenty of time to enjoy all the pleasures of summer including free nightly live entertainment, weekly fireworks and more at Broadway at the Beach! Grab the family and make those summer memories with the kids before they hit the halls for another school year because as the quote says, August is the Sunday of Summer.So before you fill your fall calendar with school and work responsibilities, before you put away the flip flops and beach chairs and before you frame the pictures taken in Myrle Beach, be sure you pencil in more summer fun at Broadway at the Beach!

Jingle July Bells & Christmas at the Beach

We are in the midst of our July days in Myrtle Beach, when the heat index and humidity are nearing the 100s, sand continues to fill our cars after days spent at the beach and ice cream seems to be the only treat that is able to cool us down. It's the summer sizzle and lackadaisical leisure of July that give us a tinge of tan, time spent with those we love and carefree nights around the BBQ. But soon, oh so very soon, we will be trading in those swimsuits for sweaters, those ice cream scoops for pumpkin and eggnog and free time in the sand for trips in the car or even plane rides to grandma's house!

We're counting down the days until Christmas at Broadway at the Beach, but it's not just December 25th that we have circled on our calendar, but also Saturday, December 2nd for our third annual A Very Broadway Christmas; a full day beginning with a parade and continuing with live entertainment, kids activities, our 23rd annual tree lighting ceremony all capped off with a fireworks extravaganza! Plans are already in the works to welcome in the holiday season with fun for the whole family, so stay tuned!

However, if you're anything like us, you need a dose of holiday cheer throughout the whole year. Lucky for us at Broadway at the Beach, we have Christmas at the Beach! This Christmas shop has everything you need to get you in the holiday spirit, even in the heat of summer. With not just one, but two floors to peruse through, one step into their doors and you'll be singing Christmas carols while selecting your newest ornament for this year's tree!

From tree toppers, stockings, ornaments, décor and more, you're sure to find your new holiday item to add to your collection. Of course, no decorating is complete without hanging your personalized Myrtle Beach ornament on the tree. Or, say "Thank You" with a personalized gift for that military service member, first responder, doctor or favorite teacher! Christmas at the Beach has plenty of profession themed ornaments to choose from to give that perfect gift to that special someone!

So if you're in need of some holiday cheer and a break from the humid heat, be sure to stop in and celebrate Christmas in July (or every month) at Christmas at the Beach all while counting down the days to the third annual A Very Broadway Christmas!

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays,

Okay, we're not there yet.

With Summer Heat & Dreams of December,

Cherry Garcia, Southern Praline Pecan & Oreo Overload.. Oh My! #NationalIceCreamDay

Let's face it, there are certain days on the calendar we don't look forward to. For some of us, that dreaded day is Tax Day or your annual dentist (or insert other medical professionals here) appointment; for others, it may be when the in-laws make their arrival or for students, it could be the first day back in the classroom. But for all those sometimes negative but necessary occasions, there are also days we count down to, the Christmases, the first day of summer and anniversaries but for us at Broadway at the Beach, it's Sunday, July 16th, otherwise known as National Ice Cream Day!

We have a plethora of ice cream pints and plenty of flavors to pick at our ice cream shops at Broadway! Our restaurants have plenty of cool delights too, but we're devoting this blog to the eateries that are devoted to the love of all things ice cream, Ben & Jerry's, Cold Stone Creamery and Kilwins!

Delicious Duo, Ben & Jerrys!

We have doubled the deliciousness of the world-famous brand with two locations at Broadway (Ben & Jerry's South, located in the New England Fishing Village near Starbucks and Ben & Jerry's North located in the Charleston Boardwalk near Paula Deen's Family Kitchen). Whether you're in the mood for some Cherry Garcia, orUrban Bourbon or need some Blondie Ambition, grab a cone and taste the euphoric concoctions made with wholesome, natural ingredients at Ben & Jerry's.

Cool Down With Cold Stone

If it's one of their perfectly crafted creations you crave or to mix it up with your own mix-in must haves, ice cream connoisseurs can find something that is perfect for their palate at Cold Stone Creamery! Located in Heroes Harbor across from Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, this nationally recognized shop features super-premium ice cream made fresh in the store every day! The ice creams are perfectly divine all by themselves, but we prefer to add in some deliciousness with a variety of mix-ins and watch as they blend it all together on a frozen granite stone! Did we mention they have ice cream cakes? They do!To order one, click here!

Keep It Classic With Kilwins

With their motto, "Sweet in every Sense since 1947", Kilwins has created decadent treats with the finest ingredients and exceptional confectionary service for 70 years with locations across the U.S. including right here at Broadway at the Beach in the Mediterranean Village! One taste of their rich, yet refreshing ice cream and you will be hooked! (P.S., get a sample of their Southern Praline Pecan. You can thank us later!) Whether you prefer your ice cream in a freshly made waffle cone or in a cup, you will always remember your first taste of Kilwins Ice Cream and you'll want to come back again and again!

There are plenty of places to celebrate National Ice Cream Day at Broadway at the Beach! So when you're enjoying the hot summer day of Sunday, July 16th, be sure to cool down with your favorite ice cream with us!

5.) The Great Indoors

Whether it's the depths of the deep blue sea or into the great unknown, you can escape the scorching temperatures with a trip to Ripley's Aquarium and WonderWorks. At Ripley's Aquarium, sharks, seahorses, stingrays, urchins and even mermaids will fascinate from the bottom of the ocean right in front of your eyes! At WonderWorks, you can stay in out of the heat and stand up against hurricane force winds, control a NASA spacecraft and even lay on a bed of 3,500 nails!

The summer isn't always about the rising temperatures, but also about the afternoon downpours. What better way for you and your friends to escape Mother Nature's woes than at Backstage Escape Games!

4.) Cool Down at Dave & Buster's

Looking for food, fun and a cool spot to hang without having to hurry through the heat while walking from place to place? Dave & Buster's offers all the food, fun and games all under one roof! From their tempting appetizers and ice cold drinks to a giant game of Pacman and Mario Cart, you and your whole crew can beat the heat while trying to beat each other in a new family, friendly atmosphere!

3.) Lighten Up & Eat Up

When it comes to noshing during the summer months, Broadway at the Beach offers several options for not-so heavy meals that are perfect for fueling up as you're trying to cool down on a summer day or night!

2.) Stay Hydrated & Out of the Heat

It's safe to say we all know that staying hydrated is the best way to keep from melting during the summer months, and when it comes to sipping on something sweet, Broadway is the place you can't beat! Whether you're in the mood for craft brews from Liberty Brewery & Grill or American Tap House or something carefully crafted from the top shelf at Good Time Charley's, Senor Frogs or Wet Willie's, you can stay hydrated all summer (and all year) long while enjoying the cool company of your best friends and family!
