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,

Broadway at the Beach

Happy Valentine’s Day: 10 Things We Love About Broadway

Roses are Red. Violets are Blue.

You love Broadway at the Beach & We love you too!

Okay, so our poem producing skills could use some work; but on this day of love and affection, we're counting down the reasons why we love Broadway at the Beach!

10.) Home is where the heart is… in Myrtle Beach.

Whether you're a native of its sandy shores or a transplant from across the country or an annual visitor on vacation; Myrtle Beach is a place where memories are made in the sand, sun and with a hint of summer that can be enjoyed all year round. From the northern end of Little River to the southern end of Georgetown, Broadway at the Beach sits in the middle of the Grand Strand in the heart of Myrtle Beach and there's no other place we'd rather be!

9.) We love to light up the sky!

Regardless if you're a kid, a kid at heart or you've got a kid on top of your shoulders, there's just something special about taking in a fireworks show with the ones you love. Broadway at the Beach celebrates holidays and summer nights with our annual Fireworks Extravaganzas, weather permitting of course!

8.) For the love of snacks!

This will be the first of two appearances of food on our list of love because, well... we're foodies! When we're out and about at Broadway and not ready to head into one of the many restaurants, we love to satisfy our sweet and savory tooth cravings with a variety of snacks offered at every corner of Broadway at the Beach. In the summer, the flavorful fragrance of freshly popped popcorn from a kiosk fills the air and cold snow cones cool us down in the heat. All year round, the aroma of freshly made pralines from River Street Sweets and fine fudge from The Fudgery and Kilwins persuades us to purchase or at least sample every visit!

7.) Sweet souvenirs of your southern escape

Taking a piece of Broadway at the Beach with you is always a must-do when you visit! It's the Broadway at the Beach magnet on your fridge that reminds you of the tasty time spent walking around with a waffle cone of Ben & Jerry's or Cold Stone Creamery Ice Cream. It's the Myrtle Beach hoodie from Vintage House that you bundle yourself up with in the cold. It's the pictures taken with the mermaids of Ripley's Aquarium that are framed forever in your hallway. We love that our souvenirs serve as a glimpse back to the annual vacation or weekends walking, shopping and eating at Broadway during those hectic every day schedules.

6.) Events for Everyone

Just when you think Broadway at the Beach couldn't get any better with our abundance of shops, restaurants and attractions, Broadway's Calendar of Events continues to fill up with events we love! From the annual KidzTime Festival to A Very Broadway Christmas, to walks to remember to car shows to food festivals and more; Broadway at the Beach is the home of special events, entertainers and festivals all throughout the year!

5.) We love to Dance!

Grab your dancing shoes and step on the dance floor! Whether you're dancing the night away to your favorite tunes at Club Oz, Senor Frog or you're testing your Salsa skills at Hard Rock Café, or you are line dancing with the wait staff at Johnny Rockets, Broadway offers plenty of options for you to get your boogie on!

4.) Our Legendary Loves of Hollywood

The music lover in all of us can take a trip down memory lane when we have a meal among authentic Hollywood memorabilia of Hard Rock Café and see the tribute artist stars of yesteryear and chart toppers of today take the stage at Legends in Concert. Broadway isn't just a place for retro revelers, we love catching the latest flicks and blockbusters from a seat in Broadway 17 and the Big D!

3.) Our love for Broadway is as deep as the ocean and out of this world!

Not only can we shop, eat and be entertained at Broadway; but we love how we can have an out of this world experience at Broadway and beyond without leaving Celebrity Circle! From seeing sharks to being able to touch sting rays at Ripley's Aquarium to challenging yourself to stand up against hurricane force winds and piloting a fighter jet at WonderWorks, our capabilities are endless. Let's not forget that we can putt into another world while experiencing Dragon's Lair Fantasy Golf and listening to the tales of Sir Alfred the dragon!

2.) Endless love for shopping

You know our love to shop was near the top of our list of love! From designer eyewear at Sunglass Hut to the exquisite Pandora Jewelry line at The Mole Hole and Alex & Ani of Gemini Boutique to fashion finds of Bijuju and holistic essentials of Earthbound Trading Co., shoppers can shop 'til they drop all day long at Broadway at the Beach. Since it's Valentine's Day, don't forget, our retail shops are open until 6pm for you late love procrastinators!

1.) Eat, drink & be in love with Broadway at the Beach

You could probably guess our love of food was going to claim the #1 spot of our top 10 loves of Broadway! But it's more than just the sitting down and eating; it's the classic All-American burgers and milkshakes of Johnny Rockets before watching the 4th of July fireworks. It's the drinking of carefully crafted beer of American Tap House and Liberty Brewery & Grill while cheering on our favorite team in the playoffs. It's teaching our young ones how to crack their first crab leg at Joe's Crab Shack and Landry's Seafood. It's the happy hour sushi specials at King Kong Sushi with a group of coworkers to discuss the latest news (or gossip) at the office. It's the coastal tastes of California at Extreme Pizza and the Boston flare of Wahlburgers. It's the hibachi chef at Yamato's Japanese Grill that makes us laugh while watching our spouse try to catch a shrimp with their mouth. It's the first sip of a sweet Margarita while listening to the sounds of Jimmy Buffet at Margaritavillle that can take you back to summer during the winter months or cools us down in the midst of the summer heat.

The list goes on and so does our love of all things Broadway at the Beach. However, our list wouldn't be complete without our most important love of our all, our visitors. From seeing your memories being made with young ones enjoying the summer at Pavilion Park; to young and old loves walking hand in hand across the Center Bridge; to a group celebrating the upcoming nuptials with a Bachelorette and/or Bachelor party at Crocodile Rocks; to little leaguers celebrating a win in Myrtle Beach at their favorite burger place; to seeing your #BroadwayAtTheBeach pictures through social media, you make Broadway at the Beach what it is, the place where memories last forever and this Valentine's Day that's what we are celebrating with love!
