Party like its 1995… Broadway at the Beach Turns 25

Posted in Broadway at the Beach, Featured Posts

1995… the year of mainstream media, pop icons and blockbuster hits. Seinfeld and ER reigned supreme on prime time television and Braveheart, Apollo 13 and Toy Story dominated the silver screen. And who can forget Seal's "Kiss from a Rose" sweeping the Grammys?

For us, 1995 will always be remembered as the year Broadway at the Beach opened its doors and 25 years later, it still stands as the place where millions choose to spend time making memories and creating smiles each and every year! Through expansions and renovations, Broadway at the Beach may not look exactly like it did a quarter a century ago, but we're dawning on a New Era at Broadway where the best is yet to come!

We're not blowing out any candles just yet, however, we are giving away prizes every week to celebrate with you! The best part about it (besides the prizes, of course) is you can share your memories for a chance to win.

Be sure to check out our #25YearsOfSmiles giveaways each week on our Facebook and Instagram for your chance to win!

So as we flashback to our first year, be sure to share your flashbacks from your first, second and all your visits to Broadway at the Beach and join us as we celebrate Broadway's silver anniversary!

Fish & Fowl Facts of Lake Broadway

Posted in Broadway at the Beach, Featured Posts

This blog won't have us diving 10,000 leagues under the sea, but we can go anywhere between three feet and fifteen feet deep looking at the variety of fish and fowl that now call Lake Broadway home!

Before we look at the inhabitants of the lake, how did the lake come to be?

The manmade Lake Broadway was completed in spring of 1995 and took more than eight months to complete and spans 100 feet across and one mile in diameter.

Now to the fish & Fowl Facts…

Since its beginning, several species of fish fill the lake located in the center of Broadway at the Beach including Israeli Carp, White Amur, Bream, Catfish and crawfish. Yes, we said crawfish!

Above the water, ducks, cranes, seagulls, egrets and other birds have made Lake Broadway their favorite hangout spot!

And let's just say, when you're feeding the fish from feeders, the birds are eager to catch a treat as well!

So the next time you're walking over the bridges of Broadway, be sure to look out for the swimmers below or see the wings flying in for their daily visit and homestead in Lake Broadway at Broadway at the Beach!

Time To Relax, Rest & Rejuvenate at Broadway at the Beach

Posted in Broadway at the Beach, Featured Posts

The holidays have come and gone and although it is often called the most wonderful time of the year, for many of us, it's also the most hectic time of year. So now that the New Year is here and you've settled back into your post-holiday regular routine, now is the perfect time to rest, relax and rejuvenate and at Broadway at the Beach, we have the perfect places to do all three!

Rest:

It's safe to say the key to good rest is a good night of sleep!

And what better way is there to drift away to dreamland than to crawl in bed with the soft bamboo creations of Cariloha.

From bedding, pillows and ultra-soft clothing, the sandman won't have any problems bringing you some dreams when you snuggle up into something very soft and smooth.

Relax:

Whether it was the visiting in-laws or the long lines returning those not so great holiday gifts that had your last weeks of 2019 in a festive fury, you can always unWINE at Broadway with not one, but two wineries, Boardwalk Winery and Coastal Carolina Winery.

A bottle from Coastal Carolina Winery located in Heroes Harbor can sweetly enhance a moment of relaxation either cuddled up with a good book by yourself or just hanging out with your guy or gal pals. At Boardwalk Winery located in Mediterranean Village, you can drink the reds and whites as well as try their specialty fruit wines. Their motto of a "vacation in a bottle" will have you sipping on sunshine or moonlight at your own relaxing convenience.

Rejuvenate:

Now that you've rested and are relaxed, let's talk rejuvenation! With two locations at Broadway, Splash Fresh Bath & Body will have you feeling refreshed with their unique blend of products including bath bombs, shower gels, makeup and luxurious body lotions.


Whether you lather up before the day or at the end of the day, or both, Splash will have you feeling good, smelling good and looking good as you step out into 2020!

So the next time you need a little R&R or actually, R&R&R, check out our favorite ways to renew ourselves at Broadway at the Beach!
