Top Five Reasons to Visit the Grand Strand During the Holidays

 

 

 

Our Top Five Reasons to Visit Myrtle Beach for the Holidays

 

One thing those of us who work in hospitality along the Grand Strand  love is getting to know repeat visitors. We get to see families return year after year, get to watch kids grow up … and Christmas is no exception! Many families make an annual holiday tradition out of their trip to beaches of South Carolina (specifically, Pawleys Island). Here are the reasons they tell us they prefer to visit the beach in the winter:

 

1. Forget about crowds.
Those noisy summer crowds aren’t a concern when you come to visit Pawleys Island in the winter.

 

2. The weather.
You won’t find the almost tropical heat southern summers are known for when you visit the Grand Strand in the fall and winter, but you also won’t get as much rain. In fact, November is much drier than August here in Pawleys Island, and December’s even less wet! So as long as you’re not afraid to dress in layers, you can enjoy clear skies and long walks on the beach.

 

3. We’ve got great Christmas shows.
Carolina Opry and Alabama Theatre in particular offer up annual Christmas shows that people come back for year after year after year. Something’s always a little different, but you can see your favorite performers mature and grow in their careers. And with the amazing holiday decoration displays at these theaters, you will absolutely feel the Christmas spirit move you!

 

4. Less family stress.
Look, we know you love that aunt or grandma or sister-in-law who also happens to drive you crazy every year at Christmas. But you can still send her holiday cheer via a Skype call on Christmas morning from the comfort of your quiet and serene Pawleys Island vacation rental.

 

5. Awesome shopping.
If you go on vacation along the Grand Strand for the holidays, you can get your own shopping done, whether you’re shopping for others or for yourselves. Shoppers cite the Tanger Outlets on Hwy. 501 and Hwy. 17 as well as the trendy Market Common. And if you’re looking for some Christmas cheer in your shopping, be sure to check out the annual Myrtle Beach Dickens Christmas Show Nov. 14-17, 2013.
