Creating Holiday Traditions in Myrtle Beach

Most families have long-standing traditions when it comes to the holidays. They have a routine of when to begin decorating the house with festive decorations, putting up a tree, hanging ornaments, gathering with friends, and shopping for gifts for loved ones. But what if you started a new tradition this year by spending the holidays in Myrtle Beach? Here are some helpful tips on how to get started creating your new holiday tradition:

Reserve A Place to Stay

When searching for a place to stay, Lachicotte has a home for every size group and budget. There are plenty of options to choose from including various size homes, 2-bedroom to 9-bedroom, to different locations, creek front to oceanfront views. There’s ample room in these homes for everyone to sleep, spread out, and make memories of dining together, playing board games, and relaxing around a cozy fire. You can even book ahead of time for the next year and keep the tradition of having the same vacation home to spend the holidays in year after year.


Mix Up the Menu

You and the family have most likely gotten your fill of the typical holiday meal of turkey, ham, and all the fixings at Thanksgiving. Why not mix up the menu, skip the cooking and start a new tradition of ordering fresh seafood to celebrate the holiday? There will be no need for anyone to spend hours baking in the kitchen or washing stacks of dishes and endless silverware. Everyone can order what they want, spend more time laughing and catching up around the table, and the clean-up will be a breeze.

See a Show

The Beach is known for its holiday shows, so make sure to add one to your tradition. The Carolina Opry is called “The Christmas Show of the South” and treats the crowd with an unforgettable holiday experience with dancing, singing, and a theatre decorated so elaborately decorated it’s like an attraction itself. The Alabama Theatre puts on “The South’s Grandest Christmas Show” that’s full of entertainment and includes singing, acrobatics, dancing, and comedy. If you’re in the spirit for dinner and a show, go on an epic journey with Captain Scrooge to find the meaning of Christmas and watch in awe as the Christmas toys come to life, pirates perform jaw-dropping acrobatics above the water, and the show is completed with a Nativity scene with live animals and an angel with a special message for all.


Shop for Gifts

From Broadway at the Beach and The Market Common to Barefoot Landing and Pawleys Island Hammock Shops, there are plenty of shops to find unique presents for the loved ones on your holiday list. With the tradition you’re creating, you can switch up how you do gifts. You can all set a monetary limit on the amount you spend or the types of gifts you give to one another. There can be themes to the gifts, or regulations like one-store limits or no gift cards allowed. The group of you can choose to spread out the gift-giving with different people receiving gifts each night, play a game like “White Elephant ” or choose to give them all at the same time. That’s the fun of making new traditions, there are no rules to it.

Plan Festive Activities

Myrtle Beach comes alive with festive attractions and activities during the winter. There are Christmas trees decorated to represent every state at Ripley’s Aquarium, lights and candles glowing throughout the sculpture gardens of Brookgreen Gardens, and a Christmas light show synced to music and Santa’s Village to visit at the Great Christmas Light Show in North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex.

The holiday season is quickly approaching. Now is the time to book your holiday getaway with Lachicotte and start creating your new holiday traditions at the beach!
