Boo - It's Halloween at The Beach!

It's the time of year with a little chill in the air, ghost stories are swirling around, and we all enjoy a little more candy than usual. During the month of October, there is something to do practically every day to celebrate the spooky holiday. In fact, Conway, SC, one of the 14 coastal communities in the Myrtle Beach Area, declared the town to be now called "Halloween, SC" for the entire month! Come celebrate Halloween with us at The Beach. It will be fun, spooky and extra sweet. Check out these events! 

Ripley's Haunted Adventure 

In this haunted mansion, zombies and other scary creatures lurk behind each corner to 'welcome' you to the Haunted Adventure. You will be given a laser gun to help take down the zombies and defend yourself as you make your way through the house. Open every Friday and Saturday throughout October from 12:00 pm to 9:00 pm for ages 8 years and up.

Each Wednesday in October, travel back in time to hear the haunted tales from a well known storyteller and author at Hopsewee Plantation in Georgetown.
