While the water may be a little too cold for some people right now, it is the perfect time to search for seashells and shark teeth in the sandy coastline. We have a few tricks up our sleeves for finding shark teeth and seashells that will be helpful in your next adventure to The Beach this spring. First, our easy tricks to find shark teeth.

It’s not Christmas at the beach without a visit to a live performance at one of our award-winning theaters! 2020 has been extra hard on live theaters everywhere, and the Myrtle Beach area was no exception.

Here are a few of our favorite shows come the holiday season: The Christmas Show of the South The…

An annual holiday photo with Santa Claus is a tradition our family loves. And while photos with Santa are bound to look fairly different in 2020, local businesses have gotten creative to make it happen safely for visitors and the big man in red. You may see Santa behind plexiglass, in a mask, or positioned a little further from you than normal… but we’re looking at it as an opportunity to remember a different sort of year. Below is a round-up of just some of the places you’ll find Santa making the rounds: Grand 14 Theater at The Market Common…

The Market Common is a holiday hub this December, and we are loving it! The popular shopping/dining/entertainment area is hosting events all month long, including complimentary photos with Santa, The Polar Bus Express, happy hours with Santa, lunches, and bowling with Santa, and more. But one of our favorite activities this time of year is their horse-drawn ‘sleigh’ ride through The Market Common. Every Sunday in December, you can take a break from all of your shopping and enjoy complimentary carriage rides from 3 to 6 p.m. Pick up and drop off…

A Christmas parade is a fun way to energize the holiday spirit, and there are a couple coming up this weekend we plan on checking out! One of the things I love about a parade is that it gets my family outdoors together, which is more of a perk this year than ever before. So we’ll pack our Santa hats, Christmas-themed face coverings and plan on social distancing this coming Saturday and Sunday for two different parades. On Saturday, December 12, 2020, from 2 to 5 p.m., the town of Surfside Beach hosts their annual Christmas Parade. It’s one of…

I grew up in the North Myrtle Beach area, and yet it took me 31 years before I learned about Ingram Dunes—that is a well-kept secret! The kids and I went for a drive yesterday (a favorite pandemic pastime) despite the afternoon showers, and we ended up coming across Ingram Dunes. I have been meaning to figure out where they were exactly located since last fall, and yesterday ended up being a good day to do that. These magnificent dunes were formed over 80,000 years ago and comprise one of the most natural green spaces on the beach side of…
