It’s the Myrtle Beach area’s most iconic landmark, and many have taken a spin on it since it first opened in 2011.


Yet if you’ve only been on the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel during the day, you’re only getting half of the experience.


At night, the 187-foot SkyWheel comes alive it glows with vibrant colors that can be seen for miles down Ocean Boulevard in the heart of Myrtle Beach.


These lights can be solid green for St. Patrick’s Day, a warm glow of red for Valentine’s Day, a patriotic display of red, white and blue for the Fourth of July or any other color combination imaginable.


And it is breathtaking to get a nighttime view of the Grand Strand from that high up amongst the clouds.


If you’re looking for a nighttime summer activity this evening, enjoy a ride on the SkyWheel. It is well worth it!
