Well, it’s November, and while the weather is still beautiful here in Myrtle Beach, the holiday spirit is definitely in the air. From beautiful holiday theatre shows to top-notch holiday shopping, Myrtle Beach is an awesome place to visit during the holidays.

Here are our top 5 reasons to visit Myrtle Beach during the holidays this year:

Holiday Shows

The Grand Strand is home to several award-winning holiday shows, and while you’re visiting Myrtle Beach for the holidays, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to catch a show or two. Holiday shows include: The Christmas Show of the South at The Carolina Opry, The South’s Grandest Christmas Show at The Alabama Theatre, and the Legends in Concert Holiday Show! Each show has singing, dancing, spectacular costumes, and a lot of holiday cheer for the whole family to enjoy.

Holiday Shopping

While you’re in town, you may as well take advantage of all the great shopping centers in Myrtle Beach! Here are some great places where you can find holiday gifts for everyone on your list: Coastal Grand Mall, Myrtle Beach Mall, Inlet Square Mall, Pawleys Island Hammock Shops, Broadway at the Beach, Barefoot Landing, The Market Common, Inlet Square Mall, Myrtle Beach Mall, Tanger Outlets (2 locations), and Downtown Myrtle Beach.

Holiday Events

In addition to fun holiday shows, the Myrtle Beach area also hosts holiday events each year. One of the most popular holiday events is the Dickens Christmas Show and Festival. This annual event will take you back in time to a Victorian Holiday Marketplace featuring tons of vendors, music, and more. This multi-day event is a must for families visiting during the holidays.


Sure, Myrtle Beach may get snow once in a blue moon, but you’ll never find yourself snowed-in for the holidays here. Escape from the intensely cold climates of other parts of the country, and make your way to Myrtle Beach to celebrate the holidays in a warm and cozy atmosphere. Most of the time, you may even find yourself wearing a t-shirt outside on Thanksgiving Day! The average temperature in Myrtle Beach for the month of November is 69º, perfect for outdoor activities such as walking on the beach! The weather only drops down to an average of 60º, which is still warm enough to enjoy the outdoors here along the Grand Strand.
