How to Start a New Family Tradition: Meet up and Celebrate in Myrtle Beach!


There are some holiday traditions that families simply wouldn’t mess with. On Thanksgiving, turkey must be on the menu. Christmas stockings are a must. But many families are embracing opportunities to create fresh family traditions that have unique meaning. One appealing option: Destination holidays, especially in Myrtle Beach!

The benefits are huge: When you meet your family at the beach rather than descending on Grandma’s house, you don’t have to worry deciding whose turn it is to host. You also don’t have to worry about crowding, because you can all get your own rooms, with as much or as little space as each family would prefer. No one person is overwhelmed with cooking and cleaning responsibilities, since the staff at your Myrtle Beach resort takes care of keeping your accommodations in ship-shape.

They key is picking a destination that has something for everyone. And it’s why a place like Myrtle Beach is such an ideal choice for a holiday getaway tradition: There are activities and attractions that appeal to every age. From the holiday shows at Carolina Opry to the year-round child-pleasing fun at Ripley’s Aquarium and Broadway at the Beach, you’re sure to find activities that each member of the family can pick and choose among.

And because Myrtle Beach is such a popular winter getaway destination, many area restaurants stay open and serve up special meals for holidays.
