Eat, Drink & Be Merry At Broadway at the Beach

Que Mariah Carey's All I want for Christmas holiday anthem, it's the holiday season and we are celebrating the most wonderful time of the year at Broadway at the Beach! Even after we've lit our tree and decked our halls (or actually, the bridges over Lake Broadway), there's more holiday themed events to enjoy at our favorite Grand Strand destination.

Whether it's a Breakfast with Santa and Mrs. Claus at Hard Rock Café, or Lunch with the Grinch at Dave & Buster's or early morning dining with the mermaids of Ripley's Aquarium, you and your family can dine with the friends and foes of the North Pole on different December dates. For families, you can always sit down to a hearty holiday feast at Paula Deen's Family Kitchen with a selection of southern favorites and don't forget that seasonal favorite, pumpkin ooey gooey pumpkin cake! For the couple out on the town for a romantic holiday date, a candlelit dinner of Cajun coastal cuisine can be found at Landry's Seafood, pair that with a glass of wine with dessert or stop by one of our wineries and pick up a bottle for when you're cuddled up with Netflix and chill on those chilly evenings!

In the mood for music… holiday music?

Going on now through December 30th, Legends in Concert is featuring their Ultimate Christmas Spectacular with live music tributes Elvis (Travis Powell), Blues Brothers (Kenny Barett & Dan Meisner), Karen Carpenter (Sally Olson), Alan Jackson (Larry Turner) and Martina McBride (Stacey Whitton Summers). It's a show that's a little bit country and whole lot of holiday Rock n' Roll!

At Ripley's Aquarium, you will feel like you are walking into an indoor and under the sea Christmas village with their Festival of Trees! With 50 trees uniquely decorated with one for each state in the U.S., the aquarium glistens and glows this time of year!

Next to Ripley's Aquarium in Heroes Harbor, you can stop by for a photo op at our new Santa's House. Take a selfie or snap a shot with friends and family and make a memory to post on your favorite social media account! Be sure to use #AVeryBroadwayChristmas when posting and you may see your pictures shared on our Facebook and Instagram!

There's plenty of ways to enjoy the countdown to Christmas and the holiday season at Broadway and we haven't even talked about our favorite holiday pastime yet, shopping! Help Santa fill up the area under the tree this year and shop Broadway for this season's latest trends and unique gifts that will please the grinchiest of your guests!

So whether it's with your favorite holiday characters or a cozy evening with family and loved ones or a hot holiday date with your significant other, you can eat, drink and be merrily entertained all December long with us at Broadway!

Our Silver Anniversary: Join Us For The 25th Annual Tree Lighting Celebration At Broadway at the Beach

When it comes to anniversary gifts, there's the custom that each year has it's own theme when it comes to gift giving. For example, the 1st anniversary is paper, the 5th anniversary is wood, the 10th is tin or aluminum and so on. So there's a silver lining to this year's annual tree lighting celebration at Broadway at the Beach as this is our 25th Annual event! Hence, it's our silver anniversary!

This year's 25th Annual Tree Lighting Celebration will kick off the holiday season in Myrtle Beach as we light our tree on Friday, November 22nd! And we're not talking about a simple countdown to the lighting of a simple tree, we go all out with an entertaining show featuring local and regional talents with musical guests, dancers and more. Plus, you may even see a few guests all the way from the North Pole… and we aren't just talking about this year's emcee, WPDE's Chief Meteorologist Ed Piotrowski and Good Morning Carolina's anchor Crystal Costa! It's the Grand Strand's kickoff to Christmas!

And the tree? Located in Center Court, between It'Sugar and Build-A-Bear Workshop, the 46 feet tall tree with 14,500 RGB LED Lights will dazzle you and will also feature a music and light show occurring every 30 minutes throughout the holiday season from 4pm – 9pm daily!

Plus, on tree lighting night, stick around and enjoy a Fireworks Extravaganza over Lake Broadway at 8pm!

So join us as we light up Broadway in more ways than one for this year's 25th Annual Tree Lighting Celebration! And PS, no need to worry about any 25th anniversary gifts for us under the tree, instead you can make a donation all season long through our Toys for Tots partnership with the Marine Corps Reserve and bring a new unwrapped toy and drop in the boxes located at Guest Services! The season shines brighter at Broadway at the Beach!
