Open daily, local owners and operators, Chris and Jeanne Feldman look forward to welcoming you to their sweet shop. Kilwins is located between Sparkles and Myrtle Beach Harley Davidson.

Sweet Molly's Creamery

This "sweet" shop opened the original location at Barefoot Landing in 2004, and since that time the Tobin's have opened several other restaurants and eateries locally throughout the years, including the second location of Sweet Molly's Creamery, right here at Broadway at the Beach. Named for their precious rescue pup, Molly, Sweet Molly's Creamery is the go to spot for fresh made daily, ice cream, frozen yogurt and sorbet. The options are endless, with everything from basic ice cream, to ice cream with mix-in's, sundaes, shakes and smoothies. Some of this summer's favorites include; Beyond Banana with fresh banana, caramel and walnuts, One Cool Cannoli with cheesecake with chocolate chips, waffle cone pieces and cinnamon, and Berries & Cream with vanilla yogurt, strawberry topping, strawberries and raspberries. Oh, and did we mention, a portion of Sweet Molly's Creamery revenues are donated to local animal rescue groups, so please adopt, don't shop. Sweet Molly's Creamery, open daily and located across from Klig's Kites.

Ben & Jerry's

With two locations at Broadway at the Beach, there is no shortage of Cherry Garcia, Chunky Monkey or the many other euphoric flavors Ben & Jerry's offers. Locally owned and operated, both shops are open daily and not only offer cups, cones, sundaes and shakes, but they can also cater your next party, delivering the ice cream right to your event! Ben & Jerry's North is located near Paula Deen's Family Kitchen and Ben & Jerry's South is located near The Grumpy Monk.

Cold Stone Creamery

Made fresh in store, Cold Stone Creamery features made to order ice cream mixing your choice of candy, cakes, fruits or nuts on a frozen granite stone for the ultimate ice cream experience. Choose from their signature creations, sundaes or create your own. And did someone say "ice cream cakes?" Yeah, they have those too, for a birthday, special occasion, holiday or just because! Locally owned and operated, Cold Stone Creamery is open daily and located across from Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville.

IScream Candy

One of Broadway at the Beach's newest ice cream spots is IScream Candy. The name says it all, ice cream and candy, a deliciously tasty combination. From super shakes to rolled ice cream and premium ice cream, this ice cream kitchen is sure to please the palette with sweet creations and a whole lotta love! Recently opened in May, IScream Candy is located across from Wet Willie's.

Tipsy Scoop

Ok, this one is for adults 21 and older only, sorry kids! Located inside of It'Sugar, Tipsy Scoop features liquor-infused ice cream flavors inspired by classic and contemporary cocktails. This modern, boozy twist on ice cream combines the best of both worlds by infusing traditional ice cream flavors with different liquors creating creamy, tipsy and delicious treats!

So, whether it's in a dish or in a cone, I think we can all agree ice cream is the perfect tasty summertime (or anytime) treat! Share some with your family and friends at one or more of these flavorful ice cream shops and stops to celebrate National Ice Cream Day at Broadway at the Beach!

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!
