Winter on The Grand Strand

There are four things to do to stay warm during winter wonderland trips to the Grand Stand and Myrtle Beach.


There are many things to do to stay warm while you're visiting Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand during the winter. But still with the year-round balmy climate in South Carolina's City of Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand you could find many opportunities to stay warm while you still venture out to take those many walks down the Beach coastline before breakfast when you all in you winter beach gear. There are four things to do to stay warm during winter wonderland trips to the Grand Stand and Myrtle Beach. Those four things include visits to the Grand Strand Vendor Mall, Movies at the Broadway at the Beach venue, dinner at my favorite restaurant Captain Benjamin's Calabash Seafood buffett, and a performance at Pirates Voyage Dinner and Show. The People of Laurens County and City of Clinton; make sure you visit the Myrtle Beach area this winter season. 

The Grand Strand Vendor Mall at 3826 South Kings Highway at Myrtle Beach is a warm shopping mecca oasis during a cold Myrtle Beach day. Formerly the Myrtle Beach Flea market; it is a Grand Strand institution. You could buy many, various souvenirs all at reasonable prices. They also at this venue sell books and jewelry at great deals. This is a place my family and I have visited thru the years, and it is well worth the visit as a shoppers paradise. 

The AMC Classic Broadway 16 movie theater at the Broadway at the Beach venue would surely keep you warm and comfortable during your winter visit and  extravaganza at Myrtle Beach. It is located at 1325 Celebrity Circle at the City of Myrtle Beach. You could eat Hot butter popcorn while you look at current Hollywood Blockbuster movies shows in a warm movie theater. And visiting many other venues that are at Broadway at the Beach could keep you warm during a cold South Carolina winter day. Those other venues include Hard Rock Cafe, Paula Deen Store, Crabby Jack's General store, and Coastal Carolina winery. 

You third thing you could do to stay warm during a Myrtle Beach winter wonderland vacation is dine at my most favorite restaurant in Myrtle Beach. Captain Benjamin's Calabash Seafood Buffett is located at 401 South Kings Highway in the City of Myrtle Beach. They have some of the best Calabash seafood in all of the Grand Strand. The restaurant is located on the main drag of Myrtle Beach, and it is a short trip from your hotel. The many entrees that could keep you warm during a South Carolina night and evening on the town includes Fried and baked fish, fried shrimp and shellfish, shrimp fried rice, vegetables, and desserts. At  this fine  establishment they have wonderful amenities and a wonderful view. It is truly worth your visit as one of the best places to dine at in Myrtle Beach. 

Pirates Voyage Dinner and Show at 8907 North Kings Highway is also truly an experience in itself. Water-works Blackbeard themed Pirate performances and stunts make up this theater experience. They also offer a four course meal that could keep you warm and sound during this winter wonderland experience. This is a Actress Dolly Parton sponsored Myrtle Beach venue; and it is an dinner theater experience of the Grand strand like no other. 

Visiting Myrtle Beach during the wintertime is an extremely Beautiful experience. South Carolina and Grand Strand winters tend to be comfortable, but my Family has fallen in love with our winter vacations to the Grand Strand. And we look forward to more balmy visits to Myrtle Beach during wintertimes down the road. And these Four listed activities you could also do with your own family at Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand that would make your winter visit much more memorable.
