Guide to Christmas In Myrtle Beach
Spending Christmas in Myrtle Beach is a holiday tradition for some, while others have recently tried it out for the first time. Spending this holiday at an oceanfront resort, going out to eat for Christmas dinner and opening presents with the ocean waves crashing ashore just outside may be the ideal holiday for you!
No Cooking Needed – Christmas Dinner
If you would rather leave the cooking to the professionals on Christmas Day then you are in luck as there are plenty of Myrtle Beach Christmas dinner options. If your family is craving a steak dinner, then centrally located New York Prime may be the perfect choice for you. Serving dinner from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. both on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, you are sure to have a tasty meal you will not forget. Carolina Roadhouse, a popular steak and seafood dinner option, will be open on Christmas Eve from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Christmas Day from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. If you are looking for the not so traditional feast, you can enjoy tacos and fajitas at Burro Loco. They will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Christmas Eve and from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Christmas Day. This is just a sampling of the delicious restaurant options available on Christmas in Myrtle Beach.
Last-Minute Gift Shopping
If you haven’t finished your Christmas shopping then Myrtle Beach is the perfect place to do so! Many stores are running specials leading up to the holidays and many have introduced extended holiday hours. We have plenty of Christmas shopping options that are just a short drive from hotel BLUE including Tanger Outlet (on Hwy 501), The Market Common, Broadway at the Beach and Coastal Grand Mall. Whether you are looking for a big home goods store or if you want to search for unique and personalized gifts at a local boutique, Myrtle Beach has it all.
Santa, Christmas Trees and Holiday Spirit!
Myrtle Beach comes alive with Christmas shows, decorations and everything you may need to get in the Christmas spirit. On select dates you can see Santa at The Market Common or take a free carriage ride throughout the shopping and dining district. Or, you can catch Palace Theatre’s Christmas Wonderland show complete with ice skaters, Santa, elves and so much more on Tuesdays through Saturdays through December 19. Also located nearby is Ripley’s Aquarium featuring their Festival of Trees which showcases more than 75 individually decorated trees, holiday entertainment and more! For some oceanfront fun, head over to Holidays on the Boardwalk (at the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk) and enjoy their twinkling lights and special events on select dates.

Oceanside Accommodations, Water Amenities and More!
Who else in your family can say their Christmas consisted of waking up to the sunrise over the ocean, taking restful ride down the indoor lazy river and enjoying some eggnog on a beach chair? If you stay at hotel BLUE for Christmas you can have your own truly unique experience that you will remember for the rest of your life.
