As the cold is settling into the northern states and the midwest is already dealing with snowfall it’s just the beginning of a long winter head. Before long the snowstorms will arrive and everyone will be out shoveling and salting walks and driveways. Now that’s an image that sends shivers through anyone!
But it doesn’t have to be that way! For those who can get away, consider spending a few months of your winter enjoying the warmer climate of South Carolina while staying in a Garden City Beach winter rental offering all the comforts of home. You’ll be surprised how much shorter and more tolerable a northern winter seems when you spend part of it in a Garden City Beach winter rental.
The holidays are upon us and with that comes many local events and festivities to enjoy. Get in the holiday spirit with the Annual Murrells Inlet Community Christmas Parade beginning at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 2. Come enjoy the fun as the parade starts at Wilcox Avenue (Booty's) and marches down Business 17 with marching bands, beauty queens, dogs, cycles, and lots and lots of goodies for the kids! Immediately following the parade, meet at Morse Landing Park (next to Hot Fish Club) for the Tree Lighting Ceremony. Santa Claus will visit with the children at the park. The Christmas tree will be lit and the Boy Scouts will light a bonfire to take the nip out of the air. Christmas music will entertain the crowd at the park. Don't miss out.
Don’t miss the 2012 Nights of a Thousand Candles at Brookgreen Gardens this year. It is a tradition for locals and visitors alike. Each December thousands of candles and sparkling lights set the gardens aglow. Top off your magical evening with live entertainment or visit to one of the indoor exhibits. Inlet Affairs will offer a dinner buffet in a heated tent for an extra fee. Nights of a Thousand Candles will be held from 3-10 p.m. December 7-8, 14-15, and 20-22 at Brookgreen Gardens.
