4 Festive Events in Myrtle Beach this December



Long gone are the days when we had ample natural light well into the evening hours and could take a late afternoon stroll on the beach as the sun was setting. Now, we’re welcoming frosty mornings, and maybe even a light dusting of snow on the beach in the upcoming winter season! Whether you call Myrtle Beach home, or you’re looking to celebrate the holidays a la coastal style, there’s plenty of cheer-packed activities happening around town!
