Holiday season is right around the corner and it’s never to early to start planning. If you’re looking for a relaxing getaway this November, make plans to celebrate Thanksgiving in Myrtle Beach! Known as a family vacation destination, Myrtle Beach is the perfect place to visit for a holiday centered around food and family.
The morning of Thanksgiving, head over to The Market Common for the Myrtle Beach Turkey Trot. This 5k winds all around the outskirts of The Market Common and the old Air Force Race. There is even a Tot Trot for the kids! This event is not only fun for the whole family, but it’s also a great way to build up an appetite before your big Thanksgiving feast.
The toughest decision of the holiday weekend might be where to dine for your Thanksgiving dinner. Not only can you find places serving up turkey and stuffing, but there are plenty of local restaurants to choose from that offer everything from Sushi and Seafood to Steakhouses and Italian. If you’re looking to stay in and prepare a traditional dinner, most of the rooms at Brittain Resorts come with fully equipped kitchens. There’s ample counter space to prep and serve food, so you don’t even have to leave the room to enjoy a delicious family Thanksgiving feast. And the amazing oceanfront views will add a nice touch to your home cooked meal!
After getting your fill of all the fixings, head outdoors to burn off those extra calories! Temperatures around the Grand Strand are mild, so the weather is ideal to play a round of golf or get a head start on your Christmas list at Broadway at the Beach, Barefoot Landing or Tanger Outlets. After you browse the stores, go explore the coastal wildlife at Huntington Beach State Park or challenge the family to a nature scavenger hunt at Myrtle Beach State Park. Or simply grab a cup of coffee and take a walk on the beach while you and the kids search for seashells.
During your weekend away, plan an evening to take the family to a festive Christmas show at one of the theatres. For the classic holiday programs visit the Alabama Theatre or Carolina Opry and enjoy singing along to holiday songs, watching toy soldiers dance and come to life and snowfall in a winter wonderland. For a unique holiday show experience, check out the stunning acrobatics of the pirates at Pirates Voyage Christmas Show.
No matter where in Myrtle Beach you and your family enjoy their Thanksgiving dinner or how you choose to spend your holiday weekend away, there are plenty of activities the whole family will enjoy when you book your oceanfront Thanksgiving vacation with Brittain Resorts & Hotels!
