Hard to believe we will say goodbye to 2018! But the new year seems to help us reflect and ponder on the holidays, vacations, celebrations and milestones we have reached throughout the year. It also gives us new goals, hopes and parts of our lives to look forward to in the new year! 2019 will be a great one and Paradise Resort wants to make sure you celebrate in style.
Here in Myrtle Beach, there are several options for you to celebrate, and we wanted to make it easy on you to decide. One option is to enjoy your oceanfront room and order in as you celebrate in the quiet comfort of Paradise Resort. But, if you are looking to get out, here is a list of options for you and your family to ring in the new year!
Brookgreen Gardens — New Year’s Eve Stroll Under the Lights: Wherever you may be headed for your after-hours festivities, you can start your evening off with a candlelit stroll through the beauty of Brookgreen Gardens. Thousands of hand-lit candles and holiday lights will illuminate the grounds of these popular Murrells Inlet sculpture gardens from 6 to 9 p.m., all while music sets the mood. Learn more at brookgreen.org.
Market Common — A Southern Times Square: At this shopping/dining/entertainment hot spot in Myrtle Beach, New York City’s famous Times Square New Year’s Eve celebration gets a decidedly Southern makeover. The fun activities offered at past editions of this New Year’s party have included a live-stream of the Times Square festivities on a jumbo screen, a mirror-ball drop at midnight and a fireworks show starting just after to welcome the new year with a bang. You can bring the little ones, too, as kids’ entertainment such as bounce houses and face painters will be provided. Live music and a selection of Market Common food and drink vendors will also keep the atmosphere festive all night. For more information, visit marketcommonmb.com.
Murrells Inlet MarshWalk — New Year’s Eve on the MarshWalk: For those looking to head for the Southern Strand to ring in the new year, this half-mile wooden boardwalk bordering a saltwater estuary in historic Murrells Inlet will have plenty of fun on tap. Each of the MarshWalk’s eight restaurants will offer great dinner and drink specials as live music emanates from all stages, and a fireworks show at midnight will welcome in 2019. Visit marshwalk.com to learn more.
More Fireworks Shows: At North Myrtle Beach hot spot Barefoot Landing and top Myrtle Beach attraction Broadway at the Beach, free fireworks shows will light the Carolina skies this New Year’s Eve. At Barefoot Landing, the New Year’s Eve Fireworks Spectacular will get rolling at 7 p.m., while Broadway at the Beach will light the fuse on its Fireworks Extravaganza at 8 p.m.
