Dreaming of a warm Christmas this year? Escape to The Caribbean Resort & Villas in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, to experience the ideal winter climate with a forecast full of fun events. Whether you’re planning a trip with your closest friends or need fresh ideas for a family vacation, you’re sure to find accommodations that match your style at The Caribbean.

With four different buildings offering a wide range of room types, we can suit most any needs you have for your holiday getaway. The Chelsea Condos give everyone room to spread out and have their own space. If you’re seeking an intimate beachfront experience with a vintage touch, you’ll love staying at The Jamaican Inn. It has the feel of a bygone era, but with all the modern features you need. The Dominican takes oceanfront suites to a whole new level, with top-to-bottom renovations to make your stay feel incredible. The Cayman Tower is another grand option for those looking to relax in style this holiday season.

Once you book the perfect place to stay, it’s time to start filling up your itinerary with fun holiday activities. Broadway at the Beach is always a popular destination, but starting on December 2nd, this entertainment hot spot transforms into a winter wonderland. The Christmas atmosphere is ushered in with the Ripley’s® Attractions Myrtle Beach Holiday Parade, followed by musical performances and kids’ activities during the afternoon. At 6 p.m. sharp, a special holiday tradition takes place – the 23rd annual tree lighting, followed by fireworks to light up the night sky.

With over 100 specialty shops and boutiques at Broadway, you’re sure to find the perfect gift for dear old Dad, even if he already seems to have everything. After you’re worn out from all that shopping, refuel at one the amazing restaurants at Broadway, like the American Tap House or the Hard Rock Cafe. And it probably won’t be very cold outside, but you should stay for a drink or two at Malibu’s Surf Bar or Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville.

Looking for another way to get some Broadway at the beach? Throughout the holidays, Myrtle Beach plays host to an all-star lineup of performances like The Carolina Opry’s Christmas Show of the South. Over at the Alabama Theatre, you can catch The South’s Grandest Christmas Show. The entire family will be singing along with the talented performers as they belt out Christmas classics and contemporary favorites against a backdrop of festive scenery.

A must-see for any holiday trip to Myrtle Beach is the Nights of a Thousand Candles at Brookgreen Gardens. Located about 20 miles south of The Caribbean, Brookgreen Gardens is a National Historical Landmark garden museum that also houses an impressive sculpture collection. Each year during the Christmas season, more than 5,500 candles and 100,000-plus twinkling white lights give the gardens a heavenly glow. As you take in this incredible sight, you can sip on warm cider as the sounds of handbell choirs, carolers and an array of talented musicians create a special holiday ambiance.        

If you’re making a list of vacation destinations and checking it twice, make sure to put Myrtle Beach at the top. This coastal community offers an amazing lineup of family-friendly events, as well as a thriving night life. No matter what kind of holiday trip to Myrtle Beach you’re envisioning, The Caribbean Resort & Villas can help bring it to life.
