The Grand Strand comes alive for July 4 in big ways.
Myrtle Beach celebrates much of the summer with displays. And Independence Day is the Super Bowl of events. What’s more American than a beach trip, fun in the sun, and fireworks at night? You have plenty of choices when you hit the coast for the holiday.
Here are a few ideas to add to your vacation plans.
Our nation’s birthday has a rich history all its own.
America won its independence with a little help from France. The French also sent us the Statue of Liberty as a symbol of freedom. The landmark’s official name is “Liberty Enlightening the World.”
The Continental Congress approved the document that day, but you know congress. Most signatories didn’t put their John Hancock on it until August.
Their day is July 1. They might do things a little differently, but they’re all in favor of a long weekend for celebrating, too.
There are so many displays in Myrtle Beach for this festive day. At least four in town, in fact. All around town, from balconies and ballfields and beach blankets, you have many spots to see them all.
Give props to the Armed Forces with a military flyover of the entire South Carolina coast!
Head to the pier for the incredible festivities. From 6-10 p.m. enjoy music, entertainment, and more at the Surfside Beach Fourth of July Celebration.
Visitors and locals flock to the marsh for this event. Boats from all over the area strut their stuff, decked out in patriotic themes. The Murrells Inlet Boat Parade sets off from Garden City Point. It travels through the inlet to Morse Park Landing. Head out before 9 p.m. for a good spot.
Speaking of the MarshWalk … it’ll be open for the holiday, too. Indulge in tasty fare made famous by this collection of waterside restaurants. At the MarshWalk Fourth of July Fireworks, drink specials, and entertainment. They know how to party!
