Summer is still heating up in lively Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and Sands has four grand Myrtle Beach family resorts central to the area’s best fireworks shows. While summer does, unfortunately, have an expiration tag, Myrtle Beach’s fireworks shows are a year-round spectacle. Witness stunning seasonal and year-round fireworks at these five South Carolina staples: Broadway at the Beach, Barefoot Landing, Myrtle Beach Pelicans, Second Avenue Pier, and the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. Pack your lawn chairs, a blanket, and a pair of binoculars because the show is about to begin!
Broadway at the Beach
Broadway at the Beach is a family-friendly entertainment hub with live theater, premier shopping, hip restaurants, and the state’s best amusement park, WonderWorks. Families can (and do) spend an entire day at Broadway. You can also witness the area’s best fireworks show from March through December. Broadway hosts 23 events during the summer months as well as six during the “off-season;” please consult their event calendar for specific dates.
North Myrtle Beach also has a fantastic entertainment center at Barefoot Landing, five miles northeast of Sands Beach Club and Ocean Club. Both of these Myrtle Beach family resorts are next to the area’s famous hot spot: Ocean Annie’s Beach Bar. Barefoot Landing has 14 light shows in the summer and one each in September, November, and December. The fireworks fly high into the night sky above Lewis Pond and Joe’s Crab Shack.
Myrtle Beach Pelicans – Pelicans Ballpark
We’re proud to be the home of the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, the Class A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs and four-time Carolina League champions. Not only are the Pelicans full of future MLB ballplayers but Pelicans Ballpark has fantastic daily promotions, including fireworks on Sundays and Tuesdays. Come for the $2 tacos and tallboys on Tuesdays and stay for the exciting light show. Visit on a Sunday and enjoy free face-painting, balloon artists, and a pregame catch on the field.
Second Avenue Pier/Myrtle Beach Boardwalk
Every Wednesday night at 10 p.m. during peak season, Second Avenue Pier and Myrtle Beach Boardwalk host a firework show for the locals and tourists. Take a stroll down the Boardwalk or to the pier at sunset then sit back and witness a glorious display high above the ocean’s waves.
Myrtle Beach Family Resorts
Sands Resorts is home to Myrtle Beach’s best waterpark: the Sand Dunes Waterpark, entirely free to guests of all four Sands Resorts. Discover the Sands Family Funzone, a sizable arcade and pool area, at our beautiful Ocean Dunes Resort. Start planning your next family getaway by booking a stay at one of the best Myrtle Beach family resorts!
The 4th of July is arguably the busiest, most enjoyable and entertaining holiday in the United States. The weather is warm, the sun is shining, and the beach is near at Sands Resorts. The fun is endless, and life is more comfortable thanks to our inexpensive Myrtle Beach packages and excellent amenities. Enjoy free water park access at Sand Dunes Resort, play free golf with a stay at Sands Ocean Club or Sands Beach Club, and witness a distinct parade and breathtaking fireworks in Myrtle Beach.
Sand Dunes Waterpark
Sands Resorts Waterpark is free to guests at Sand Dunes Resort in beautiful Myrtle Beach. The oceanfront property has not only breathtaking Atlantic Ocean views, exclusive beach access, and insanely low prices. Also a secluded world-class water park with a relaxing lazy river, bubble pool, fast waterslides, an aquatic treehouse, and waterfall pools. Try prying yourself from the endless summer fun at Sands Resorts Waterpark.
Free Golf at Diamondback
One of the many perks at Sands Ocean Club or Sands Beach Club is the free golf. Sands Resort has partnered with Woodland Valley Country Club to bring guests a free round of golf at scenic Diamondback Golf Club. Diamondback, located in North Myrtle Beach, is challenging, quiet, and rustic–not the type of golf course you would expect in Coastal South Carolina. The course has large trees, pristine greens and bunkers, and short rough. Ocean Dunes Resort and Sand Dunes Resort also offer exclusive Myrtle Beach packages for golfers starting at $289 for three nights!
Catch one of South Carolina’s unique parades in the Myrtle Beach area. Boring, old street parades won’t cut it ever again after witnessing the Murrells Inlet Boat Parade and the 51st annual Pawleys Island Golf Cart Parade. The colorful and patriotic boat parade runs through wild Murrells Inlet where spectators can watch from the marsh walk. The golf cart parade has cars, trucks, and boat floats, but the little golf carts are always the main event. These two July 4th parades don’t run at the same so that you can catch them both!
Fireworks at Barefoot Landing
Before finishing the Fourth with fireworks, grab some tasty grub and a signature cocktail at Ocean Annie’s, located at Sands Ocean Club right on the beach. Barefoot Landing, Myrtle Beach’s premier shopping, dining, and entertainment hub, is home to the best fireworks show in South Carolina. The fireworks at Barefoot Landing fly high above the Intracoastal Waterway in the heart of the restaurant and carnival district. Your week with Sands Resorts will go down in history much like Independence Day.
