In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Christmas Tree Takeover: Ripley’s Aquarium Festival of Trees

It's one of the largest Christmas tree displays in South.

No matter what time of year you visit Ripley’s Aquarium in Myrtle Beach, it’s always a great adventure.  Around the Holidays, it gets even more magical with Ripley’s Aquarium Festival of Trees.  Each year, it gets bigger and better; and this year, you’ll see over 100 trees decked out and on display. That means you have the chance to experience one of the largest Christmas tree displays in the South.

How could one place decorate over 100 unique trees?  Well for starters, they have a Christmas tree decorated for each state and territory in the United States.   Each Christmas tree has unique items on it representing the location.  You’ll find everything from sports teams to popular food items.   You’ll also find sea life trees, upside down trees, and an extra large tree standing over 18 feet tall to represent South Carolina.  They even offer a scavenger hunt to keep things fun for the whole family.

The Festival of Trees is truly magical and should be at the top of your “things to do” list this year.  You can also enjoy time with Santa.  For more information, check out the flyers below.
