In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

The Great Christmas Light Show is a must see

You'll be mesmerized by over 2 million lights at The Great Christmas Light Show in North Myrtle Beach!

The Great Christmas Light Show in North Myrtle Beach means you’ll get to enjoy a magical winter wonderland at the beach!  The North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex is transformed into Santa’s Village and is coated in over 2 million lights for you to enjoy.  As you drive through the 1.5 mile stretch, you’ll see different zones where the lights come to life and leave a twinkle in your eye.  There’s even a section where the lights are coordinated with the music in your car.  Each year, they try to add something new and different and this year, you’ll enjoy even more fun than ever before.

We were so excited when one of Santa’s helpers invited us to explore and venture through.  Come along with us for a sneak peak of what you can enjoy all Holiday season long.

You can now venture to Santa’s Village through a lighted forest.  It’s truly magical to see.  Once you arrive, you can ice skate, indulge in hot chocolate and s’mores, ride a 40 foot slide that makes you feel as though you’re sledding down a massive hill, and of course meet Santa himself.  Visits with Santa are free of charge and you can spend as much time as you like with him.  If you haven’t visited already, this is a must for the whole family this year!
