Although more known for being a getaway in the summer, Myrtle Beach is abundant in holiday bliss. From the Festival of Trees at the Ripley's Aquarium, the shows at the theaters, The Tree lighting ceremony at Broadway At The Beach to The Night of A Thousand Candles at the Brookgreen Gardens Plantation. Myrtle Beach may not look like a holiday postcard scene, but no doubt the Christmas spirit is there.

    Great take - I would to do quick visits to those places but I wouldn't get into too much - I am always afraid that if you get into Christmas a lot, the day itself might turn out to be an anti climax so I keep it on the down low
    Is this still revelant?

    Damn, now I really wish I could go there. I know of a bunch of friends that have already been there but I've never had the chance. :'(

    These all look lovely. I like the biltmore estate the best
    • It is even prettier inside! I went there a few years ago with a school group. I have only been to 1,2,4, and 7 for Bristol. Plus at Dolly Parton's Themepark all the rides except the water rides run even the rollercoasters are decorated for Christmas.
