Nights of a Thousand Candles of Myrtle Beach

Our mild winter weather is perfect for a visit to the Myrtle Beach area. You can still enjoy beach activities, our golf courses, and plenty of indoor options. Theatres with live entertainment provide for great winter fun. You’ll want to check out Brookgreen Gardens, as an outdoor wonderland of art and wildlife.

Brookgreen Gardens is located in Murrell’s Inlet, just south of Myrtle Beach down Highway 17. Internationally known for their impressive displays of horticulture and sculptures, they also host a spectacular Christmas event every year called Nights of a Thousand Candles. Every Friday and Saturday night in December, the gardens are lit with a beautiful combination of electric lights and thousands of hand-lit candles. The atmosphere feels almost surreal as you wander through mazes of brilliantly lit trees, hanging Spanish moss, and wonderful works of modern and traditional sculpture created by renowned artists.

Several scenes are set up throughout the gardens which feature vocal ensembles, jazz groups, and bell choirs. The music sets a holiday mood as you stroll along the pathways between each exhibit. While the emphasis is placed on the nighttime ambience and soft light, there are still trees in blossom and green fauna everywhere – impressive considering the season and chill in the air.

Nights of a Thousand Candles provides hours of family fun. You’ll want to plan your time wisely so you can appreciate each piece of art and light displays. The musical performances last until the gardens close at 10:00 pm. Refreshments and drinks are available for purchase. Have dinner at their onsite restaurant before the tour!

Don’t miss this impressive attraction while you’re here at Ocean Drive Beach Rentals of North Myrtle Beach. Your family will want to make it an annual Christmas tradition!

We hope to see you at this year’s North Myrtle Beach Christmas Parade, set for this Saturday, December 3rd. Several floats will be motoring down Main Street to Ocean Boulevard in familiar holiday fashion, with marching bands, beauty queens, and local personalities. The annual celebration kicks off at 5:30 pm and lasts until at least 8:00 pm.

Ocean Drive Beach Rentals will be passing out assorted candy from their brightly decorated holiday float. As an even sweeter gift, we will also be passing out our popular signature beach frisbees. Make sure you get to the parade route early, so you can stake out that perfect spot to watch the North Myrtle Beach Christmas Parade with family and friends.


Our 2010 North Myrtle Beach Christmas Parade Float

We love participating in the Christmas parade. It gives us a chance to celebrate the holidays with our family, friends, and meet new people. Some spectators even put on as much of a show as the parade itself. Countless elves and Santa impersonators always stick out in the crowd. Stay tuned to Ocean Drive Beach Rentals’ Facebook page and vacation blog for event pictures in the coming week.

Dress warm! Saturday’s North Myrtle Beach forecast is calling for sunny skies, with high temperatures topping out at around 65 degrees. Expect the temperature to drop to around 45 – 50 degrees by the time the parade kicks off. There is no rain forecasted until late next week.
