  • A Very Broadway Christmas Parade is one of the most popular Myrtle Beach Christmas events. This annual parade goes straight through the Myrtle Beach shopping district to entertain those who are browsing and dining nearby. It’s a morning activity, so you can cheer over your brunch plate as the parade passes. The city center and boardwalk sport festive decorations, making Myrtle Beach one of the best holiday destinations.
  • Nights of a Thousand Lights is one of the longest-running Myrtle Festivals, with three weeks of events each December. The wide timeframe makes it easier for groups who need to agree on travel dates. The Brookgreen Gardens shine through the night with the best Myrtle Beach Christmas lights—and more than 2,700 candles. They have cider, cocoa, wine, holiday music, and carolers for you to enjoy as you explore the glimmering gardens.
  • The South’s Grandest Christmas Show is just what it claims to be: grand. There’s singing, dancing, comedy, and special effects at this over-the-top Myrtle Beach Christmas events series. It runs almost every night in November and December each year, so it’s another of the most accessible Myrtle Beach events for groups.

Myrtle Beach Surfing and Surf Lessons 101

Myrtle Beach Surfing and Surf Lessons 101

Surfing is a sport many people dream of, but few ever have the chance to try it. It’s often considered an activity only done in Hawaii or California, and it can be intimidating to attempt something new surrounded by the biggest waves and stars in the industry. East Coast surfing, particularly in the Grand Strand, is just as fun as what you’ll find out west—and it’s more inviting to beginners. Myrtle Beach is one of the best surf spots on the East Coast, so there are plenty of surf lessons in Myrtle Beach and around Together Resorts. Whether your entire travel group wants to attend a Myrtle Beach surfing camp or you alone want surf lessons, Myrtle Beach has the right option for you.

Myrtle Beach Surfing Camps

A Myrtle Beach surfing camp is the way to go if you are intensely interested in the sport. At these multi-day group surf lessons, Myrtle Beach’s finest instructors will teach you everything you need to know. Kokopelli Surf Camp offers a three-day camp with three students per instructor. They provide all your equipment and some snacks. Jack’s Surf Lessons has a bit more flexibility, with camps running between two and five days. They also provide equipment and snacks.

Although your entire travel group can stay together at Together Resorts, different people often have different interests while on vacation. If only a few people in your group are interested in East Coast surfing, private or small-group lessons might be the way to go. Kokopelli and Jack’s both have some of the best surf lessons Myrtle Beach has to offer. Kokopelli’s small-group lessons pair three students with one instructor. Jack’s will pair you randomly, or you can sign up with a few friends. Lesson groups are arranged based on age and skill level.

Rental Surfing South Carolina

Once you’ve learned the basics of Myrtle Beach surfing, it’s time to rent a board and hit the waves outside of a class environment. Each of these surf lesson providers is also a rental shop, so you can continue to practice on the type of board you used while learning. When you adventure to the best surf spots on the East Coast, remember to follow the rules and regulations, such as staying at least 75 yards away from any piers. And always bring a buddy.

#1 Grand Strand Group Resort

Whatever brings you to town, Together Resorts will provide comfortable accommodations and plenty of fun. From our amenities to all the local attractions, your Myrtle Beach vacation will be nothing short of incredible. Call 855-585-2121 to book your beach getaway.

Craft Breweries in Myrtle Beach

Craft Breweries in Myrtle Beach

The craft beer scene in Myrtle Beach and much of the Grand Strand hasn’t quite taken off yet, baffling visiting beer lovers and locals in need of a unique brew. Myrtle Beach does, however, have three beer staples in the heart of the city. Experts believe it’s only a matter of time before entrepreneurs realize the massive potential for craft breweries in Myrtle Beach. There have been murmurs over the years about new beer ventures potentially opening in the Myrtle Beach area, but nothing has surfaced for one reason or another.

For now, though, our beautiful beach city does have one brewery and two brewpubs that are currently serving some of the best beer in South Carolina. Whether your group is in town for a wedding, conference, or tournament, Together Resorts has the largest selection of group vacation rentals that sleep anywhere from eight to 128. After an eventful day, treat the whole gang to a pint at these three breweries in Myrtle Beach.

New South Brewing

New South Brewing rests in a quiet industrial neighborhood less than a mile from the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Ripley’s Believe It or Not! For those who are accustomed to grand brew halls or lavish taprooms may be surprised to find New South in a shabby factory-building-turned-brewery. New South will be celebrating its 20th anniversary this November, a milestone very few envisioned when this microbrewery took flight in 1998. While this Myrtle Beach beer staple is due for a new facility, there’s no denying the whimsical charm and bare-bones appeal of this brewery. There’s pleasant outdoor seating, an old-school bar, and indoor event space near the tall, silver fermenters. But beer aficionados don’t arrive at New South for the decor. The beer is hands down the best in town. Their taps often rotate, but we highly recommend the Dark Star robust porter, Oktoberfest amber lager, and the all-American IPA.

Gordon Biersch of Myrtle Beach

Gordon Biersch has restaurants all over the country, but each brewpub has a unique lineup of beers depending on the skill level of the head brewer. This Myrtle Beach staple is often overlooked because it’s a chain, but there’s no denying their delicious, rotating craft beer selections. Gordon Biersch is less than a mile from the Grand Park Recreational Complex, making it a popular spot for teams or families after baseball, softball, and soccer tournaments. Some of the beers we’re absolutely loving right now at Gordon Biersch are the Czech pilsner, festbier, Mosaic IPA, and hefeweizen. It doesn’t hurt that their tacos are to-die-for!

Liberty Brewery and Grill

Liberty Brewery may not receive the rave reviews that New South and Gordon Biersch earn, but it’s conveniently located inside Broadway at the Beach. They also have 16 in-house beers on tap (and four guest brews). Their beer recipes are also used in their High Point, NC, headquarters. Not every beer at Liberty is a home run, but their Grapefruited Abe IPA, Cuckoo for Cocoa Stout, Blueberry Blonde, and many other seasonals are divine.

Visit Myrtle Beach

After you’ve visited these three breweries in Myrtle Beach, return to your vacation rental for an evening in the swimming pool, hot tub, or film room. Give Together Resorts a call at 1-855-585-2121 to learn more about our sizable vacation homes within minutes of the beach!
