There is a special sparkle that falls over The Grand Stand in December. It’s not snow- the coastal climate is much too warm for that. Instead it’s a brand of holiday spirit unique to Myrtle Beach. During the holiday season each of the special features of Myrtle Beach takes on a special cheer, and annual events give visitors an opportunity to experience a Coastal Christmas. We will take you there during the season to see Myrtle Beach at its finest. Each of the area’s professional shows combine it’s signature entertainment elements with special holiday themes that will get you in the spirit.

Fifty specialty decorated Christmas Trees are stationed around the aquarium and each tree is decorated to remind us of the fifty states. We will enjoy provided refreshments during the program “ Teas and Trees”. Now that we are full of Christmas spirit we will head over to the original Benjamins Calabash Seafood, a landmark of the Grand Stand. Diners go station to station beneath mounted Sharks at this all you can eat seafood operation. It just happens to be a World Famous spot so eat your heart out.
