Welcome 2019 in Style at These Grand Strand New Year’s Events

If you’re looking to usher in 2019 in a place where the entire family is welcomed and where the heavy winter wardrobe isn’t quite as critical, look no further than the Grand Strand and The Strand Resort on the Myrtle Beach oceanfront. While you’re visiting, check out one of these great ways to welcome the new year on the Grand Strand:

Brookgreen Gardens — New Year’s Eve Stroll Under the Lights: Wherever you may be headed for your after-hours festivities, you can start your evening off with a candlelit stroll through the beauty of Brookgreen Gardens. Thousands of hand-lit candles and holiday lights will illuminate the grounds of these popular Murrells Inlet sculpture gardens from 6 to 9 p.m., all while music sets the mood. Learn more at brookgreen.org.

Market Common — A Southern Times Square: At this shopping/dining/entertainment hot spot in Myrtle Beach, New York City’s famous Times Square New Year’s Eve celebration gets a decidedly Southern makeover. The fun activities offered at past editions of this New Year’s party have included a live-stream of the Times Square festivities on a jumbo screen, a mirror-ball drop at midnight and a fireworks show starting just after to welcome the new year with a bang. You can bring the kids along, too, as such children’s entertainment staples as bounce houses and face painters will be provided. Live music and a selection of Market Common food and drink vendors will also keep the atmosphere festive into the new year. For more information, visit marketcommonmb.com.

Murrells Inlet MarshWalk — New Year’s Eve on the MarshWalk: For those looking to head for the Southern Strand to ring in the new year, this half-mile wooden boardwalk bordering a saltwater estuary in historic Murrells Inlet will have plenty of fun on tap. Each of the MarshWalk’s eight restaurants will offer great dinner and drink specials, and live music will emanate from all the area stages. Bringing an explosive start to the new year, a fireworks show at midnight will welcome in 2019. Visit marshwalk.com to learn more.

More Fireworks Shows: At top Myrtle Beach attraction Broadway at the Beach and North Myrtle Beach hot spot Barefoot Landing, free fireworks shows will light the Carolina skies this New Year’s Eve. At Barefoot Landing, the New Year’s Eve Fireworks Spectacular will get rolling at 7 p.m., while Broadway at the Beach will light the fuse on its Fireworks Extravaganza at 8 p.m.

This is just a sampling of the exciting ways Grand Strand visitors can welcome 2019 in style this New Year’s Eve. And during your stay, The Strand Resort can provide you and your party crew with easy access to all of the year-ending action while you enjoy our comfortable oceanfront accommodations and wide range of amazing amenities. Book your New Year’s getaway at The Strand today — and get ready for a spectacular start to 2019 on the Carolina coast!
