Christmas in Myrtle Beach

Christmas time is a beautiful time of year when lights are sparkling and ornaments are shining. There is nothing better than taking in a great Christmas themed show and reveling in the holiday spirit. Luckily Myrtle Beach has the most wonderful Christmas shows, parades and tree lightings to encompass the holiday joy.

You can even make your own holiday joy right at Crown Reef; we have year round amenities for the whole family. Make sure to pack your swim suit and take advantage of the indoor pool, hot tubs and our seasonally enclosed Waterpark!

Do your kids love arcade games? We have a state of the art coinless, ticketless arcade they will love called Game On! It’s easy, you load money on to game cards and away the kids can play. When they win, the tickets are loaded on to the game card and can be redeemed for awesome prizes at the Winner’s Circle.
