Rumor has it there are fireworks on the Grand Strand every night of the summer. Although we can’t say for sure that there aren’t some going off somewhere, we can tell you where to see them. And they’re everywhere.
It’s part of the seasonal allure in Myrtle Beach.
No matter how you spend your beach days, unwind at night with a fireworks display. Likely near your resort. Here are tips for watching the shows, too.
You’ll gasp. You’ll oooh. You’ll ahhh. This will be fun.
Bubbles, games, toys, electronics … whatever keeps the kids occupied before the show. Insect repellent is also a good idea. And something comfortable to sit in or on.
Kids’ ears are sensitive, and the noise might scare some. Find foam earplugs at the pharmacy, or invest in over-the-head headphone-style protection.
When the show is over, let the smoke clear and the crowds disperse. You might be waiting in traffic for a bit, so bring snacks and enjoy a little time with your family and friends.
Take in these Myrtle Beach shows all summer long.
Experience southern North Myrtle Beach for dinner and shopping. Then stay for the show. The fireworks will be on at 10 p.m. every Monday over the lake. See the Barefoot Landing calendar for other festivities this summer.
FUN FACT: A show in the Philippines set the Guinness World Record for the largest display. In 2016, the show went on for 1 hour, 1 minute, and 32.35 seconds. And it rained the whole time!
Here’s another area to eat and shop, then settle in for the fireworks. They’ll be on special Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays through the summer. Check out the Broadway at the Beach calendar for dates (all begin at 10 p.m.)
FUN FACT: Fireworks’ origins go back to China more than 2,000 years ago. China also supplies 90% of the world’s fireworks today.
TicketReturn.Com Field is home for Class A baseball all summer. And for Friday home games, you can catch postgame fireworks. Root for the home team, then watch the sparks fly after the final out. Visit the Myrtle Beach Pelicans schedule for more.
FUN FACT: So, what causes that whistling sound fireworks often make? Layers of organic salt mix with the oxidizer potassium perchlorate. They burn one at a time, which releases a gas that produces that rocket whistle sound.
In the hub of the Grand Strand, enjoy the ocean and boardwalk before fireworks. Hot Summer Nights is a series of activities and live entertainment for the family. Check the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk website for the schedule.
Pools, hot tubs, well-appointed condos … What’s not to love about those luxuries? You’ll find a clean, comfortable room at this oceanfront resort, with easy access to the beach. Check out specials, select your dates and room type, and plan your getaway today.
