Thanksgiving Day Dinner

Visit North Myrtle Beach this Thanksgiving

One of the best reasons to visit the North Myrtle Beach area during the Thanksgiving Day week is that you don’t have to cook dinner if you don’t want to. Many of the local restaurants will be open and will be offering a special Thanksgiving Day dinner menu. We understand that if you were home, you would have to figure out who is hosting dinner and the cleanup process too. But not this year as you can leave it up to someone else and there will be no cleanup to worry about. Just enjoy a Thanksgiving Day dinner together as a family at one of the many restaurants around town.

Shopping

Don’t worry about missing out on the sales on Black Friday this year while on vacation. There are plenty of shopping centers, outlet malls and malls that you can visit. Tanger Outlets has two different locations you can visit, and you will be able to grab some great deals there. There is also Barefoot Landing, Broadway at the Beach and even the two different malls to visit. No matter who you are searching a gift for, you will be able to find something for everyone on Black Friday. Just remember to leave room in your car to bring the gifts back home with you when your vacation is over.
