5 Fun and Festive Reasons To Consider a Holiday Stay at the Breakers Resort

For most, holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas are special times spent at home (or at a relative’s home) making memories with family. But for adventurous types and/or those looking to change up their usual scenery on the special day, these late-year holidays offer a perfect opportunity to try something new — and even better, to make extra-unique memories with the family while doing it.


Is your family full of beach lovers who’d likely prefer to spend their holiday break on the coast with the Atlantic Ocean in their backyard? If so, why not mix it up this year and take one (or even both) of your holiday celebrations to the Carolina coast?


Consider these reasons that spending Thanksgiving and/or Christmas at The Breakers Resort on the Myrtle Beach oceanfront could make for the most unique, relaxing, fun-filled and memorable holiday you’ve experienced in a while:

Located at 1410 North Ocean Boulevard in THEBlvd oceanfront entertainment complex, Legends Sports Pub & Grille is Myrtle Beach’s newest sports bar. And offering some welcome news for sports fans staying at The Breakers, it’s located right on the beach less than a half-mile south of the resort.

Food and Drinks

Among the long list of amenities found at The Breakers, our on-site food and beverage options make it easy to enjoy delicious, no-hassle meals without ever having to leave the resort property. The tasty on-property options available to our holiday-season guests include:

– Papa’s Restaurant, where a homestyle breakfast buffet is served from 6 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. daily (seasonal hours may vary)

Walks on the Beach

Of course, for beach lovers, the biggest attraction at The Breakers Resort (both literally and figuratively) may be the Atlantic Ocean found in the resort’s backyard … and mere steps from their room. And while the ocean waters may be too cool for swimming during the holiday season, our stretch of picturesque oceanfront is perfect for long strolls through the soft beach sands — and is a great spot for catching the sunrise over the Atlantic waters.

Festive Christmas Shows

The Grand Strand is renowned for its collection of festive Christmas-themed shows. And some of the best in the area even offer showings on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Eve. If you’re looking for a fun way to celebrate the season in the Myrtle Beach area, check out the November and December performance calendars for The South’s Grandest Christmas Show at The Alabama Theater, The Christmas Show of the South at The Carolina Opry, the Holiday Spectacular at Legends in Concert and the Pirates Voyage Christmas Show.

Sweeping Seasonal Scenery

As one might expect, a number of local establishments close their doors on Thanksgiving and Christmas. But the picturesque scenery in the Myrtle Beach area never takes a day off. Ever wanted to open your Christmas presents with beach and ocean views? Choose a room at The Breakers with an oceanfront balcony, and you can take in sweeping vistas of the surf and sand while tearing into your holiday bounty.
