Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
It’s almost as if the people of Myrtle Beach spend the rest of the year getting ready for the snowbirds to fly down during the winter. There’s no better example of this than their Winter Wonderland At The Beach. Many of us wouldn’t mind getting away from the cold, but we’d have to admit there’s those classic winter activities we’d miss.
A perfect example is ice skating. Thankfully, at Myrtle Beach’s Winter Wonderland you’ll still be able to experience that. Once you’re done there, you’ll be able to take a walk through the park to experience a wonderful light display full of classic Christmas cheer.
Even the boardwalk is lit up to match the holiday season. Along it you’ll find many shops and restaurants open just waiting to serve you up that classic southern hospitality.
You might think of Florida as the place to hit the beaches down south as a winter escape but what if I told you its neighbor state might be the real hot spot? If you’re asking why, it’s simple, everyone thinks of Florida as the place to go year round and that means constant crowds on most days, regardless of the season.
Hop one state over and you’ll find no short supply of southern hospitality. Along 30 miles of shoreline, you’ll find plenty of small towns each with their own charm in the greater Mobile area.
In the city of Mobile itself, you’ll find plenty of museums all of which allow you to deeply engross yourself in the rich local history.
It’s hard to beat Dahlonega when looking at a southern town during the winter season. Love them or hate them, Hallmark movies are a quintessential part of the season for many people and not one, but two, Hallmark movies have been filmed in that very town. For many, there’s not going to be a town more Christmas than this.
The winter charm doesn’t stop at what you might’ve seen on screen either. It might even be more charming in real life. If you’re visiting there, you’ll find a downtown full of Christmas cheer thanks to the carriage rides, parades, and Santa himself might even make an appearance or two. Top all of that off with Christmas carolling and you’re sure to have a festive trip.
