How to Celebrate Independence Day on the Grand Strand

The weather is heating up, so it’s not too early to start planning your Independence Day trip!

Myrtle Beach is the prime destination for summer fun, especially for July 4th. What could be better than fun in the sun with your family on our nation’s birthday?

Here are tips on how to make the most of your long holiday weekend Grand Strand getaway.

1. Start Planning Now

It’s no secret: Stealing away to Myrtle Beach is a popular idea, especially for an extended weekend. Planning early gives you a better shot at the accommodations you want. You can get tickets to activities, and reserve a table at your favorite restaurant.

2. Make it a Long Weekend with the Family

In 2021, Independence Day falls on a Sunday. That’s the perfect reason to take off Friday before and July 5 (the observed holiday) for a long weekend. Whether your family is a couple or grandparents, aunts, and uncles, there’s a great way to do this on the Grand Strand.

COUPLES

Whether you’re a new item or long-time companions, Myrtle Beach is a great place to get away. Enjoy a suite with a kitchen to prepare a meal together and a balcony with an ocean view.

WITH THE KIDS

A Brittain Resort property is awesome for kids of all ages. Easy beach access and cool water features provide all they need to have a blast with you for the holiday.

EXTENDED FAMILIES

Book a suite, condo, or more than one room to make this a great family get-together. Get roo

3. Have Fun in the Sun

The Grand Strand offers so many options for entertainment. Sometimes, all you need is some sun and sand to have a great time with the family, too. Don’t forget the sunscreen!

BUILD A SANDCASTLE

Bring your kids’ favorite figures and make the castles to scale for them. Buckets are essential, and a ruler and plastic knife are perfect for leveling and detail. 

INVESTIGATE A TIDE POOL

These shallow spots of seawater appear at low tide and often brim with treasures. Look for shells and sharks’ teeth, but be careful not to hurt live organisms, such as crabs and mollusks.

FLY A KITE

Choose one with a tail so it can take strong seabreezes, and find an open space to lift off. Ocean winds are steady to keep your kite aloft without tons of turbulence.

A good day at the beach should include great snacks. You don’t have to find a place to buy a treat — you can make them on your own.
