On the Carolina coast, it’s much easier to find soft beach sand than cold, fluffy snow. And anyone searching the Grand Strand for a naturally growing Fraser fir, the most popular type of Christmas tree in the world, is certainly in for a challenge. (But they’re likely to find plenty of palm trees during the coastal quest.)
But one thing there’s certainly no shortage of in the Myrtle Beach area: the Christmas spirit. And for those seeking out Christmas shops on the Grand Strand, we’ve got good news to share — the popular beach destination is home to some great ones.
Looking for the perfect place to pick up seasonal staples like Christmas ornaments, stockings, lights, wreaths, trees, and other Christmas decor during your visit to the Grand Strand? Check out one of these five top Christmas shops in the Myrtle Beach area:
With locations in North Myrtle Beach, South Myrtle Beach and Pawleys Island, Christmas Mouse is filled wall to wall with Christmas offerings. From ornaments of all types (including a large selection of beach-themed Christmas ornaments like Santa lounging on a flamingo float) to decorations, collectibles and more, this is a prime place to load up your Santa sack with Christmas-themed goodies.
Found at Myrtle Beach shopping/dining/entertainment hot spot Broadway at the Beach, Christmas at the Beach offers a range of Christmas decor for spirited shoppers to choose from — and extends the holiday season well beyond the winter months.
Located on Beach Drive in the quaint North Carolina fishing village of Calabash, Callahan’s of Calabash offer 35,000 square feet of shopping space, with its St. Nick Nacks Christmas shop serving as home to more than 150 decorated Christmas trees and 4 million-plus ornaments. Other delightful draws here include Department 56 Christmas villages, Mark Roberts fairies and a collection of Jim Shore pieces.
Formerly known as Havens and found in North Myrtle Beach shopping/dining/entertainment complex Barefoot Landing, Heavens Marketplace specializes in home decor with a farmhouse/cottage style. And while the focus isn’t 100% on Christmas offerings, you’ll find plenty of Christmas treasures at this largely faith-based retailer during the holiday season — and the candle collection is worth going out of your way for.
Found at Tanger Outlets on Highway 17 in Myrtle Beach, the Disney Outlet Store is a prime place to find deals on all things Mickey, Minnie and friends — as well as on Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar and National Geographic merchandise. It’s also a great spot to grab Christmas gifts for fans of Disney characters (and the additional associated franchises mentioned above), and especially during the holiday season, Christmas-themed offerings can be found among the store’s shelves and racks.
