Drive Through Millions Of Lights At The Great Christmas Light Show In South Carolina This Holiday

The Palmetto State definitely knows how to brighten the holidays. With scores of drive-through lights displays and walk-through Christmas lights this year, there should never be a dull moment this December. If you’re looking for things to do in the Grand Strand area (after shopping and dining, perhaps), then head over to The Great Christmas Light Show for some of the best Christmas lights in South Carolina. This fun holiday activity promises to be a jolly treat for the whole family.

Ready to check this out? The Great Christmas Light Show takes place nightly from November 21 through December 30 (except for Thanksgiving Day, November 24, and Christmas Day, December 25) from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the North Myrtle Beach Park and Sports Complex. The cost per vehicle with up to 15 persons is $15 when Santa’s village is closed and $20 when it’s open (rates are higher for vehicles with a greater occupancy). Santa’s Village is open Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday only from November 25 through December 11 and nightly from December 15 through 30 (except it’s closed on Christmas Day). Some of the activities within Santa’s Village cost an additional fee. Learn more from the North Myrtle Beach Parks and Recreation’s page for The Great Christmas Light Show.

Best Christmas Lights In South Carolina

October 22, 2022

Where else can I see South Carolina Christmas lights this year?

For additional Christmas light viewing events, check out the walk-through Brookgreen Gardens Nights of a Thousand Candles in Murrell’s Inlet, the Fantasy of Lights at Swan Lake Iris Gardens in Sumter, and Lights Before Christmas at Riverbanks Zoo & Gardens, Columbia’s longest-running holiday lights event, just to name a few.

What are some unique ways to celebrate Christmas in South Carolina?

While viewing Christmas lights is a lot of fun and probably the most common Christmas experience, there are others that provide a little something different for the holiday season. RiverOaks in Awendaw, an outdoor German Christmas market is a unique event where you can enjoy delicious food and wonderful music and shop handmade German gift items. Another unique experience that also provides a way to celebrate the reason for the season is the Singing Christmas Tree in charming Georgetown. In Greenville, you can go ice skating at the Ice on Main rink set up during the holiday season and see a different type of lights event at The Roper Mountain Holiday Laser Light Show.

What are the best Christmas towns in South Carolina?

We have some gorgeous “Christmas towns” in South Carolina! Fountain Inn holds an annual Christmas “Inn” our Town festival, during which the town is transformed into what looks like something out of a Hallmark movie, complete with horse-drawn Christmas carriage rides, food, entertainment, and more. Every year for four days, Rock Hill becomes “Christmasville,” with more activities and experiences than you could imagine.
