Halloween at The Beach
Though Myrtle Beach is most known for our exciting summer events, don’t be fooled into thinking the town goes into hibernation after the season is over! The fall is full of exciting local events, especially around Halloween. If you are in the area during October, be sure to participate in some of the spook-tacular area events and attractions. From haunted houses to trick-or-treating and everything in between, Myrtle Beach is full of spooky fun.
Boardwalk Fright Nights
New to the area, the Myrtle Beach boardwalk will come alive (or dead, rather) with real zombies! Every weekend throught Halloween the downtown area will be overrun with these undead demons. Visitors can visit the Zombie Quarantine Zone for pictures and an up close and personal encounter with zombies. In addition, guests can enjoy live music on the boardwalk, half price area thrill rides and discounts on combo passes to the Ripley’s Haunted Adventure. This one of a kind experience is one that won't soon be forgotten! Just head to the boardwalk to see what all the buzz is about.
