We’re rapidly approaching the spookiest season of the year: Halloween. Late-October, Halloween-themed getaways are one of the fastest-growing trends in the travel industry. And it doesn’t get much better than Myrtle Beach during harvest. Our coastal South Carolina haven sees much less foot traffic, an influx of inexpensive flights, and ideal temperatures. Every year, families, groups, and couples from across the East Coast choose to spend Halloween in Myrtle Beach, primarily because there is a wide variety of spooktacular activities around every turn. The best place to start and finish each day is our sandy beach here at North Shore Oceanfront Hotel. We recently underwent vast renovations and a rebrand in an effort to provide an even more exciting, relaxing, and luxurious stay for our guests.
Getting into the Halloween Spirit: Halloween in Myrtle Beach
To ensure that your well-deserved late-October escape to South Carolina is nothing short of flawless, we’ve compiled our eight favorite Halloween activities in Myrtle Beach. Travelers (mainly families) have been spending Halloween in Myrtle Beach for decades thanks to our city’s wide array of family-friendly activities, ranging from “Spook-quarium sleepovers” to chilling haunted houses. You’re also encouraged to host a classic Myrtle Beach Halloween party right here at North Shore Oceanfront Hotel—simply give us a call at 800-959-6418 to speak with a representative about room rental possibilities.
Witches, ghouls, superheroes, and princesses of all ages (adults included) stroll along the Murrells Inlet MarshWalk every Halloween in hopes of winning cash or prizes for the best costume. With over $4,000 in cash and prizes, you don’t want to miss this restaurant-hopping event.
Join thousands of other trick-or-treaters to witness a Halloween firework show that trumps all others.
BooFest is one of our favorite kid-friendly (and pet-friendly) North Myrtle Beach Halloween events. The kiddos will love the pet costume show, live music, pumpkin patch, and inflatables!
If you’re searching for some good, old-fashioned fun around Halloween in Myrtle Beach, look no further than the annual Howl-O-Scream. The whole family can enjoy hayrides, trick-or-treating, marshmallow roasts, and several other scare-free activities.
The Boo-quarium Bash inside Ripley’s Aquarium remains one of the most ingenious Myrtle Beach Halloween activities. Kids can join the costume parade, brave the haunted walk, enjoy a wide variety of classic fall treats, and even spend the night in the aquarium!
The Nightmare Haunted House isn’t for little ghouls as this Halloween beach staple has been scaring teenagers and adults for decades. Watch their frightening video—if you dare.
We love taking our little ones to Thompson Farm during harvest season. Families can meander through a 6.5-acre corn maze, watch classic Halloween films (such as The Nightmare Before Christmas, Frankenweenie, and Hocus Pocus), pick pumpkins, and so much more!
Join a 75-minute, one-mile storytelling ghost walk along Conway’s historic (and haunted) district.
