Broadway at the Beach Review: Mermaids & Margaritas
We had an amazing time at Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach over the Fourth of July Holiday Weekend. If you are in the Myrtle Beach area, make sure to plan a day (or two) at the Broadway.
This is where you will find tourist shops, amusement park rides, Ripley’s Aquarium, fun restaurants, water adventures, and so much more. Be sure to plan ahead and check out their event calendar before you go. During the 4th of July Holiday Weekend, there were tons of activities for kids.
Broadway at the Beach Review (Family-Friendly Nightlife)
When we arrived at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina we drove straight to the famed Broadway at the Beach to take in the night-life on the lake’s boardwalk. We arrived a bit later than we anticipated so we only had a little over an hour to spend on the boardwalk before it closed.
We spent much of our time (and money) in Pavilion Park West. For young children, this is the perfect spot for carnival rides appropriate and fun for their size. Older kids will enjoy attractions and rides sprinkled throughout the rest of Broadway at the Beach.
Broadway at the Beach Review (Day-Time Fun)
After a restful night at the hotel, we returned to Broadway at the Beach for a day of mermaid makeovers and margaritas. See our review of both below:
The day started with a mermaid makeover at Sparkles Boutique at Myrtle Beach. If you have girly girls this is an absolute must visit. The whole store just breathes sparkles, pink fairy dust, and the cutest baby and toddler clothes.
We purchased a mermaid experience for our pirate princesses. The package included a mermaid swimsuit, mermaid fins, mermaid hair, makeup and, of course, SPARKLES!! Afterwards, the girls picked a fun song and performed for the store on stage.
Now newly-minted celebrities, the girls were awarded swanky swag bags. They were allowed to chose five fun and funky items to put in their string Sparkles back bags.
We left the store with a bag of fun dresses and our mermaid swag to continue our adventure along the boardwalk.
After the sparkly makeovers, the pirate crew headed over to dine at Margaritaville Myrtle Beach. The restaurant was bustling at lunch but we didn’t mind the wait as we were busy shopping in the Margaritaville gift shop. Lucky for my pocketbook, they seated us about 25 minutes later.
Everyone was excited because we were shown to the boat table. This is the one where you actually eat inside a small fishing boat. I love it because it contains the children to one area. Can I get an “amen” for booth seats?!
We started off with an appetizer of big, soft pretzel sticks with queso and a couple of margaritas. The kids ordered mac n’ cheese and penne pasta with butter sauce. The adults had cheeseburgers in paradise.
During our lunch we were treated to balloon animals from artists on stilts and saw the hurricane Margaritaville show several times. The entire restaurant stops to take in the fun.
