The Ultimate Guide To North Myrtle Beach Entertainment

Don’t spend this vacation sitting in your room debating where to go for your night out. Read this post to get the low-down on all the best entertainment North Myrtle Beach has to offer!

North Myrtle Beach Entertainment

I was recently talking to a few guests of North Myrtle Beach Vacation Rentals, and they told me something I found very interesting (actually, it’s what drew me to write this article).

What they said was that though they absolutely loved our beach, they were overwhelmed by the sheer number of entertainment options found in the area. Rather than making for an exciting vacation schedule, this “information overload” had the opposite effect.

The couple told me they didn’t have enough info to decide where to go, and ended up staying in for the night. Now, that’s surely not the best way to enjoy your vacation. This post will serve to make sure you don’t fall into the same trap.

Alabama Theatre

This Myrtle Beach staple was founded by members of the famous rock band Alabama as a way to give back to the community where they honed their musical chops.

Since it opened its doors back in 1993, the theatre has been voted the #1 best live entertainment theatre in Myrtle Beach time and time again.

If you’re a country music fanatic, or if you’re planning on visiting during the Christmas season (for the renowned “South’s Greatest Christmas Show”), you simply have to visit the Alabama Theatre on your next trip Myrtle Beach.

The Carolina Opry / Calvin Gilmore Theatre

Speaking of country music, how would you like to check out the largest country music enterprise on the whole East Coast? That’s exactly what you’ll get when you step into the world-famous Calvin Gilmore Theatre.

If it’s accolades you’re looking for, this place has got you covered there too! In fact, the theatre’s main attraction (The Carolina Opry) is the only show that’s won the Governor’s Cup, which is the “gold medal” of tourism awards.

The Palace Theatre

It’s a sad fact that most of us will never get to see music legends like The Beatles in concert. But if you spend a night out at The Palace Theatre, you’ll get the next best thing!

That’s because (as of 2015) they’ve got a full lineup of the Greatest Tribute Bands live in concert. Broadway fans will also be drawn to the theatre because of its popularity among travelling “off-broadway” shows.

Legends In Concert Theatre

While we’re on the subject of tribute musical artists, how about an entertainment venue dedicated to just that? The Legends In Concert Theatre is an institution that’s payed tribute to hundreds of musicians over its more than 30 years of shows.

The current lineup is Elvis Presley, the Blues Brothers, Dolly Parton, Rod Stewart, and Nat King Cole, so don’t wait — check out these legends before they’re gone forever!

Now that you know all about our gigantic variety of entertainment options, you’ve got no excuse for boredom. The question is — where will you go when you visit North Myrtle Beach?
