This is a huge celebratory weekend filled with July 4th activities all over the area. The fourth of July, also known as Independence Day, celebrates in a big way the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring our independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain.
The lucky people who have already reserved their Myrtle Beach SC vacation rentals and are in town now will witness a grand display of how coastal Carolinians celebrate the holiday. Up and down the beach front you'll see firework displays. Some towns, like Murrells Inlet, will be having their annual parade, while others like the Market Common in Myrtle Beach, an Italian Festival followed by fireworks.
There are many oceanfront Myrtle Beach SC vacation rentals and if you're in one of them you'll have a front row seat! From your balcony you can watch the action happen right from the comfort of your home-away-from-home. What could be easier than that! Here is the schedule of activities in the area:
