Spend Thanksgiving with Marina Inn at Grande Dunes

Everyone loves a big family Thanksgiving…a house full of family and friends, the smell of turkey and dressing baking, football on TV, after dinner naps and the fun and fellowship of those you love, but sometimes it’s nice to take a break from the stress and pressure of hosting the perfect family gathering and get away from the holiday hustle and bustle. We have the perfect alternative for you!

Picture yourself spending the Thanksgiving holiday in luxury accommodations overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway and just moments away from Myrtle Beach area shopping, dining, shows and attractions. How does that sound? Escape to Myrtle Beach with Marina Inn at Grande Dunes for your Thanksgiving holiday this year!

Myrtle Beach enjoys mild temperatures almost year-round, so you can still come to the beach during the holidays and take advantage of many outdoor activities during your stay. Play a round of golf or tennis, take a stroll on the beach, or just watch the sunset from your private balcony. Of course the day after Thanksgiving (Black Friday) is the official kick-off to the holiday shopping season, so get a head start on your Christmas list (or just enjoy a little retail therapy) while you’re in town! There are many shopping options nearby. Barefoot Landing, Tanger Outlets, Broadway at the Beach, Coastal Grand Mall and Market Common are all conveniently located near Marina Inn at Grande Dunes and are sure to have shopping incentives going on throughout the holiday weekend.

Maybe you’d rather avoid the crowds at the shopping centers and simply just be entertained. The holiday season brings great opportunities for shows in Myrtle Beach. The Carolina Opry and Pirates Voyage, located just across the highway from Marina Inn at Grande Dunes, both have popular holiday shows going this time of year that are fun for the entire family. They will sell out, so be sure and get your tickets early! Of course, there is no shortage of great dining in the area, and Marina Inn at Grande Dunes offers several dining options onsite as well.

Our Thanksgiving Package includes luxurious accommodations in a Grande Queen guest room for two nights and tickets to our highly anticipated Annual Thanksgiving Brunch for (2) adults and (2) children. The Thanksgiving Brunch includes traditional Thanksgiving favorites like carved turkey and dressing as well and coastal treats like chilled shrimp and oysters on the half shell. Pack your bags and leave the cooking and clean up to us!

We hope to see you at Marina Inn Grande Dunes this Thanksgiving!

The Carolina Opry – A Top Myrtle Beach Attraction

The Myrtle Beach area has been a country music hotbed for years. Of course, country music legends, Alabama, got their start right on Ocean Boulevard at the world-famous Bowery, the Carolina Country Music Festival (CCMF) has been held in Myrtle Beach for the past four years, and there was even a Myrtle Beach country music jamboree in the early ‘80s featuring major country artists like Conway Twitty, Johnny Cash, Tammy Wynette and more. With that history, it’s no surprise that Calvin Gilmore envisioned the Grand Strand to be a good place to start a country music theater. In 1986, the Carolina Opry was opened in Surfside Beach (right on Highway 17 near the intersection of Surfside Drive and 17 Business). They started out with just 12 performers and were the only music theater in the area for seven years.

In 1992, the current location of the Carolina Opry opened where highways 17 Business and Bypass meet on the north end of the Strand. By this time, Myrtle Beach was beginning to look like Branson, Missouri with its multiple dinner/music/show offerings. At one time there were quite a few theaters in town. Some have come and gone, but the Carolina Opry has remained a staple and major Myrtle Beach attraction for more than 30 years.

The award-winning Carolina Opry was named “Most Outstanding South Carolina Attraction” by the South Carolina’s Governor’s Cup. Additionally, Carolina Opry performers have been featured on nationally televised shows like The Voice and America’s Got Talent. What was originally a country music show has evolved over the years to cover a wide variety of music genres. Carolina Opry has also added many special themed shows, some of which run year round, most notably their annual Christmas show which sells out year after year.

A night at the Carolina Opry is a perfect date night or good fun for an entire family or large group. Customers love its close proximity to Marina Inn Grande Dunes, so be sure and add it to your itinerary while staying with us. With that in mind, check out the special Carolina Opry package deals available on our packages page. Come stay with us and enjoy the music!

Top Outdoor Shopping in Myrtle Beach

As we move into the milder fall season, what better way to take it all in than with a little outdoor shopping? The Myrtle Beach area has been a great shopping destination for many years, but these days there are even more of the outdoor variety which seems to have become a trend all over the country recently.

So you’re in town looking for a little retail therapy, but you would also like to enjoy the fresh fall air? Where should you start? We have put together a great list for you! We’ll start closer to the Marina Inn Grande Dunes location and work out from there.

Tanger Outlet

Tanger Outlet has outlet malls all over the country and two right here on the Grand Strand. The closest to Marina Inn Grande Dunes is the one located just off Highway 17. Outlets are a great shopping choice for those who desire high quality, but do not want to pay high quality prices. This location offers more than 95 stores with high profile brands such as; Vineyard Vines, Kate Spade, Michael Kors, Ann Taylor LOFT, Adidas and more. There is also a food court located within the property. Stop by their customer service office to receive coupon books and other special offers. Tanger Outlets – Myrtle Beach is located at 10835 Kings Rd. in Myrtle Beach.

Barefoot Landing

Barefoot Landing is the original outdoor shopping destination for the Myrtle Beach area going way back to when it was a collection of small shops with rustic, sandy walkways. Today, it is a shopper’s paradise with everything from small, specialty gift shops to larger, national chain anchor stores. Additionally, if you’re making a day out of it, there are various eating establishments within the property as well as other attractions like Alligator Adventure, Alabama Theater, and the House of Blues. A recent addition, Lulu’s restaurant, owned by Jimmy Buffet’s sister, Lucy offers waterfront dining and an outdoor activity area featuring a ropes course and arcade. After shopping ‘til you drop, relax with a drink in hand while the kids play! Barefoot Landing is located at 4898 Hwy. 17 S. in North Myrtle Beach.

Market Common

Market Common has become a Myrtle Beach must visit destination since it’s development in 2008. Located on what was once the Myrtle Beach Air Force Base (closed in 1993), the 114-acre lifestyle center was designed as a live/work community incorporating shopping, dining and living space into one city center. Beautifully landscaped walkways with fountains, park benches and rocking chairs create an exquisite shopping atmosphere at Market Common. A collection of higher end shops selling everything from apparel to art and home decor, Market Common offers something for everyone. A large Barnes and Noble as well as a 14-screen movie theater are located onsite as well. In addition to the superior shopping experience, Market Common also offers a host of popular eating establishments from the larger, nationally known P.F. Changs to smaller, local eateries. Additionally, there is a full schedule of events going on year-round at Market Common–everything from 5K races to food and drink festivals as well as seasonal carriage rides, movies in the park and more. Market Common is located at 4017 Deville St. in Myrtle Beach.

Hammock Shops Village

So this one is a southern hike from Marina Inn Grande Dunes, but well worth the trip. Located in the “arrogantly shabby” Pawleys Island, this eclectic shopping village has been around since 1938. The Hammock Shops offer a variety of small boutiques featuring everything from handmade collectables and jewelry to clothing and candy. Of course they call it the “Hammock” Shops for a reason…be sure and stop by the Original Pawleys Island Rope Hammock Shop where you can view first hand the art of hammock weaving and purchase one of your very own to take home! Hammock Shops Village is located at 10880 Ocean Hwy. in Pawleys Island.

Be sure and check the Marina Inn Grande Dunes specials page for upcoming package deals, book your stay and get the retail therapy started!

Sipping Sweetly – Duplin Winery

Looking for a great way to unwin(e)d while visiting the Grand Strand? Visit one of the Myrtle Beach area’s favorite attractions, Duplin Winery, voted Best Wine Tasting Bar by MyrtleBeach.com. Though you wouldn’t think of the Myrtle Beach area as wine country, we do have our own signature wine in this part of the world–sweet muscadine wine, made from the muscadine grape. The muscadine grape is native to the Southeastern United States and found primarily in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi, and Florida. Muscadine grapes are larger than average grapes with a much thicker skin as well. They are known for their sweet taste and strong aromatics. There are red and white varieties, but all are generally served chilled unlike most reds which are served room temperature.

Originally out of Rose Hill, NC, Duplin Winery, a three generation, family-owned winery, has been producing muscadine wines since the 1970s. In 2015, Duplin brought their delicious wine to the Myrtle Beach area with the opening of their second location. The winery offers a variety of muscadine wines such as; sweet reds, sweet whites and a dry Burgundy. Some of their award-winning Carolina wines include Magnolia, featured in Martha Stewart Living as a favorite summertime wine, Hatteras Red, a North Carolina favorite, and Scuppernong, America’s oldest wine. Situated right on Highway 17 just as you enter North Myrtle Beach and in front of Barefoot Landing, Duplin Winery offers daily tastings, special events, tours, a cafe and a gift shop selling wine and wine accessories and other local items to take home with you or even back to your hotel room.

A new favorite at Duplin Winery is the Sweetzer mix. Sweetzer is a specially designed mix specifically made to blend with corresponding Duplin wines and create a sweet, frozen treat–a wine slushie, if you will. What a great way to enjoy the already delicious Duplin wines!

A day spent at Duplin Winery may include educating yourself on their wine-making procedures, watching the bottling process, and shopping in the gift shop. Of course the best part of the Duplin Winery experience is just enjoying live music in the courtyard or or a nice breeze on the front porch sitting one of their many rocking chairs, all while sipping your favorite Duplin wine selection.

Did you know the Marina Inn Grande Dunes offers Duplin Winery package? Check out our package page for the details.

Duplin Winery is open Monday – Saturday, 11 a.m. until 8 p.m.
