Imagine if you could take a much-needed fall vacation, celebrate Thanksgiving with family and friends in Myrtle Beach, knock out all your holiday shopping, and save money doing it. Now make that dream a reality.

By taking advantage of Compass Cove Oceanfront Resort’s special holiday rates and the Grand Strand’s famed shopping opportunities, guests can transform the Thanksgiving weekend into a memorable autumn beach retreat.

Featuring Thanksgiving Thursday, Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, the Myrtle Beach area provides the perfect place for relaxation and retail-therapy. Here’s your guide for planning the ideal holiday getaway:

Thanksgiving Thursday: Why sit around the same old dinner table talking turkey with distant relatives when you can celebrate with close friends and family at the beach? Compass Cove offers affordable rates on rooms equipped with full kitchens and dining areas for feeding the entire crew, or lots of top restaurants serving traditional holiday dinner for a trouble-free feast. Among our guests’ favorites are Carolina Roadhouse, Chestnut Hill, House of Blues. Tired of the same ol’ same ol’? Mix things up with a seafood buffet or cheeseburger joint at Myrtle Beach’s vast array of restaurants that stay open for Thanksgiving.

Black Friday: The traditional kickoff to the Christmas shopping season has been coming earlier and earlier each year, with many stores and malls choosing to open their doors early Friday morning and even late Thanksgiving night. Whenever you choose to beat the rush, you have plenty of options for shopping in Myrtle Beach. The Market Common, located a little over 1 mile from Compass Cove, features six city blocks of wall-to-wall shops, ranging from national chains to local outlets. Other popular choices are Coastal Grand Mall, Broadway at the Beach, Myrtle Beach Mall, Barefoot Landing and the many big-box centers like Best Buy, Kohl’s, Target, Walmart and the Tanger Outlet Stores. Shop till you drop in your cozy nest at Compass Cove.

Small Business Saturday: While many guests may have those same national chains holding Black Friday specials in their hometowns, Small Business Saturday allows visitors to cash in on deals they can’t get back home. Highlighting locally owned and operated shops, Small Business Saturday provides an opportunity to pick up some one-of-a-kind gifts that aren’t likely to make a repeat appearance under the tree. Local beachwear stores, art galleries, craft shops and git stores will take part in this year’s event, although a full list of participating stores has not yet been released. For the non-shoppers in your party, they can hang back at Compass Cove and enjoy the beach, indoor water amenities, local attractions or kick back in the room and watch football or the annual Christmas parades on TV.

Cyber Monday: For those who can’t make it to Myrtle Beach for Thanksgiving weekend, here’s your chance to make up for it. Although the special deals are currently sealed (we wouldn’t want to spoil the surprise), our annual Cyber Monday sale offers the lowest rates of the year for booking your next Myrtle Beach vacation. Check back for more details or join our Brittain Rewards program for first notification of the specials. Compass Cove’s annual Cyber Monday sale provides the perfect time to save money and give the ultimate gift – a future family retreat to Myrtle Beach.
