My 4th of July Festivities in Myrtle Beach, SC. What are you doing?!?

Real Estate Agent with Myrtle Beach Homes Blog

I have always enjoyed the 4th of July in Myrtle Beach.  There are so many July 4th or Independence Day festivities to do in Myrtle Beach. There are usually parades on the water, fireworks shows all over Myrtle Beach, and so much more to do. However to me, I've always looked at this holiday as a symbol of the beginning of Summer.  Time to enjoy trips to the pool, grilling out, and just having fun.  So, tonight I decided to start the holiday a little early. 

Best Steaks in Myrtle Beach

Since the in-laws are still in town, we threw some ribeye steaks on the grill this evening and decided to kickoff our festivities with a good cookout. Below is the final result.  Let me just tell you, the meal was delicious! 

Best Steaks in Myrtle Beach, SC

So now that we have begun our holiday festivities for the 4th of July in Myrtle Beach, we will continue them tomorrow afternoon by visiting our church for a huge picnic/game night.  Once again, the grills will be on overload as we make hundreds of hot dogs & hamburgers.  There will also be all kinds of games being played including basketball, volleyball, and who knows what else!

Since the heat will probably be in the high 90's here in Myrtle Beach on Saturday, we will hopefully enjoy an afternoon at the pool.  Now that Isabelle has turned 1 year old, she is really starting to enjoy the pool more and more.  She loves being in the water.  Whether she is flying around in her floating tube, or in the arms of mommy & daddy, she is really starting to turn in a big fan of the water.   I am not sure if it is because she really like splashing daddy in the face, or if it is because she knows she is darn cute & always accessorizing her swimsuit. 

I know what some of you are thinking... Jeremy you live in Myrtle Beach!  Yes, the beach is only 10 minutes away from my home, but to be completely honest, I rarely go.  Why?  I hate the sand between my toes.  It drives me crazy!  I know, I am probably weird, but it is ok.  I can live with it.

After the pool, we plan to finish Saturday with dinner out at a nice restaurant and then fireworks somewhere here in Myrtle Beach.  I am not sure yet where we will go.  Hopefully down to the ocean.  Watching a fireworks show on a pier over the ocean is just way cooler than anywhere else.  If you are here in Myrtle Beach, and know of an awesome place to go and enjoy the festivities, please feel free to share them here!

Two more things to cover.  First, don't forget to take a moment and remember those that have made our ability to celebrate Independence Day possible.  Without them, there would be no holiday.  Lastly, while you are celebrating & enjoying the holiday, please do so safely! I don't want to hear any tragic stories on Sunday!

Happy 4th of July everyone!  Make it a memorable one!

Jeremy~ Have you lost your mind?  You live right there at the beach and you hate the sand between your toes? OK!  Let's trade places then!  I LOVE the beach!  Hey!  Your dinner looks great.  Are those edamame beans or lima beans?

Jeremy:  Yum !  Ribeye steaks are my absolute favorite.  Tasty, juicy, and medium rare.  And yikes, that baked potato looks great.  Mushrooms, too.  You really know how to tease a girl... doncha !  Have a Great Fourth !

Great read... I really liked how you weaved food, family and fireworks into the mix.  But the statement that resonated most was remembering those who made sacrifices to secure our freedoms.  Happy holidays from St.  Louis!!

Jeremy - Looks like you have a terrific day planned.  I'm pretty sure that we will head out to Lake Pflugerville to watch the fireworks tomorrow evening, perhaps with a few friends in tow.  I still can't believe how quickly this past year went by.  Isabelle is a cutie!

Grilling is ALWAYS a great thing to do on a holiday weekend, or any time of year for that matter! Love the final result. Love steak. Isabelle looks so much like you, at least her eyes.


I'm going to a friend's house tomorrow night and then another party on Sunday at another's. Great weekend to you all :)

Some have asked, the meal consisted of:

  • Ribeye Steaks seasoned with garlic salt & pepper.
  • Fresh Sauteed mushrooms
  • Baked Russet potatoes with butter & sour cream
  • Edamame

It was all delicious and leftovers were zero. :)

Jeremy, that dinner looks incredible!  I think I'd prefer ribeyes to this boston butt we've been trying to finish off.

I love Isabelle's swim ensemble!  She is a knockout!
