This is the time of year for ghosts and goblins and you’re sure to discover they’re even at the beach. Children will be out trick or treating and we caution you to be careful if you’re driving around. Children should be dressed in bright colors and have reflective tape added to their costumes to ensure their safety. Wearing a headlamp and/or carrying a flashlight is a good idea, too. It’s a fact that children traveling in groups are far safer than going out alone or with just one other.

North Myrtle Beach condosIf your family is staying in our North Myrtle Beach condos during this time, we encourage you to dress the kids up and take them out.

Not far from our North Myrtle Beach condos are the following places where special events are being held for the kids.
