The time is getting close for the “oooohhh’s” and “aaahhhhhhh’s!” Â It is hard to escape the cracks, bangs and pows when you head to Myrtle Beach for your Fourth of July vacation. Â If you are wondering who is having a fireworks display this year, look no further! Â Here is a quick list of the when’s and where’s for July 4, 2011 fireworks in Myrtle Beach, SC!
1) North Myrtle Beach, Cherry Grove Pier
Starts Around 9:30 p.m. – This is the 19th annual fireworks display. The Cherry Grove Pier is located directly in front of Prince Resort in North Myrtle Beach, located at 3500 North Ocean Blvd in North Myrtle Beach. If you are staying at Prince Resort or Pier Watch, you are set! No need to battle the traffic.
2) North Myrtle Beach, Barefoot Landing
Starts Around 10:15 p.m. – Barefoot Landing has fireworks EVERY Monday, and the July 4 is no different! Well, except for an added arsenal of bigger and louder fireworks this time. Barefoot Landing is located atÂ 4898 Highway 17 South in North Myrtle Beach.
3) Myrtle Beach, 2nd Avenue Pier
Starts Around 9:30 p.m. – Huge Booms await at the 2nd Avenue Pier in Myrtle Beach. Located…. well… on 2nd Avenue North in the heart of Myrtle Beach. Our guests staying in Bay View Resort or Oceans One, or even Club Regency are going to have a great view!
4) Myrtle Beach, Broadway at the Beach
Starts Around 10 p.m. – Like Barefoot Landing, Broadway at the Beach has regular fireworks displays as well, but again, this July 4 will be one to remember!
5) Surfside Beach, Surfside Pier

Fair warning to all who want to drive to these locations. The traffic will be VERY busy, especially on the 2nd Avenue in Myrtle Beach. Â The Cherry Grove Pier only has one main road in and out too, so factor in traffic during your commute. Just a fair warning that you should get to the area early and secure your parking spot. Â Head to the beach and relax. There will be plenty of people setting off fireworks on the beach as well. Also, don’t forget about the tide that night either. If you park your sandy spot Â close to the water, chances are, you might have to relocate! Here is the tide schedule for July 4 from the National Ocean Service.
Low 4:23 a.m. Â – Â High 10:23 AM
Low 4:31 PM Â – Â Â High 10:34 PM
We wish everyone a safe an happy July 4, 2011!
