Celebrate the 4th in Myrtle Beach - See Our Top Picks for Fireworks!

Here Are Our Top 7 Picks for Fireworks and Where to Park for Them!

There's no need to wonder about where are the best fireworks in the Myrtle Beach.  We have you covered.  And parking?  We know the best places to park.  We guarantee you'll find your fill of fireworks all along the beaches on the night of the 4th, and there are some that will be launching fireworks throughout the summer.  We’ve listed the most prominent firework displays and some useful tips for parking close to them.

General Parking Tips

Carpool: the fewer cars you have to worry about finding a space for, the better.

Arrive early: you want to see the greatest firework displays in America and so do all your neighbors.  They're staking their claim for a parking spot as early as they can and that means you should too.  Many of these displays have great shopping and entertainment options nearby that can keep you occupied for several hours before the big event.

Bring cash and change: you never know where you’ll find your perfect spot.  After driving around looking for a while, you may see the treasure at the end of the rainbow when you notice a metered spot or a parking garage.  You’ll want the right kind of money to be able to take advantage of the spot you've found.

Often, you can pay for metered parking over the phone: Surfside Beach offers this feature on all paid parking locations.  Click here for detailed instructions on how to do that.  Click here for details on Myrtle Beach Parking Meter Options.
