If you’re seeking some pure holiday magic this year, then head to Murrells Inlet to stroll through the enchanting Christmas lights at Brookgreen Gardens. Taking place on select nights towards the end of November through January 1, 2023, Nights of a Thousand Candles is simply stunning. It’s been called the “Best Christmas lights in South Carolina” by Travel+Leisure Magazine – but it’s quite possibly the best in the entire southeast, even.

Set among the formal sculpture gardens on a 1700s plantation, the annual exhibit attracts scores of locals and visitors alike each holiday season, who enjoy the most breathtaking experience.
The garden known as Live Oak Alley is transformed into a rainforest of holiday lights that are extraordinary.
Additionally, the venue also lights 2,800 candles every afternoon – by hand. Most of them are floating within the reflection pools of the many gardens. This really adds a special touch with a different type of light for creating a unique Christmas display.
A limited number of tickets will be sold, so be sure to secure yours soon to enjoy the Brookgreen Gardens Christmas festivities.
Tickets for this year’s event are $30 for members and $35 for non-members. The ticket prices for children are less, $14 for members and $17 for non-members.

Nights of a Thousand Candles takes place rain or shine. Obviously, if it’s raining the candles won’t be lit. There is also entertainment nightly and you can eat dinner at Harvest Restaurant, located by the Rainey Galleries, with a reservation. Learn more about these wonderful lights at Brookgreen Gardens that’s pure holiday magic and go ahead and get your tickets before they sell out by visiting the official Brookgreen Gardens website.

Great winter camping is available across the street at Huntington Beach State Park, 14 miles away at Myrtle Beach State Park, or at numerous private campgrounds in the area such as Ocean Lakes Family Campground and Pirateland Family Camping Resort.

Brookgreen Gardens is located at 1931 Brookgreen Garden Dr, Murrells Inlet, SC 29576.
