4th of July Celebration
Prince Resort kicked off its annual 4th of July celebration with patriotic children's activities. Kids of all ages gathered to craft handprint flag t-shirts, confetti cannons, and slime.
The celebration continued into the afternoon with a cornhole tournament on the lawn, BINGO, sack races, a 4th of July scavenger hunt, water balloon games, and live music at the ocean front pool.
The resort held its annual Patriotic Dinner at onsite 3500 Ocean Grill. The buffet dinner included BBQ pulled pork, herb-roasted chicken quarter, fried shrimp, fresh corn on the cob, baked beans, hushpuppies with honey butter, vegetable medley, potato salad, dinner rolls and banana pudding!
The patriotic celebration concluded as the annual fireworks show was set off from the Cherry Grove Pier. Guests enjoyed a 30-minute fireworks display that could be seen from miles away.
Read what our guests had to say about the Independence Day celebration!
"The views are incredible and watching fireworks just outside the window was so exciting for my kids. It feels like you are closer to the show being almost at eye level. The reflections of the fireworks in the water is just stunning. No firework show can surpass what we saw." - Robert K.
"Location and staff made for an enjoyable holiday stay. The July 4th buffet was very good and well organized. This was an Independence Day to be remembered." - Kenneth C.

Guest Comments "Location allows you to still enjoy all Myrtle Beach has to offer, but far enough away from the craziness to award you a good night's sleep after a long day at the beach. Peacefully quiet when you want it to be!"
Lee P., 7/10/19 after a 7-night stay
"My family and I have stayed at the Prince about 5 or 6 times. We love it here and my great nephew never wants to leave when our time is up. The cleaning staff is very friendly, courteous, and helpful with anything you may need. The rooms are very clean, and comfortable and very quiet. We shall return soon!"
