I'm Dreaming of a Beach Christmas!


Coastal Christmas Events

We have put together this list of Coastal Christmas Events, all located in beach areas, and many of which include seaside themes or activities. If you love a Christmas Light Boat Parade, or seeing Santa arrive in the harbor by boat is on your seasonal to-do list, then you need to take a look through these festivities. You're sure to find something special to kick off your holiday season!


South Carolina


The Holiday Festival of Lights, Charleston's most popular holiday event, usually starts in mid-November and runs through January 1. The highlight of the festival is the three mile driving tour through James Island County Park to view more than two million beautiful holiday lights. Other family friendly activities include a walking trail, gift shops, Santa's Sweet Shoppe, train rides, and more.
