    The gardens of this popular Myrtle Beach attraction come to life amid the soft glow of more than 4,500 hand-lit candles and countless sparkling lights from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. Walk the paths with a warm cup of cider, listening to the sounds of holiday music.

    Each night, an 80-foot fir tree, decorated with 70,000 lights, will be lighted in ceremonial fashion at 6:15 p.m.
