Greetings from Avista Resort!

We are all glad to see warmer air and water temperatures here in North Myrtle Beach! Spring truly is a special time here as the flowers are blooming, the fish are biting, and there's lost of fun parades, events, and festivals to enjoy!

St. Patrick's Day Celebration

March welcomed the return of the popular North Myrtle Beach St. Patrick's Day Parade! Over 100 floats and groups entertained everyone and the Main St. Festival delivered great times, food, crafts, and entertainment. This year was extra special for our guests as the parade route passed directly in front of the Avista for the first time!

A "Hoppin'-Good" Time!

Easter at Avista Resort was a "hoppin'-good" time! The weekend kicked off with fun activities including a flashlight Easter egg hunt on the beach, a scavenger hunt, and a poolside movie. On Easter Sunday, guests enjoyed a fabulous brunch buffet and the Easter Bunny delivered baskets, high-five's, and joy to all!

Over the Edge

The Over the Edge Fundraiser is scheduled to be hosted at Avista Resort on Saturday, May 7, 2022. Over the Edge is a once-in-a-lifetime event for many and features brave and generous people rappelling from the roof of the resort. These thrill-seekers, do-gooders, and community heroes will get gorgeous views of the ocean as they descend 17 stories and 164 feet down the north side of Avista.

The Over the Edge staff will be on hand and have hosted over 250 events. This fun event is provided by New Directions, a local organization that helps provide shelter, food, showers and services to the homeless. This wonderful group was established in 2013 and has helped over 7,000 people, 400 families, provided 425,000 nights of shelter, and over 440,000 meals.
