MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The rain may have washed out any plans people had on Christmas Eve, but on Christmas Day, there will be plenty of attractions and activities.

Although most golf courses shut down for the Christmas holiday, there are a few that do open, offering golfers a chance to take advantage of some long awaited dry weather.

"People are always surprised to find a place to play on the holiday," said Vince Cronkey with Tupelo Bay Golf Center in Garden City. “We answer the phone and say ‘Oh yeah we are open from 7 a.m. till 5 p.m. and they say we'll see you after lunch' that kind of attitude,” added Cronkey.

In addition to Tupelo Bay, the Midway Par 3 course and the Cane Patch Driving Range are also open for business on Christmas. 

If you would like to play somewhere else you can check out two other courses at Myrtlewood Golf Club. 

Technically, the course is always closed for Christmas but as a "gift" to anyone looking to play, the club allows golfers to walk the 36 holes of golf and play for free.

If golf is not your thing, you can still find plenty of fun at Ripley's attractions, including the aquarium. 

The nearby Hollywood Wax Museum will also be open on the holiday. 

Regardless of where you go, businesses are expecting a decent holiday crowd because the rain has washed out everyone's plans for most of the week.

“Having hopefully one nice day out of this week will be a big help to us and to those frustrated golfers who are sitting out there in their condos or their homes just looking to go whack that little white ball,” said Cronky. “Maybe it'll be a good thing where they will have the chance to get out and enjoy golf," he said.

    Several people who live on the side streets of Ocean Blvd. in North Myrtle Beach recently received a letter saying they need to get rid of obstructions in front of their homes. The city says that’s because the space could be used for public parking. Around 30 people came out to the city council meeting on Monday to speak out about the issue.
