Whether you’re new to the area or have been a lifelong beach resident, The Shops At Hilltop is your place to enjoy more than just great shopping at the holidays.
Yes, finding gifts is easy with over 120 shops and restaurants from which to choose. But what makes this center so unique are all the extras for the holidays. Starting on Black Friday and every Saturday through Christmas, bring the family to enjoy a free, old-fashioned, horse-drawn carriage ride! It’s a tiny piece of the past that still entertains and delights generations of families every year. Rides start at noon and run through 3:30 p.m. We recommend arriving a little early as rides are first come, first served and they fill quickly. Grab yourself a hot drink from Roast Rider Coffee & Tea or Starbucks, and wait for your turn to climb aboard. Mark the memory with a photo of your ride, available for a nominal fee.
After your ride, take the kids to find our strolling Santa. Santa walks his way through our (3) centers, armed with a special gift for every child. To help you get into the holiday spirit, listen for live carolling as you discover our center. We invite several, local, area high school choral groups to join on Saturdays through the holiday season to help lift your spirits and fill you with joy.
We also know this is the season to help others. Join us on Sunday, November 25th, 2018, as the team from Z104 radio join us for ‘Stuff the Bus.” Bring new toys to donate to Toys for Tots, and know that your gift will brighten a child’s holiday beyond measure. Look for the big, bright yellow school bus parked in Hilltop East near TASTE and the Hilltop YMCA.
