FOR THE SPA TREATMENT

Sure, a hot spa treatment is great for opening pores and helping the body fend off toxins. But when you go with friends, it’s a different experience.

Cinzia Spa at North Beach

It’s more than a spa – it’s a wellness center. This sanctuary is for deep rest, healing, and nurturing of body, mind and soul. Explore everything from day packages to an express menu. You’ll find the right treatment to take your group away for a day.

FOR FUN OUTDOORS

A day of fun on your favorite beach ever never hurt any girl – so long as someone brings the sunscreen. On the Grand Strand, you have some excellent choices.

Myrtle Beach

The obvious choice. It’s right in the middle of it all, right on the boardwalk, with a sea breeze blowing in your hair. Spread your beach towels. Bring your big hats and TBR books, and relax on this iconic beach together.

FOR RETAIL THERAPY

Shopping and spending to improve one’s mood. That sounds so negative. We prefer, “browsing and buying to build better bonds.”

Broadway at the Beach

Shops and restaurants abound in this fun shopping center. You could spend a day here, with fashion finds and interesting indulgences. Treat yourself to beeswax hand cream at Savannah Bee Comany. Grab lunch at Senor Frog’s, and look for unique finds in the Southern Living Store. Then to the Grumpy Monk for live music, a spicy tuna roll, and martinis

FOR A TASTE OF VINO

Friendships are like a fine wine; they get better with time. Take a tour at a local vineyard and sample some of the best wine around.

Duplin Winery

Sweet wines, a patio, and live music. Not any ordinary sweet wines – Carolina sweet wines that made Duplin famous. Take a relaxing, informative tour and tasting from an expert staff that loves its craft. Plus, you can take home a bottle (or two) of your favorite.

FOR A MEMORABLE DINNER

Myrtle Beach made a name for itself with calabash-style seafood. That’s still a strong play here, but The Grand Strand is now home to a whole new world of delicious cuisines.

Aspen Grille

It’s classy, colorful, and refined – like you and your crew. This place is why you packed the little black dress. You’ll find exceptional service and a menu unparalleled. Start with domestic golden fried calamari and a hand-crafted Aspen Manhattan. See where the evening goes.

FOR DRINKS

If you’ve packed a day full of fun or whiled the hours away poolside, cocktail hour is always a great choice. It’ll give you a chance to catch up with your friends.

The Strand Bar

A spot for mixed drinks and great conversation is closer than you think. The Strand Bar is right on site at The Strand Resort. Meet for a cocktail on the first floor, and enjoy window views of the beach. It’s both opulent and informal, for top-shelf liquors, handcrafted beers and more.
