Not all date nights are chocolate hearts and teddy bears.
Some are toes-in-the-sand and SkyWheel. Myrtle Beach provides the ideal setting for whatever version of romance you seek. We’ve found three that work well, with plenty of fun things to do.
Whether you’re on a couples’ getaway or meet someone new here, try one of these for a great time.
It’s good for you to build date nights into your relationships, no matter what stage you’re in. It can help build better communication, and up the affection and gratitude for each other. You’ll want to spend more time together, and discover interests without distractions.
There’s no bad time for a beach date (except during a rainstorm!) Sunset is perfect … plan to arrive around 20 minutes before the sun sets. The sun will set over the land on the Grand Strand. But the golden hour light is spectacular (and looks awesome from the beach.)
Put together a picnic. Pack with crackers and cheese, hummus, drinks, and a Bluetooth speaker for music. Bring a big beach blanket and a couple of pillows to make it comfortable.
Don’t forget the sunscreen — if you’re good like that, you can help each other apply it.
PRO TIP: It’s fun to stay on the blanket and people-watch on Myrtle Beach. The Grand Strand attracts all kinds!
Dates by daylight can be fun. Start out with a trip to a beachwear store and get matching T-shirts, boogie boards, or beach towels. Lounge on the beach with your new gear and relax!
Head to Drunken Jack’s for drinks and appetizers, such as Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Dip and Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail. You’ll enjoy a view of the famous Goat Island together, too.
Wrap up your afternoon with a penguin encounter at Ripley’s Aquarium. And take home a penguin painting you helped make.
PRO TIP: There’s an extension of the Pro Football Hall of Fame here, in Broadway at the Beach. That’d make a fun stop, wouldn’t it?
Take your significant other (or new interest!) somewhere you’re sure to love: The Melting Pot. You’ll find a great atmosphere and a dining experience like no other. It’s the perfect spot for a classy-yet-casual meal.
Hit the dance floor at Pulse Ultra Club (2701 South Kings Highway (843) 315-0019). It’s fun every time, with friendly bartenders and great music.
Cap the evening with appetizers such as Bavarian Pretzels at Gordon Biersch.
PRO TIP: Consider dinner at Carolina Roadhouse, dancing at 3001 NIGHTLIFE, and appetizers at Soho Steak & Seafood Sushi Bar.
Friendly staff and a balcony with a gorgeous view from your room await. And the small kitchen invites you to make a meal together and stay in for an evening at The Strand. Check availability and peruse room types, then make plans to escape to The Strand today.
