A Perfect Mother's Day Guide to Myrtle Beach

Mother’s Day is getting close — do you have any plans set?


It’s that chance to give moms our affection, recognition, and adoration. None of us would be here without moms! It’s essential to make your plans early so that you don’t sell mom short.


Here’s how to spend that weekend with her on the Grand Strand. Remember, spouses with young kids: This planning is still on you! Make it special.

Brunch Spots

Mom is active and charismatic. But even energetic and charismatic people would love to sleep in — and wake up to an indulgent feast!

  • BLUEBERRY’S GRILL: It’s a laid-back-yet-chic, imaginative restaurant with delicious brunch. If the weather is sunny, take it out on the patio! It is like mom’s food, which is elite.
  • CROISSANTS BISTRO & BAKERY: Their Cinnamon Mini Buns are actually croissants fresh out of the oven. Same with Sunrise Pizza, topped with mornay sauce, scrambled eggs, bacon, and tomatoes.

ADVICE: Cook dinner at the resort. Make it a feast of your mother’s favorite dishes, grab a bottle of wine, and don’t forget dessert.

The Spa

Treat Ma to the spa. If anyone deserves it, this is the lady. Here’s where to pamper her on the Grand Strand.

  • HIBISCUS SPA: Such a serene environment in an excellent facility. Choose from this day spa’s body treatments, facials, massages, and nail services. She’ll also love the gift shop.
  • SPA 33: This is the place mom needs to be for relaxation. She’ll indulge in a day of premium salon services, massages, facials, and more. After she experiences the tranquility garden, she’ll want to return next year.

ADVICE: Don’t let a spa day go to waste. Ensure mom keeps her feet up for the duration. Take care of all the usual tasks for the day.


Ask mom what she’d like to shop for, or, better yet, think of places you know she likes. Has there been a type of shop she’s been wanting to visit?

  • BAREFOOT LANDING: This retail townlet surrounds a tranquil lake. Reserve a day for retail therapy with mom here, and treat her to lunch! She’ll enjoy the boutiques, live music, and waterfront dining.
  • TANGER OUTLETS MYRTLE BEACH HIGHWAY 17: Find designer retail stores with outlet discounts. Shop for deals at Loft, Skechers, Banana Republic, and more. Mom will be impressed!

ADVICE: How about cocktails to celebrate mom? JEM Social for craft cocktails and shared appetizers make for a perfect cap for a fun day.

The Beach

A simple walk on the shore — to see the sunrise, sunset, or any time in between — can release stress. Mom deserves that! You can access this relaxing oasis when you stay at The Strand Resort. Bring a blanket and her current read and let her get lost in her story.
