Enjoy the Ultimate Date Night on the Grand Strand

When you’re looking to impress your special someone with a couple’s getaway, few vacation destinations can top the romantic setting offered on the Myrtle Beach area’s beautiful stretch of the Carolina coast. After all, the beach offers some of the most sought-after ingredients for a love-friendly atmosphere — the ocean’s striking blue waters, the soothing sounds of waves crashing along the shoreline, the feel of soft sand between your toes, etc. — and the Grand Strand provides a range of popular attractions for you and your sweetheart to enjoy.

During your next couple’s retreat to the Myrtle Beach area, consider adding these attractions to your itinerary to create the perfect date night:

Limo service from Platinum Limousine: Start the evening off with a special indulgence — limousine service so that neither of you have to worry about driving and can ride in VIP style. With Platinum Limousine, your friendly and professional chauffer will pick you up in your choice of vehicle from a fleet that includes super stretch limos, H2 Hummer ultra stretch limos, corporate GMC Yukon XLs and more. Learn more at platlimos.com.

A wine tasting at Duplin Winery: Located adjacent to North Myrtle Beach shopping/dining/entertainment hot spot Barefoot Landing, this winery serves up America’s favorite muscadine wine, along with a full line of award-winning, Carolina-produced reds, whites, sparkling wines, blushes, specialty wines and more. Guests visiting this location sample a range of wine varieties, observe the wine-bottling process and shop in the winery’s retail store for wine accessories, Duplin gourmet food items and more. To learn more, visit duplinwinery.com.

Dinner at 21 Main: Treat your sweetheart to a romantic meal at 21 Main Prime Steakhouse, where the menu boasts an impressive lineup of USDA Prime and specialty cuts of meat and fresh seafood, all served in an elegant setting. Start your dinner with the Carolina Crab Cakes or Polenta & Leek Fries, then move on to delicious entrees such as the 21 Main Scallops with confit potatoes, corn and truffle puree, roasted patty pan squash, bacon and Vidalia onion jam, or the  “88” Surf & Turf, which features an 8-ounce filet mignon and an 8-ounce lobster tail served with whipped potatoes and asparagus. A long list of other grilled, surf & turf, and raw bar options is also available.

A ride on the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel: Take your love to new heights with a ride on the iconic Myrtle Beach SkyWheel. You’ll get a bird’s-eye view of the Boardwalk, the coastline, the ocean and downtown Myrtle Beach from aboard one of the 187-foot-tall Ferris wheel’s 42 glass-enclosed, climate-controlled gondolas. And, while each gondola has room for up to six passengers, your romantic ride won’t be spoiled by strangers — a private flight is assured for all boarding parties. The ride will take you for three revolutions, giving you about 10 minutes to enjoy Myrtle Beach’s beauty from your romantic elevated viewpoint.

Dessert at Hook & Barrel: This upscale eatery in the exclusive Dunes section of Myrtle Beach serves up some serious flavor, with its fresh seafood taking center stage. But you’ll be there for the restaurant’s Sweets menu, which includes decadent delights like Key Lime Pie topped with brûléed meringue, Banana Profiteroles featuring brûléed banana, vanilla bean ice cream, choux pastry and hot chocolate ganache, and the Chocolate Tower with layers of flourless chocolate torte, chocolate cheesecake and chocolate mousse, all accompanied by semi-sweet chocolate ganache. Check out the full dessert menu at hookandbarrelrestaurant.com.
