Before you know it, Valentine’s Day will be here.
Don’t be that guy hoping the corner drugstore has chocolate candy hearts on Feb. 14. At 6 p.m. No … think ahead. If you really want to make an impression, plan a romantic getaway for two in Myrtle Beach. Now that’s amore.
It’s easy to add a little romance to a Myrtle Beach trip, anyway – it’s as simple as a walk on the beach, really.
But you don’t want to go for the bare minimum, do you? We’ll show you how it’s done in this post. Whether it’s your first romantic jaunt together, or you’ve been in love for decades, we know you’ll enjoy these loving touches to a terrific trip.
How to Take a Romantic Getaway in Myrtle Beach
Book a Tour With Enchanted Sailing Charters
What an unbelievable experience you’d have with your loved one. The captains will ensure you have an enchanting trip. They know the Little River so well, and you’ll learn a bit on the tour, too. You’ll feel safe and welcome with Enchanted Sailing Charters out on the sea.
Sailing in Myrtle Beach even might become the highlight of your entire trip.
Take to The Outdoors
With two state parks in the area, you have plenty of options for a bit of nature together. Myrtle Beach State Park and Huntington Beach State Park offer bike trails and hiking. Brookgreen Gardens epitomizes romance in its gorgeous botanical gardens and sculptures.
For the adventurous pair: How about a shot at parasailing at Downwind Sails in Myrtle Beach?
Wine Tasting at Coastal Wine Boutique & Tasting Room
Take a nice, peaceful retreat and sample some marvelous wines. Their knowledgeable staff will guide you to your best choices in this unique place. From the moment you walk in, you’ll notice the fabulous vibe – and that’s before you even get to taste some of their incredible offerings.
Especially if you’re a fan of dry wines, you’ll enjoy this experience.
Dinner at New York Prime
Friendly staff, incredible ambiance. That’s just the start. Begin with oysters on the half shell or New York Prime’s classic shellfish bisque. We recommend the porterhouse for two. Dining at New York Prime is a fantastic experience any time of year – but Valentine’s Day is special.
Honestly – the cheesy mashed potatoes are pretty memorable, too.
Dessert at Strong Waters Craft Cocktails and Kitchen
Take your romantic date somewhere sweet: Strong Waters. With a cozy atmosphere, top-notch drinks, and superlative service, it’s a perfect next step. And the desserts. Wow, the desserts. Bread pudding, creme brule, ricotta cheesecake, and strawberry shortcake.
Strong Waters is known for serving favorites with a twist, and dessert is no exception.
Shopping at Broadway at The Beach
Relax and peruse the many awesome stores at Broadway at the Beach. Plus, it’s a chance to pick up a special gift for your sweetheart while you’re shopping together. Look at classic vintage gifts at Vintage House. Pick out something for your honey at Savannah Bee Company.
There’s also a Victoria’s Secret on site. We’re not sayin’, we’re just sayin’.
Take a Walk on The Beach
Want to do this right? Time the walk at sunset. It might be chilly in February, but if it’s mild, don’t be afraid to take off your shoes and feel the sand on your feet, if not the waves. Take a picture together on the beach to commemorate a wonderful day spent together.
Bring a towel to sit on so you can get lost in the stars – or each other.
