Sometimes, there’s no better way to rekindle your romance than to spend some quality time alone together. And, of course, the location and duration of your couple’s getaway are key — it’s hard to beat a vacation that allows you and your loved one to trade the everyday routine for some fun and relaxation in a pleasant, carefree setting.
If this sounds like just what the doctor ordered for you and your sweetheart — and especially if a couple’s retreat is long overdue for the two of you — consider these five solid ways to enjoy one another’s company on a trip to the Grand Strand:
Take a boutique retreat: Where you choose to stay goes a long way toward making your well-deserved vacation the best it can be. And, for a cozy couple’s getaway with a long list of luxurious perks, The Strand Resort on the Myrtle Beach oceanfront definitely fits the bill. The boutique resort’s quiet location on Myrtle Beach’s northern end offers both easy access to the Grand Strand’s top attractions and a relaxing setting where you and your loved one can properly escape all the hustle and bustle. Other on-property amenities include a fitness center, an upscale modern bar and lounge, and a spacious oceanfront pool deck featuring shady cabanas and lush lawns.
Enjoy breakfast with a view: At The Strand Resort, you’ll be able to start each day of your stay with a free hot breakfast together, made all the better with a side of beautiful Atlantic Ocean views. The resort’s on-site Market Restaurant will handle the cooking — so the two of you can relax and enjoy some delicious food, hot coffee and pleasant conversation to begin your stress-free day on the coast.
Take a couple’s walk along the beach: After fueling up at breakfast, take a few steps out The Strand’s back door for a slow, early morning stroll together along the beach. With more than 60 miles of Atlantic Ocean coastline, the Grand Strand offers plenty of serene stretches of beach that are perfect for a barefoot, hand-in-hand lover’s walk through the shoreline’s soft sands — and a particularly peaceful stretch of beach can be found just a short walk north of the resort property.
Do some shopping for your sweetheart at Tanger Outlets: For lovebirds looking to treat their significant other to a shopping spree, Tanger Outlets offers the kind of deals that can really stretch their shopping dollars. This top retail destination has a pair of sprawling locations on the Grand Strand, each featuring more than 75 stores. And, of course, since outlet stores can cut out the typical retail middleman by selling their products directly to consumers, they can offer especially steep discounts. Check out the array of popular national retail names on tap — as well as a lengthy list of mom-and-pop boutique shops — at the Highway 17 outlet center and the Highway 501 outlet center.
End your day with a romantic dinner at New York Prime: Found just across Ocean Boulevard from The Strand, New York Prime steakhouse consistently wows Grand Strand diners with its elegant supper club atmosphere, its impressive wine list, and its menu filled with high-quality, USDA-prime beef and colossal seafood platters — all perfect for a romantic meal together. Top options for hungry steak lovers include the New York Strip, the Porterhouse for Two and the Center Cut Filet. Live Lobster, Stone Crabs and Sea Bass round out the entrée options.
After your romantic day on the Grand Strand, head back to The Strand Resort to relax in your comfortable oceanfront accommodations, treat yourself and your sweetheart to some of the wide-ranging on-property amenities, and rest up so you can do it all over again the next day. Book your Myrtle Beach couple's getaway today — and start looking forward to making some lasting memories with your true love on the Grand Strand.
