Some sound advice: Celebrate big on Valentine’s Day this year!


Your favorite vacation destination is a beautiful place to start. Even in the off-season, the weather is mild and there’s plenty of fun on tap. It’s a time for romance, on the cusp of spring, and lots of other reasons to celebrate.


Here are some ideas for making this Valentine’s Day one to remember.

1. Shopping at Market Common


Find a thoughtful gift or two for each other in the boutique shops at Market Common. Start your excursion with a charming breakfast at Crepe Creation Cafe. Then choose something for your space at Pottery Barn.


TRY THIS: Race against the clock in the Escape Vault! Choose a mild adventure (Jumanji Jungle) or something super scary (Hannibal). Good luck!


2. Dinner at New York Prime


If you think she’s cute, show it by treating her to a fantastic dining experience and the most delicious steak dinner in town! You’ll make this an unforgettable Valentine’s, with incredible ambiance and service.


TRY THIS: Start by sharing Baked Shrimp, then the Porterhouse For Two. Their sea bass is also excellent. Pack the right clothes!

3. Catch a show at the Carolina Opry


The Grand Strand offers plenty of potential in the entertainment category. The area’s talent is on display in fantastic shows such as Gaelic Storm, Time Warp, The Guess Who, and more. Not a shabby seat in the house!
