Finding time to get away with your love can be hard when you’re both busy, but your relationship will be that much stronger for it. Weekend getaways are a quick and relatively easy way to steal some time together.
On South Carolina’s Atlantic coast lies Myrtle Beach, a 60-mile string of charming beaches that attracts tourists year-round. Known for its celebrity designed golf courses, beachfront boardwalk, and it’s Family Kingdom amusement park, Myrtle Beach is the perfect spot for a couple’s weekend getaway.
If you’re looking for a fun and interesting weekend away at Myrtle Beach, here are five things you’ll need to make the most of it:
A charming place to stay
Myrtle Beach is well-stocked with accommodations for visitors. In fact, Myrtle Beach has an estimated 460 hotels and approximately 89,000 accommodation units in total. All you need to do is decide what vibe you and your partner are looking for. You can stay at the Marriott’s OceanWatch Villas at Grande Dunes for some luxury and rest, or stay in one of the quaint South Beach Cottages for a self-sustained and charming experience. Whatever you choose, you’ll have options in spades when it comes to choosing a place to stay in Myrtle Beach.
Fun things to do
If Myrtle Beach is well-stocked with accommodations, it’s doubly well-stocked with fun and interesting things to do. Finding fun things to do in the city is as easy as opening your door. The coastline city has something for everyone to enjoy: whether that’s live shows, aquariums, or amusement parks. You can take a sightseeing cruise around the bay, go deep-sea fishing, test your balance on a paddleboard tour, or go for a stroll around Brookgreen Gardens. Our tip: choose a few things you’d like to do ahead of time and buy tickets online to avoid long lines.
Some time to relax
Myrtle Beach can be an exciting place where you can easily be on the go all day, but if you’re looking to make the most of your time together as a couple, it’s important to find some time to relax as well. Find something you both enjoy doing and make a day of it. Whether that’s doing the 26-mile Bike The Neck trail that spans from Murrells Inlet to Litchfield Beach, spending a day at a spa together getting massages and sipping champagne at The Awakening Spa at Anderson Ocean Club and Spa, or trying your hand at the games and rides at Family Kingdom Amusement Park.
You can’t feasibly visit Myrtle Beach without seeing the beach! Whether that’s the Myrtle Beach State Park, the Public Beach, or a little cove somewhere along the way, it’s imperative that you spend some time stretched out on the sand. If you’re visiting in the off-season of the weather is cool, go for a stroll to still take in the majesty of the Atlantic.
Some good eats
Your weekend getaway won’t be complete without tucking into some of Myrtle Beach’s local grub. The city has a bit of something for everyone, so there’s no chance you’ll go hungry! We recommend the Simply Southern Smokehouse for a taste of real, southern barbecue.
