Date night: It’s fun enough in your hometown, but how about one on the Grand Strand?
There’s something for every type of couple here, from the thrilling to the chilling. Want a touch of romance to your evening? Maybe some adventure, or a culinary journey for two?
Myrtle Beach has it all.
FOR THE ROMANTIC
How about drinks, dinner, and a walk on the beach? (Cue the romantic music).
Take that special someone up on the roof at RipTydz Oceanfront Grille & Rooftop Bar. Enjoy live music and order two Everything Under The Sun cocktails. Go fantastically classy, with a glass or two of Duckhorn Vineyards red at Aspen Grille. Or some rockabilly and two Slippery Bananas in a historic Grand Strand venue at The Bowery.
It’s hard to outdo fondue. How about an out-of-this-world four-course dinner for two at Melting Pot? A casual yet outstanding dining experience at Cafe Old Vienna could be just the thing. We recommend Pork Cordon-Blue and the Styria Plate. Hook & Barrel is a cool spot, and you’ll see right away why it’s so popular. The Smoked Shrimp and Grits and Filet Mignon will give you both something to talk about on your walk on the beach …
Walk on the Beach
Sunset is the right time. Get down there right before the sun goes down, and let it happen while you’re there. Keep the romance going after sundown. Go for the seclusion near the pier or under the neon lights of SkyWheel. Bring a blanket and stay awhile under the stars.
FOR THE ADVENTURER
You’re on the Grand Strand, not the Just So-So Strand, after all.
SkyWheel Myrtle Beach is an observation tower and a thrill ride. You’ll get an amazing view of Myrtle Beach and the ocean. Buy an online pass to skip the line, or use that time to get to know that sweetie you’re with better. For a next-level thrill, hit the Free Fall Thrill Park nearby for a slingshot ride and more.
For the competitive couple, there are plenty of go-kart options around. Tap into your inner kid with laps at The Track. You can race and more at Broadway Grand Prix — we recommend getting the wristbands and making a day of it!
Want to make an incredible first impression? A sunset helicopter ride would be perfect. Helicopter Adventures offers an unbelievable ride over the city and ocean. Choose from nine tours, from nature lovers to thrill-seekers, with Oceanfront Helicopters.
Dinner on the boardwalk can be thrilling, too. Pier 14 Restaurant & Lounge offers astounding views and a great vibe. The Carolina Clam Chowder and Salmon BLT are amazing. After you walk off SkyWheel, drop into LandShark Bar & Grill for Fish Tacos and BBQ Ribs.
FOR THE FOODIE
A true foodie can trek to Myrtle Beach and spend so much time in restaurants they scarcely see the ocean.
Cocktails and Appetizers
Strong Waters Craft Cocktails and Kitchen will transport you to the prohibition era. Visit this great little bar to split a Chef’s Board and Lobster Egg Roll. Choose a Hair of the Dog cocktail and From Another Time boilermaker, too. For a spacious patio and ocean views, try Bummz Beach Cafe. It’s a fun spot to share Onion Straws or Mozzarella Sticks. Sample unique drinks such as Red Bull Tropical Tequila and Orange Crush.
Rioz Brazilian Steakhouse is the spot for an upscale, unforgettable experience. Try the Full Rodrizio, and leave room for dessert if that’s even possible. You’ll love the ambiance and wraparound bar at Carolina Roadhouse, too. This will likely be the best food you’ve had in a long time. Especially if you indulge in the Fried Seafood Platter or Loaded Chicken Albuquerque.
For the old-fashioned sweets at Kilwin’s, for the best ice cream and town and great service to match. You could each get a flavor, such as Blue Moon and Cappuccino Chocolate Chip, and share. Splitting a banana split is the most romantic thing ever (or at least top 5!). You can get the best one at Kirk’s Ice Cream Parlor, at 6101 North Kings Highway.
