Myrtle Beach Attractions for Couples09/05/2013
Now that the summer has passed and the crowds are gone, what would be a better time to enjoy a relaxing and romantic venture to the beach? The children are gone and the weather is still ideal for enjoying the beach. Also, although Myrtle Beach is known primarily for their family friendly attractions, it also offers an eclectic variety of things to do for couples. Check out our list of the top Myrtle Beach attractions for couples and let us know what you think!
Myrtle Beach Boardwalk
The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is home to the famous Myrtle Beach SkyWheel, a ferris wheel-esque carnival ride that takes guests soaring over 20 feet into the air! After you have enjoyed the best views of the beach, stroll down the newly renovated oceanfront boardwalk and head to the Second Avenue Pier, one of the oldest piers in the area. Head out almost 1000 feet into the Atlantic or enjoy a scenic dinner at the restaurant – we promise you won’t be disappointed.
Whether you are a pro or are looking for a little friendly competition, Myrtle Beach is a great place for golfers of all levels. Spend the day together on the golf course enjoying the ideal Myrtle Beach weather on one of the area’s over 100 courses. For something a little more low key, try an evening of putt-putt at a local course. We promise they won’t be hard to find!
Located south of Myrtle Beach in Murrells Inlet, this sculpture garden is open year round and offers professionally landscaped gardens with seasonal blooms, handcrafted art, and an atmosphere that cannot be beat! They also host a variety of events throughout the year – from concerts to their famous Night of 1000 Candles – that you won’t want to miss!
New to the area, the Market Common is a great place to enjoy an evening stroll and a romantic dinner. Full of upscale shopping and dining, this outdoor venue gives visitors a unique urban village feel that can’t be found anywhere else. Popular restaurants include P.F. Changs, Divine Prime, and Nacho Hippo.
Kick back and enjoy a few laughs at one of the many comedy clubs in the area. You can find everything from stand up to improv and everything in between. Come early and grab a bite to eat or simply enjoy a few cocktails during the show. Comedy clubs in the area include Carolina Comedy Club, Comedy Cabana, and Carolina Improv.
Reconnect with your inner child at Frank Theaters in Murrells Inlet. This indoor facility has it all! Get cozy and watch that movie that you have been dying to see or book a bowling lane for a little friendly competition. You can also head to the arcade to play a variety of classic games or stop by the bar for drinks. In addition, Franks has a full menu which can be enjoyed anywhere in the facility.
