Romantic Things to do in Myrtle Beach

A romantic escape to North Myrtle Beach is more than enjoying long walks on a moonlit beach or lounging poolside on an oceanfront sundeck. Stroll hand-in-hand through art galleries and museums. Dance the night away after taking shag lessons in North Myrtle Beach, the birthplace of shag. Romantic opportunities are seemingly endless.

Is there a more romantic postcard setting than horseback riding on the beach? Inlet Point Plantation Stables in Cherry Grove offers equestrian adventures in a coastal paradise. Novice and experienced riders alike will love the North Myrtle Beach trails that meander through an old plantation and include a private island beach.

Sample exquisite private label wines and gourmet foods at La Belle Amie Vineyard in North Myrtle Beach during your romantic escape. Then choose your own bottle of wine that perfectly accompanies the scrumptious picnic you brought along to lovingly share on the vineyard’s grounds—property that has been in the Bellamy family since the 1800s. Bellamy ancestors first made wine in the south of France and today the family tradition continues in South Carolina, on property that was part of a former tobacco plantation.

Huffman Helicopters in Myrtle Beach indulges couples with a specially-chartered, “Lights of the Grand Strand” night flight. Admire your romantic vacation destination from an aerial view, where lights twinkle into the wee morning hours, and marvel at the Atlantic Ocean’s vastness from high above the crashing waves and ebbing tide.

Promenade hand-in-hand among the lush landscape at Brookgreen Gardens, a national historic landmark where the world’s largest collection of American sculpture is beautifully displayed among several thousand acres of native plants and animals. Guided walking tours, creek excursions and Trekker rides through three ecosystems are offered at this nationally known attraction that has been featured in Southern Living magazine.

Play together all day at Huntington Beach State Park, an oceanfront oasis of hiking trails, shaded picnic spots and wooden observation decks. The freshwater lagoon, salt marsh, Atlantic Ocean and maritime forest offer a myriad of bird watching opportunities and the three miles of white, sandy beaches lead to the rocky jetty of Murrells Inlet where fishing is popular. Perhaps the most romantic site at Huntington Beach State Park is Atalaya, the oceanfront, Spanish-inspired castle that Archer Milton Huntington built for his wife, Anna Hyatt Huntington, world-renowned sculptress whose works are displayed at Brookgreen Gardens, their former home.

Experience North Myrtle Beach’s softer side by exploring the romantic aspects of the popular seaside resort town. Popular attractions and oceanfront accommodations throughout the Grand Strand cater to couples enjoying a romantic retreat.

    I wish to visit Myrtle Beach in June for my 20th birthday but haven’t had the experience before. What exactly are some really fun things you can do throughout your day, and romantic things you can do during the night with my fiance?

    If age is dependent on which there’s to complete, then he’s 23 and I’m going to be 20.

    Thanks!! 🙂
