Most people visit the Grand Strand for summer fun in the sun and surf, and world-class entertainment, dining, and attractions for vacationers to enjoy. Plus, let’s not forget about the golf — we are the Golf Capital of the World, after all.
But what if we told you the Grand Strand was also the perfect destination for couples? With 60 miles of beautiful, sandy beaches stretching from Little River to Georgetown, what could be more romantic than a visit to the Grand Strand for Valentine’s Day?
The off-season is a wonderful time to plan a trip for two to the Myrtle Beach area. With hardly a tourist in sight, you’ll practically have the beach all to yourselves, and you’ll never need to make a reservation at your favorite seafood restaurant. Surprise your sweetheart with a getaway to remember this winter, and visit one these romantic spots on the Grand Strand during your stay.
#1 The Beach: If you’ve ever seen the 1953 Academy Award winner for Best Picture, From Here To Eternity, you know just how romantic the beach can be. In perhaps the most epic love scene ever caught on film, the leading man and lady share a passionate kiss on a sandy beach, while waves crash over them. And while that might be too steamy to actually recreate in public, you could certainly take an evening stroll on the sand, hand in hand with your love, collecting seashells while you dip your toes in the water.
#2 The SkyWheel: Take an evening spin with your Valentine on the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel, the centerpiece of the 1.2 mile-long Oceanfront Boardwalk and Promenade in Myrtle Beach. Cuddle in one of the glass-enclosed, climate-controlled gondolas, and enjoy breathtaking views of the ocean as you soar 190 feet above ground. Each flight is three revolutions, which lasts about 10 minutes. The SkyWheel is especially romantic after dark, when it lights up the sky. If you want to make the experience even more magical, skip the line, and soar in an upgraded gondola with leather seats and glass floors, on a VIP flight.
#3 La Belle Amie Vineyard: Home of the Twisted Sisters brand, La Belle Amie Vineyard in Little River is located just minutes from North Myrtle Beach. This operating vineyard is open to the public, and offers wine tastings, live music, and special events, including a Valentines Bonfire on February 17th, 2018. Tour the scenic property with your sweetie, sit on the deck, and savor a glass of uniquely southern wine made from Muscadine grapes grown at the vineyard.
