Retreat to Nature

The city of Myrtle Beach is next to two state parks, the Huntington Beach State Park and Myrtle Beach State Park. These beautiful parks contain hundreds of acres of parkland, with a range of landscapes from maritime forest to sand dunes. Walk with your sweetheart down one of the many trails and enjoy the serenity of nature. At Huntington Beach State Park, you can visit the Environmental Education Center and see the loggerhead turtles and other endangered marine creatures.

Myrtle Beach Travel

Walk Along the Beach

The Grand Strand is the perfect place for a seaside stroll. It contains more than 60 miles of white sand beaches. However, if you are visiting during the summertime, keep in mind that the beaches can get crowded. An alternative option that will be further away from the crowds is Little River on the Intracoastal Waterway, a quiet beach filled with miles of dunes. You can also take a 30-minute drive up the coastline to Litchfield Beach, an isolated and pristine spot.

Dine on a Sunset Cruise

What could be more romantic than cruising on an old-fashioned riverboat, enjoying some fine cuisine while watching the sunset and listening to live music? The Great American Riverboat Company offers a sunset dinner cruise that will take you and your sweetheart on an unforgettable journey down the Intracoastal Waterway. Another option is to take a power catamaran that will head out into the Atlantic to watch the sunset from the open water.

Kiss at the Top of the SkyWheel

The Myrtle Beach SkyWheel is the highest Ferris Wheel in the East Coast, with a total height of 200 feet. As you ride to the top in the gondola car with your special someone, you can enjoy the amazing views over the coastline, the ocean and the city. For a special experience, go up the SkyWheel at night so you can see all of the lights of the city.

These are just some ideas of what to do during your romantic getaway to Myrtle Beach with your special someone.
