Myrtle Beach Offers Ideal Playground for the Perfect Date



Romance, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. One man's dream date is another woman's nightmare.

For some, a romantic date is an evening stroll on the beach. For others, it's a night out on the town. And for more sporting couples, it's a day out in nature or on the golf course. Regardless of your preference, Myrtle Beach can accommodate the desires of all kinds of couples.

Perhaps the most romantic spot on the Grand Strand is actually 190 feet above ground on the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel, the centerpiece of the Boardwalk's downtown district. The modernized ferris wheel has become a popular place for suitors to pop the question, and the ocean air isn't the only thing fogging up the windows of the enclosed gondolas.

Entertainment centers like Broadway at the Beach and Market Common are solid choices because of the variety of options. Fine dining, dancing, music and more are within walking distance and the oceanfront hotel is only a short cab ride away.

But for the adventurous, the Grand Strand offers fun for couples in the great outdoors. Take a tandem parasailing ride, explore the artistic beauty of Brookgreen Gardens or take a tour of La Belle Amie Vineyard. Myrtle Beach has something to offer for couples of all tastes.
