Top 10 Romantic Things To Do in Myrtle Beach

  By  Nora Battle

My mother-in-law has agreed to keep my boys overnight this weekend, so my husband and I are planning a long overdue date night! As I was making plans for our Saturday night out, I started thinking about all the romantic things there are to do in the Myrtle Beach area. From long beach walks to dinner out together, there is so much for couples to enjoy along the beautiful Grand Strand. Here is a quick list of a few of my favorite romantic things to do:

local's fav Hook & Barrel
1. Hook & Barrel

This Myrtle Beach-based restaurants is one of our favorites. We always find delicious sustainable seafood dishes and local produce on the menu, and the wine list is equally great. One of the best things about dining here is enjoying a cocktail on the wraparound porch before your meal and heading down to the beach (just a couple blocks away!) for a walk after dinner.

2. Historic Downtown Conway

This quaint rivertown is home to a few amazing restaurants along with the Theatre of the Republic, one of the Grand Strand’s best community theatres. Dinner and show in the picturesque downtown area makes for a memorable night out, especially around the holiday season when Main Street is decked out in Christmas decorations.

local's fav Murrells Inlet MarshWalk
4. Murrells Inlet Marshwalk

The seafood capital of South Carolina, Murrells Inlet is a fishing village situated along the picturesque marsh of the lowcountry. We especially enjoy our time along the MarshWalk, where you can find amazing seafood, cold drinks and live music nightly at one of the several bars and restaurants that line the wooden outdoor boardwalk.

local's fav Aspen Grille
7. Aspen Grille

We usually spend our anniversary dinners at Aspen Grille in Myrtle Beach. The fantastic restaurant offers an eclectic menu with an emphasis on sustainable and local ingredients. While I always get the grouper, my husband loves their rib-eye steaks. And we both love the wine list. They also often have live music near the bar area, which helps create their overall romantic atmosphere.

8. Huntington Beach State Park or Myrtle Beach State Park

Both of the Grand Strand’s state parks are incredibly romantic to me! My husband and I both love taking walks and being outdoors and both parks offer an affordable daytime date. Strolling the pier at Myrtle Beach State Park and exploring Atalaya Castle at Huntington Beach State Park are both great activities for those looking to spend some quality time together. And as a bonus, the beaches here are always less crowded!

9. The Brentwood Restaurant & Wine Bistro

The historic Brentwood Restaurant features a combination of French and Lowcountry cuisine at its finest. Housed in a Victorian home built in 1910, the restaurant is rumored to be home of a popular ghost. With an ever changing menu and staff eager to share the restaurant’s many ghost stories, it’s a super fun spot to cozy up with a good glass of wine and your loved one.

10. Enchanted Sailing Charters

Enchanted Sailing Charters is the largest chartered sailboat in the Myrtle Beach area. With a large deck area for a great view, this 44-foot sailboat offers an amazing atmosphere for time out on the water. While they offer regular half-day and full-day excursions, the sunset dinner cruise or engagement cruises sound especially romantic to me.
