Valentine’s Day is approaching fast, and this is one holiday you don’t want to let slip up on you. Doing something special for your loved one, whether it’s a romantic weekend retreat to Myrtle Beach or a gift they will remember and cherish forever, this is your chance to set the tone for the next year of your relationship, so don’t blow it.
Play it safe and do all of the above – flowers, chocolates, jewelry, the works – along with a relaxing weekend at Bayview Resort. Staying in Myrtle Beach will give you ample opportunity to shower your loved one in gifts, as well as make some lasting memories, like a romantic dinner for two at Sea Captain’s House and a scenic ride on the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel. Here’s a list of five things to do for your loved one this Valentine’s Day, and where to find it:
* Accommodations: Nothing makes for a more romantic getaway than a weekend getaway to an oceanfront resort in Myrtle Beach. Bayview has a wide selection of love nests perfect for couples to escape to the beach to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Enjoy a romantic stay overlooking the Atlantic Ocean from your private balcony, or hit the town for a night of dining and dancing. Located in the heart of downtown Myrtle Beach, Bayview gives guest easy access to all the major attractions, dining, shopping and nightlife.
* Candy: They say they path to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and the same appears to be true for women, at least when it comes to candies and chocolates. Myrtle Beach has you and your loved one covered on the sweets and treats. Try Canipes Chocolates at Coastal Grand Mall or Croissants in Myrtle Beach for some special dessert items designed for Valentine’s Day. If you prefer quantity over quality, check out It’s Sugar in downtown Myrtle Beach for a wide selection of goodies. For a real romantic dessert, have a nightcap at The Melting Pot for an ooey, gooey fountain of chocolate for dipping.
* Flowers: Roses can be hard to find in the winter months, especially around Valentine’s Day, when the traditional red flowers are in the highest demand. Myrtle Beach has several florists that stock up for the holiday and offer special bouquets featuring all kinds of floral arrangements. Check out Flowers on Broadway, Bright & Beautiful, Little Shop of Flowers and Flowers by Richard in the downtown area.
* Jewelry: Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and a pretty smart investment for the guys, especially if you plan on popping the question or celebrating an anniversary on Valentine’s Day. Myrtle Beach has a wide range of jewelry stores, ranging from high-end to bargain basement. In addition to all the major national retailers, Myrtle Beach also has locally owned jewelers, such as Vicki Lyn Michael’s Fine Jewelry, Handpicked and Bijuju. If you want more bang for your buck and your bride to be is cool with it, Dick’s Pawn Shop has a jewelry showcase on Highway 501 with the best prices in town.
* Spa: Perhaps the most romantic Valentine’s Day present on the Grand Strand doesn’t come in a box or a vase. The gift of a massage or ritual body treatment may be intangible, but they have become increasingly popular in the age of health and fitness. There are many therapeutic massage spas and salons located throughout Myrtle Beach, but guests at Bayview Resort have access to the most exclusive spa in town – The Cinzia Spa at North Beach Plantation.
