Few settings can rival the beach when it comes to romance – the ocean waves’ soothing sounds, the sand’s soft feel between your toes, and the blue ocean waters’ beauty all combine to create an amorous atmosphere. And not many destinations along the coast offer nearly the wealth of activities and accommodations found on the Grand Strand. So, it’s no big surprise that the Myrtle Beach area is a clear leader when considering Valentine’s Day destinations.
On the Myrtle Beach oceanfront at Bay View on the Boardwalk, romance is made especially easy. In addition to the resort’s long list of comfortable accommodation options and awesome amenities, a range of the traditional Valentine’s Day treats and experiences can be reached with an easy walk down the famous Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, which runs along the beach right outside the property’s back door. Consider a lover’s stroll to these destinations on the Boardwalk – all sure to pack a romantic punch for you and your special someone this Valentine’s Day:
High-Elevation Romance: Take your love to new heights with a ride on the iconic Myrtle Beach SkyWheel. Hop aboard one of the 187-foot-tall Ferris wheel’s 42 glass-enclosed, climate-controlled gondolas to get a bird’s-eye view of the Boardwalk, the coastline, the ocean and downtown Myrtle Beach. While the gondolas have room for up to six, you can rest assured that the romance won’t be spoiled by strangers – a private flight is assured for all boarding parties. The ride will take you for three revolutions, which amounts to about 10 minutes of enjoying Myrtle Beach’s beauty from your romantic elevated viewpoint.
Dinner: For a Valentine’s Day meal your sweetheart is sure to fall in love with, a pair of great options can be reached via a fun stroll down the Boardwalk. The Pier House Restaurant, located on the Second Avenue Pier near the southern terminus of the Boardwalk, offers fresh seafood, steaks and more – along with million-dollar views through the large windows right over the water. For pre- or post-dinner drinks, head to the attached Pier View Open Air Bar to catch some ocean breezes and incredible views of the Atlantic. Or head north to the other end of the Boardwalk to check out RipTydz Oceanfront Grill and Rooftop Bar. This new Myrtle Beach dining destination serves up fresh seafood and prime steaks with sweeping ocean views. If you want to keep your date night rolling late into the night, the rooftop bar offers live music nightly.
Dessert: Finish off your date with a sweet treat for your sweetie. At I LOVE SUGAR, candy not only fills the shelves but is also the main ingredient in much of the unique artwork that decorates the store, such as a chandelier made of 30,000 gummy bears, giant candy mosaics, and sculptures made of and/or depicting candies. Oversized candy is one of she store’s specialties, so you can show your Valentine how big your love is with an equally large gummy bear, a massive candy tube or an enormous box of his or her favorite candy like Mike & Ike, Jelly Belly, Laffy Taffy and Sour Patch Kids, to name a few.
