Couples Getaway: Nearby Attractions
Myrtle Beach is the perfect spot for a couple’s outing. Whether you’re looking for excitement and thrills or a place to be quietly romantic, there’s a date-ready venue near Captain’s Quarters that’s sure to fit the bill. When you’re spending a day or night out with that special someone, try these ideas not far from your Myrtle Beach resort:
Ride the SkyWheel
Nothing says “romance” like a stroll along the Oceanfront Boardwalk and Promenade and a flight on the 187-foot tall Ferris wheel, one of the most popular attractions in Myrtle Beach. Snuggle up in one of the enclosed gondolas as you enjoy sweeping views in all directions. Don’t forget about the nightly light show as well! VMB cardholders get $2 per person off a SkyWheel flight before 7 p.m.
Walk around Brookgreen Gardens
Stroll beneath majestic oaks and enjoy vast expanses of beautiful gardens that have something in bloom in almost every season. Sculptures by renowned artists grace the gardens and paths, giving you plenty to explore and talk about as you walk hand in hand. Bring your VMB card along to save $1 per person off garden admission.
Enjoy the views at 2nd Avenue Pier
The perfect place to enjoy one of Myrtle Beach’s spectacular, romantic sunsets, the 2nd Avenue Pier is a Grand Strand landmark that is tailor-made for couples. Enjoy some of the best ocean views on the beach and stop at the Pier House Restaurant for a bite to eat and a spectacular ocean view. VMB cardholders get a free walking admission when they buy one.
Get a thrill with a zipline ride
Visit Myrtle Beach zipline near the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk to put a bit of a thrill in your relationship. Nothing impresses your date or gets your adrenaline rushing like a 600-foot zipline ride that reaches speeds of 40 mph and ends with a heart-stopping freefall. Couples can race along the zipline side-by-side, and nighttime adventures are available that are lit by neon lights. VMB Cardholders receive a special combo rate of zipline and free fall tower for $35.
These are just a few of our ideas for a romantic date for couples staying at Captain’s Quarters. What are you favorite places to go for romance in Myrtle Beach?
