A honeymoon in paradise — what more could you want?
The traditional honeymoon has gone through modern transformations. It’s subject to preferences and details to match the couple. We’ve identified four fun themes sure to give you the unforgettable honeymoon you’re dreaming of.
For adventure, relaxation, splurges, and fun, the Grand Strand has it all.
What type of honeymoon do you want?
Set the tone for adventure marriage with adrenaline-pumping fun.
Where to visit: Free Fall Thrill Park
You’ll find a friendly, encouraging staff to help if you need a bit of courage to strap in and fly. A video of your ride together is the perfect wedding gift for each other. Keep the exhilaration going on the Air Strike, Screaming Swing, and Sun Dance.
Where to eat: RipTydz Oceanfront Grille & Rooftop Bar
A kickin’ atmosphere, cold drinks, amazing food, and incredible views. Hit RipTydz during happy hour if you can. Share Ahi Tuna & Avocado Toast and Baja Steak Tacos, and try a mega mason drink (we love the Everything Under the Sun!) Save room for Pound Cake With Strawberries and Cream.
Ah. That’s more like it.
What to do: See a show at Medieval Times
Sit back and enjoy an unparalleled display of falconry, horsemanship, and jousting — along with a four-course meal. In a castle! You’ll find yourself cheering like children and totally wrapped up in the story. Plan your experience online so all you have to do is show up and have fun.
Where to visit: The Cinza Spa at North Beach Resort & Villas
Spend a spa day here, right on-site at North Beach. You’ll find a beautiful space with superlative staff. Enjoy time in the courtyard with wine, too, or a light spa lunch in the meditation lounge. Indulge in the Self-Care Express or Cinza Signature Experience.
Where to eat: Villa Romana Italian Restaurant
Treat yourselves to a special dinner out. Villa Romana provides a festal throwback to Italy, with statues and a fountain. Fresh flowers on each table and accordion serenades make this an unforgettable night. Try specialties such as the Scalloppine Ripiene Al Vino Blanco. Or, traditional favorites Eggplant Parmigiana and Shrimp San Marzano, with Italian wine.
Luxury splurge honeymoon
Live a little, it’s your honeymoon.
What to do: Take a boutique shopping trip
After you’ve counted those cash gifts and gift cards, all there’s left to do is shop! North Myrtle Beach boasts one-of-a-kind shops where you’ll be sure to find items to start your life together with. Try these:
Style Me Boutique: Find rare items, with knowledgeable staff to assist you. See a preview of their incredible fashions online.
Men’s Store: Visit Rainbow Harbor for an exclusive men’s clothier experience. An expert staff has served the area for years, and you’ll come away with much more than great-fitting clothes.
The Market Common: For home and life, visit this downhome, upscale complex. Find your favorite good reads at Barnes & Noble. Satisfy your sweet tooth and pick up thank you gifts at The Uncommon Chocolatier. Fill your new home with exquisite scents and worldly items at Bath & Body Works. Try these spots (and take a break to share a plate of Macho Nachos at Nacho Hippo.)
Where to visit: Caledonia Golf & Fish Club
It’s opulent to the golfing couple, but having a golf game is optional to enjoy this incredible place. Visit Pawleys Island for a superior golf experience. Gorgeously rolling greens. Breathtaking fairways. And a tough-but-fair reputation. It’s a sight to behold. Finish your round with Weesie’s Soup of the Day in Caledonia’s Grill Room. Ronnie’s Barbecue Sandwich, Mrs. Anne’s Marinated Chicken, and Uncle Dave’s BLT are also favorites.
Where to eat: The Library Restaurant
A tuxedoed staff will take good care of you at this popular French steakhouse. Many consider The Library Myrtle Beach’s finest restaurant. Evidence isn’t in short supply. Amazing fare. Intimate confines. The Chicken Chardonnay is impeccable. Filet Mignon and Steak Diane highlight the chef’s selections.
The non-stop, fun-filled honeymoon
You’re in Myrtle Beach! Let the good times roll.
What to do: Shop at Hammock Shops Village
So many cool little shops to hit! Be sure to bring home a hammock for each of you before you go. Check out handcrafted collectibles and jewelry, wine tastings, gifts and candy, and more. Stop for a House Burger or Chicken Wings at BisQit.
Where to visit: The Swamp Fox at Family Kingdom
Tip: Get the wristband and spend the day a thrilling way, with more than 30 rides to choose from. The Swamp Fox, a wooden roller coaster, is a Myrtle Beach icon you owe it to yourself to conquer. Enjoy splash rides, a lazy river, go-kart racing, and more, too.
Where to eat: Margaritaville
Where chill meets cool, anything is possible. Escape to island time with American food and tropical drinks. It’s every bit as idyllic as you’d imagine a place bearing this name to be. We recommend Caribbean Chicken Egg Rolls and Landshark Lager Fish & Chips. A Double Cheeseburger in Paradise and a slice of Key Lime Pie make for the perfect dinner oasis.
