You’ve been smitten since the first date. You love their quirks, and they love yours (at least you hope!). Now you’re on vacation in North Myrtle Beach..and you have a surprise. You’re ready to propose!

North Myrtle Beach is full of picture-perfect places to pop the question. Maybe it’s sharing your favorite treat at Whit’s Frozen Custard, during a dance lesson at Fat Harold’s Beach Club learning the Shag, or a simple walk along the beach. There’s no wrong moment. But don’t worry, if you still need a few ideas, we have a few suggestions to make the magic moment even more magical.

Ride Off Into the Sunset

There’s nothing as romantic as a horse ride down the beach side by side with your soon-to-be fiance. Horseback riding on Waites Island offers a proposal opportunity straight from a romantic movie. No motor traffic is allowed on the island, so privacy is almost assured. The peace will only be broken by the native wildlife looking on and applauding in their own way. 


Propose at a Pop-Up Picnic

NMB has many hidden romantic gems throughout the city. So if you don’t know all of them, that’s okay! Businesses like Soiree By The Sea are here to help you plan the perfect picnic. From the right location to curated charcuterie and delicious drinks, to the right basket and blanket, they’ve got you covered. They customize each picnic to the occasion.

After the proposal, you can walk off into the sunset. They’ll come by and clean everything up.

Set Sail for Romance

Whether you’re hitting the open water or taking a scenic sunset trip on a riverboat, just being on water adds a sense of romantic adventure to your proposal. 

The Barefoot Queen Riverboat offers sunset cruises and private charters that are perfect for an intimate proposal on the waterway. Imagine coasting the Intracoastal Waterway while live music cascades through the boat. It doesn’t matter what time of year you choose to propose, the Barefoot Queen Riverboat is temperature controlled. 

Get engaged surrounded by friends...or at least the friendliest creatures of the sea! Pods of dolphins make their home in the water around NMB and are always happy to greet visitors. Dolphin cruises are offered almost any time of day, and captains know just where to find the friendly creatures. Many charter companies including Voyager Deep Sea Fishing & Dolphin Cruise and Sea Screamer Dolphin Cruises will work with you to make the perfect moment. 

Relax & Enjoy

Start the morning off with a trip to Cinzia Spa where your special lady can get pampered before the big moment. Make sure her nails are picture-perfect for all the post-proposal photo ops with one of their signature manicure services. 

End the day with a romantic celebration at Wine Therapy. Taste wine selections from around the world or celebrate the upcoming “I Do” with a champagne toast.

Stay & Play

Many of NMB’s resorts will work with you to make sure everything is right before, during, and after the big moment. Accommodations, including Avista Resort and Prince Resort, have expert staff to make the day perfect. Both locations offer a premium rose petal turndown service for your room complete with a bottle of champagne to cheers your special day. For something a little more private, rent your own beach-front oasis with Elliott Beach Rentals.

Now all you have to do is start planning the wedding!
