Sometimes life can be stressful and, for women, that’s the perfect time to call your best friends and start planning a girls’ trip! With more than 15,000 accommodations options in North Myrtle Beach, browsing the selection of spacious condos, charming villas and oceanfront homes is sure to inspire you (and your girlfriends) to get away.
Once you’ve booked a place to stay, round up your friends and start packing your bags. Whether you’re coming for a weekend or enjoying a longer break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, we’ve compiled a list of everything you need for the perfect girls’ trip:
START WITH A YUMMY BRUNCH
Start your girls’ trip off right with brunch on your plate and a mimosa in your hand. Blueberry’s Grill is the place to visit for foodies who love delicious, Southern-inspired dishes. Prepared with fresh ingredients, Blueberry’s Grill is known for putting unique twists on your favorite classic foods. This brunch spot’s menu will have your mouth watering before you even take your first bite. From eggs benedict with crab or salmon to biscuits and gravy with fresh sausage or gourmet omelets, Blueberry’s Grill has some of the most creative brunch options in all of North Myrtle Beach.
For the girls who love a more classic breakfast with loads of options, check out Johnny D’s Waffles and Benedicts. Voted by Food Network as the best waffles in South Carolina, Johnny D’s is known for its extensive menu of breakfast options and waffle flavors. Ranging from decadent flavors like red velvet and Funfetti to unique flavors like bacon and cinnamon roll, we guarantee there will be something on the menu for everyone in your gang.
SHOP ‘TIL YOU DROP
If you have a girls’ weekend and don’t go shopping, was it really even a girls’ trip? Luckily, North Myrtle Beach offers enough options that your group could easily explore a different shopping destination every day of your trip. For the bargain shoppers who are always looking to find the best deal, check out Tanger Outlets. Because the only thing better than shopping with your girls is being able to go home and tell your husband about all the money you saved while doing it, right?
Shop some of your favorite national brands at Myrtle Beach Mall, which, despite its name, is actually closer to North Myrtle Beach. If your group feels like driving a little further, head to the Market Commons in Myrtle Beach.
If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind item to bring home to your family, head to Main Street Ocean Drive. Shopping on Main Street allows you to leisurely stroll through blocks of locally owned shops and boutiques that you won’t be able to find anywhere else.
RELAX AT A WINE TASTING
Head to one of our local wineries to reminisce on old memories and create new ones with your girlfriends. For a classic winery experience in the heart of North Myrtle Beach, visit Duplin Winery. The winery’s helpful staff is ready to educate you on its winemaking method while you sit back and enjoy a delicious wine tasting. Duplin Winery even offers guests a unique opportunity to watch the bottling process. Who knew you could learn and drink wine at the same time? Before you leave, be sure to purchase a bottle (or two) of your new favorite label from the vineyard’s expansive store.
For an authentic vineyard experience, visit La Belle Amie in Little River. Wander the large picturesque property, peruse the gift shop full of wine accessories and unique gifts, and relax in rocking chairs on La Belle Amie’s massive tree-covered back porch. If your group loves live music, this vineyard is the place to “wine down” every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (weather permitting).
No matter if you choose to visit one or both of North Myrtle Beach’s wineries, the fun and relaxing atmospheres are guaranteed to add some sweetness to your girls’ trip.
TREAT YOURSELF TO A SPA DAY
Who isn’t looking to relax during a vacation, and what better way to do this than surrounded by your best friends at a local spa? You’ll leave your worries behind as you step through the doors of Touch MedSpa.
Priding itself in offering the very best to its clients, Touch MedSpa offers a variety of services, including chiropractic, classic spa treatments and even medical skincare. This salon is perfect for your next girls’ trip, as it even offers special packages exclusively for girlfriend get-togethers. Have a true pamper day with your girls and treat yourselves to a facial, massage or even both. Because, let’s be honest . . . you deserve it!
DID SOMEONE SAY HAPPY HOUR?
With countless fun restaurant and bar options in North Myrtle Beach, you can turn almost any hour into Happy Hour! Located in Barefoot Landing, Lucy Buffett’s Lulu’s is all about celebrating food and fun. Enjoy Lulu’s good vibes, including delicious food, live music and a stunning waterfront view. After a delicious drink—like the famous Bushwacker—the live music will perfectly set the mood so you can dance the night away with your closest friends.
If you’re looking for delicious Mexican cuisine, visit Taco Mundo. Specializing in tasty tacos, rice bowls and fajitas, this restaurant is authentic, energetic and perfect for any girls’ night out. Even better, Taco Mundo’s bar features a large selection of creative cocktails, signature margaritas and an assortment of tequilas. Sip on a frozen daiquiri and enjoy the outdoor bar, which features a beautiful view of the waterway. Happy Hour just got a whole lot better!
