Get Ready for Date Night in North Myrtle Beach

When you and your sweetheart find yourselves with some alone time at the beach, what better way to spend it than on a date? Whether you’re young or young at heart, there’s something here that every couple is sure to enjoy. We’ve got the perfect list of fun, romantic date night ideas for your next North Myrtle Beach vacation.

If you’re traditional

Sure, dinner and a show might seem cliché, but trust us—you don’t want that to hold you back from North Myrtle Beach’s spectacular options. Start with dinner for two overlooking beautiful waterfronts at one of our unique local restaurants. The best time to enjoy a seafood feast is when you’re next to the water, so why not indulge a little? Before you go, book tickets in advance at one of our renowned theaters, such as the Carolina Opry, the Alabama Theater, or the House of Blues. Each venue boasts a show full of exciting live music that is sure to make for a night you won’t forget.

If you’re adventurous

Make date night extraordinary with a romantic horseback ride on unspoiled Waites Island. Schedule a relaxing sunset tour at Inlet Point Plantation to make the most of the magic hour. You and your sweetie will saddle up at the island’s stables before embarking on the beach trail, where you’ll enjoy the softly lapping waves, gentle sea breezes, and, of course, a dazzling sunset. To make this trip extra special, you can request an exclusive tour for just the two of you to enjoy.

For something a little more fast-paced, head over to Go Ape Zipline and Treetop Adventure. This exciting network of ziplines and obstacle courses are sure to get your hearts pumping. Why not unwind with a relaxing dinner afterwards?

If you’re into friendly competition 

Get your game face on and grab a few putters—it’s time to head to a mini-golf course! Each of the five courses here at North Myrtle Beach features an exciting theme that will have you feeling like a kid again. Take the opportunity to get a little closer to your honey by helping them out with their swing! Afterwards, head over to an ice cream parlor like Painter’s Ice Cream or Sweet Frog to share a delicious frozen treat.

If you’re looking for pure fun 

Here on the coast, dancing the Carolina Shag is one of our favorite ways to get a little closer to our loved one. Newbies and seasoned shag veterans alike can dance the night away right in the heart of North Myrtle Beach, where you’ll find two infamous shag clubs: Fat Harold’s and the OD Lounge. Each club offers shag lessons on certain nights, too—so even if you’ve never heard of the Shag, you and your partner will be twirling across the floor in no time.

No matter what kind of date night you and your sweetheart choose, a romantic evening in North Myrtle Beach will surely bring you closer together. So don’t forget to pencil in a little alone time when you’re planning your next getaway.
