So, no matter who’s in your Myrtle Beach vacation crew, you’re all covered here — and you can rest assured that visitors of all ages and interests can find plenty of ways to have a great time.
This particular list is meant for the husbands out there looking for a special way to treat their wives — while, of course, getting to enjoy the spoils of a Myrtle Beach trip themselves, too. Check out this itinerary for a weekend getaway built just for her:
Breakfast at Croissants Bistro & Bakery: Start her day in the most delicious way with breakfast (or brunch after sleeping in a bit) at Croissants Bistro & Bakery, a Myrtle Beach favorite since 1995. There’s one located on North Kings Highway just a mile north of Ocean Reef Resort, and the tasty ways to indulge here include an array of crepes, benedicts and other house specialties such as Chicken & Waffles, Bananas Foster French Toast and Shrimp & Grits.
Shopping at The Market Common: Found just south of Myrtle Beach International Airport, upscale shopping/dining destination The Market Common is a safe bet for the wife who enjoys a little retail therapy during her beach getaway. An array of boutique and nationally known shops can be found along the small-town-feel sidewalks of the “uptown downtown” complex, and the names on the list of nearly 25 retailers include favorites like the Southern Living Store, Francesca’s, J. Jill, Soma, Anthropologie, The Walking Company and more.
Pampering at Cinzia Spa: You know she’s earned it, and a world of much-deserved relaxation and pampering awaits her at Cinzia Spa, located about 6 miles up Highway 17 at Ocean Reef’s sister resort North Beach Plantation. Here, your true love can choose from a long list of massage varieties including deep-tissue massages, Swedish massages and aromatherapy massages — or a hybrid of the three. Other mood-boosting offerings at the 17,000-square-foot well-being oasis include manicures, pedicures, facials and body treatments.
Wine tasting at La Belle Amie Vineyard: Found in the quaint Carolina border town of Little River, La Belle Amie is small, family owned and operated winery that produces dozens of wine varieties ranging from reds and whites to dessert wines on its 38-acre farm. Visitors looking to sample a few can try six different wines for a small fee of $6 (which includes a souvenir logo wine glass), then take bottles home with them to enjoy later or to give as gifts. An on-site gift shop also offers wine accessories, salsas, sauces and more.
Dinner at Greg Norman Australian Grille: Recently renovated and found harborside at the Barefoot Landing shopping/dining/entertainment complex, Greg Norman Australian Grille specializes in fresh, wood-grilled seafood, steaks and chicken. To top off her amazing day, treat your better half to her choice from among menu favorites like Lobster Ravioli, Wood-Grilled Shrimp, Seared Ahi Tuna or Black Angus Prime Rib.
