Myrtle Beach Attractions For Couples
Though Myrtle Beach is a perfect place for families, sometimes guests prefer to enjoy a little quality time together – sans children. Whether you are enjoying a solo trip or just want to escape from the little ones for a bit for a romantic escapade, you will find plenty of places to enjoy quality time in Myrtle Beach! Make the most of your beach getaway with a visit to one of these romantic attractions:
Myrtle Beach Boardwalk
The recently renovated Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is the perfect place to enjoy a scenic seaside stroll with your special someone. The path spans just over a mile in length and is lined with several quaint shops and restaurants, meaning you will have plenty to do. The boardwalk is also home to the popular Myrtle Beach SkyWheel, a ferris wheel-esque ride that takes riders soaring over 40 stories into the air! The climate controlled gondolas provide breathtaking vistas of the Atlantic and are the perfect place to snuggle up and watch the sunset over the city skyline. The boardwalk also features live entertainment throughout the summer, completely free of charge.
Murrells Inlet MarshWalk
What could be more romantic than a seaside stroll along a scenic inlet? You can enjoy this, and much more, at the Murrells Inlet MarshWalk. The MarshWalk features nine local restaurants and bars, all connected via an inlet front boardwalk. These restaurants are known for serving up fresh seafood, cold beverages, and plenty of live entertainment. Come down and indulge in a succulent dinner and then stick around to enjoy live, local bands and unbeatable ocean views.
Brookgreen Gardens is the perfect place to enjoy the great outdoors. This nationally acclaimed outdoor sculpture garden spans over 15 square miles and is home to more than 1,000 species of wildlife. Brookgreen is composed of several individually themed and well maintained gardens, like the Live Oak Allee and Fountain of the Muses. These gardens are scattered with handcrafted sculptures from renounced artists from around the world. Brookgreen is also home to the Low Country zoo, a place where guests can view an array of local species in their natural habitat, in addition to an on-site café and gift shop.
Illusions of Magic - A Must See!
If there is one show to see in Myrtle Beach, the Palace Theater’s Illusions of Magic is it! With magic, dance, comedy, and danger acts, this show really does deliver edge-of-your-seat entertainment for the whole family.
The Palace Theater’s Illusions of Magic showcases the unbelievable talent of world-renowned magician, Peter Gossamer. From start to finish, Gossamer will have the audience amazed as he performs disappearing acts, levitates objects, separates assistants, and even transforms a motorcycle into a full-size racecar; all live on stage. Laugh along as Gossamer pulls volunteers from the audience and bewilders them with astonishing illusions and psychic predictions.
But magic isn’t all this show has to offer. Ben Blaque from America’s Got Talent will have hearts pounding as he performs dangerous crossbow stunts. Watch as Blaque takes his marksmanship to new levels executing nearly impossible precision shots, knocking an apple off of his own head while blindfolded, and hitting concealed, rotating targets pinned around his concealed, rotating assistant!
Still want more? Don’t worry; the Illusion of magic show keeps it coming with high-energy dancing, five live Bengal Tigers, and the first ever indoor human cannonball. All this, along with music, dancing, and special effects, make it impossible to look away.
When it’s all finally over, the audience can hang around after the show to have their picture taken on stage with the tiger and enjoy meeting with the full cast outside in the lobby.
Ticket prices range from $30 to $45 depending on section and show dates. The Palace Theater offers special package prices, as well as group rates for parties of 15 or more. The Palace Theater is located across from Broadway at the Beach at 1420 Celebrity Circle. Call the box office at (800) 905-4228 or go online to reserve a seat today!
