Looking for a romantic date idea in Myrtle Beach? Visit the Franklin G. Borroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum.

When you find each other again, tour the museum as usual until you come to the exhibits you chose and talk about them together.
Dinner theater is an art in Myrtle Beach. Solve a 1920s murder mystery at Riga Tony’s, cheer for your knight in a jousting tournament at Medieval Times, feel the heat at the Polynesian Fire Luau, or see daring seafaring stunts at Pirates Voyage.
