A Romantic Getaway in Myrtle Beach, SC

Grab your honey and head for Myrtle Beach for some great off-season fun!

Some people  think of Myrtle Beach primarily as a summer beach or golf destination, but there’s plenty to do off-season along the Grand Strand.

Accommodations:  Get some great winter rates at  Marriott’s Resort & Spa at Grand Dunes. Enjoy an oceanfront/view room or a 2-bedroom villa. Walk on an uncrowded beach, have a drink in the bar with an ocean view, or indulge at their Hibiscus Spa with a winter special of two mini spa services (facial, manicure, pedicure or massage)  for just $85.

Upscale dining: 

Brentwood Restaurant & Wine Bistro

Brentwood Restaurant & Wine Bistro

(1)The Brentwood Restaurant & Wine Bistro (Little River, SC)  Featuring “Low  Country French Cuisine,” this unique restaurant is located  in a quaint Victorian home built in 1910. With several fireplaces and private dining rooms this is the place for a great romantic dinner!  The staff will gladly share stories about how the house is haunted!

Select from the Chef’s 7-course Tasting Menu, a 4-course “Prix Fixe,” or the La Carte dinner menu. I selected the Cote De Beuf (Cadillac of Steaks) while my husband had a daily special of Beef Wellington.  The Brentwood also boasts a huge wine selection. In fact, several rooms are totally wallpapered with wine corks!  Chef Eric Masson, who holds three culinary degrees, won first place in the 201 1 Coastal Uncorked Iron Chef competition.

(2) Croissants Bistro & Bakery
