My Fiance and I are planning a road trip from Maine to South Carolina for our honeymoon. We are renting a car and driving down. We’ve already booked our hotel at the Patricia Grand Resort Hotel. We are going to go to the Broadway on the Beach and visit a lot of the attractions down there. We are just looking for any helpful hints or suggestions on places to visit, or places not to visit. This is our first vacation together, and my first road trip ever! I’m very much looking forward to it!!!!

Definitely stop at the visitor’s center and get some coupons. You can get good deals on restaurants and things like water parks. Also, if it’s still there, one of the best restaurants at Broadway at the Beach is Key West Grill (or at least it was when I went there last) while Margaritaville has been hit or miss. The Ripley’s Aquarium is pretty nice too if you have the money plus there are TONS of mini golf places in Myrtle Beach that can be a lot of fun although some are VERY crowded. The one we usually go to is Mount Atlanticus but it is one of those that can be very crowded. Barefoot Landing is another area in Myrtle Beach that is great for shopping and eating (Dick’s Last Resort isn’t romantic but can be fun – you sit with other people usually and they can be kind of crude but if that’s your thing it’s fun and cheap). Also, on a lot of beaches at night there are usually fireworks. Hopefully this helps a little at least considering most of my knowledge is from family trips, not really romantic vacations.

If you can, go down to Charleston for a day.

THanks for the tips!
Yes, we are going to visit Charleston, as we have a friend who has moved down there so we are going to hang out with him for a couple days.
We are going to the Ripley’s Aquarium and will definitely be stopping to get the coupon book! We are going to try and buy tickets online and print them before we go down, so we can save time, and because I like to be organized and make sure everything is all together!
Anyone have any suggestions on a romantic restaurant to go to? We want to dress up one night and go out for a romantic dinner 🙂

@almostmrsrjc: I’ve never really gone to a romantic restaurant in Myrtle Beach but in Charleston if you want something a little nicer you could go to Magnolia’s which is where we had our dinner reception, it was delicious!
