Everyone looks forward to that sweet escape to the shores of Myrtle Beach, and when hardworking women need a break, a girl’s getaway weekend is certainly in order. Here is a great weekend itinerary sure to leave you rejuvenated, relaxed, reconnected.
After you arrive and get settled, anyone up for a pre-dinner drink or appetizer can check out popular Taco Mundo, a popular sundowner spot located across from Barefoot marina on the Intracoastal Waterway in Barefoot Landing of North Myrtle Beach. Locals and visitors alike come to this sprawling venue for its open-air relaxed vibes, funky decor, and lively atmosphere. Watch the yachts as you catch up with friends over happy hour at this unique restaurant and bar.
When the sun sets, round up the girls and head to Midtown Bistro for some of the best Italian in town. This casual upscale restaurant features a live piano player, local artwork, and delicious appetizers and entrees. The owner goes spearfishing off the coast and brings his catch to the table, so the nightly specials here are quite the treat.
Continue the evening on nearby Main Street, which boasts a cluster of beach clubs and bars, many with live music and always with a good crowd. The popular Duck’s Night Life features full bands over the weekend, and Sky Bar across the street has more of a club atmosphere. There are many additional bars, ice cream parlors, and more within this block, so you can try different spots and enjoy dessert with ease.
In the morning, hit the beach for some sun and sand or schedule a massage at the indulgent Cinzia Spa near Barefoot Landing. Once thoroughly relaxed and revived, head to Tanger Outlets on Highway 17 for some of the best shopping in town. They have a great selection of stores and is conveniently located right where North Myrtle Beach and Myrtle Beach come together.
With the retail therapy complete, salsa down the street to Nacho Hippo Cantina Maximo for lunch. With a funky vibe, festive atmosphere, and the best nachos in town, it’s a great place to kick back and have a laugh. Throw in bartender Beach Kenny serving up their signature “hip” margarita and “Big Apple” Mojito cocktails, and it will surely be a fun afternoon.
For the evening, dinner outside overlooking the marsh inlet at Joe’s Bar & Grill is a must. With one of the best menus in town, and ringside seats for sunset over the inlet, the restaurant is a treat for all the senses. Those in the know will arrive early to enjoy a pre-dinner drink on the open-air back deck. In the winter, the deck has heaters and a fireplace for ultimate enjoyment.
Catch some last rays of sun, check out, and enjoy a quick farewell breakfast at Eggs Up Grille or a light lunch of the famous salad at California Dreaming before heading home.
