Watch the Sunset on the Skywheel:
Take a ride on the famous Myrtle Beach Skywheel located right on the beach near Landshark Bar and Grill. The completely enclosed, climate-controlled gondolas give you 360-degree views of Myrtle Beach and the ocean while reaching 200 feet high. This 12-minute ride is the perfect romantic activity. Stick around after sunset to check out the spectacular LED lightshow – it's hard to miss!
Parasail Along the Atlantic:
For the thrill-seeking couple, parasailing is the ideal activity. Hop on one of the banana boats and enjoy a wild ride out to the parasailing boat. Once on the boat, you will be harnessed in and lifted high into the air where you’ll feel like you’re flying above the ocean. Enjoy magnificent views of the ocean and feel the cool breeze as you soar in the air. You will be brought back down and land softly on the boat. You can parasail with up to three people so you and your significant other can enjoy it together.
Ride along the Beach on Horseback:
Ride along the beach or on a trail on horseback. In the winter months, ride along the beach in Garden City on horseback or trail ride in Conway in the summer. You will receive complimentary pictures of your experience no matter what time of year. Rides last for an hour to an hour and a half and no prior riding experience is necessary as the horses are well trained and you’re with an experienced guide.
