Whether you’ve just met a new significant other or you’ve been married to your sweetheart for what seems like an eternity, Myrtle Beach has plenty of options for spending time together as a pair. Sometimes it’s worth it to blow the budget on a night out, but here are some date night options for less than ten dollars a person.

Picnic

If you plan your menu right and pick a good location, a four-course picnic on the beach is well within reach. Just think – a few slices of bread, some deli meat, chips and salsa, crackers and cheese, fresh fruit, and whatever your favorite bite size dessert may be? There are plenty of oceanfront restaurants in Myrtle Beach, but none where you can bring your own food and enjoy it while sitting on the sand with your date.

Stroll on a Pier

For a romantic walk out over the Atlantic, the Grand Strand has several scenic piers to choose from. The long wooden structures begin up north in Cherry Grove and dot the beach all the way down to Garden City. Most of them charge a dollar or two for a stroll because pier maintenance is not cheap, but this minimal fee gets you one of the most romantic activities available in Myrtle Beach.

A ticket to the Budweiser Thirst Inning Deck is just $8 when purchased at least a day in advance. Ticketreturn.com field is a great place to take a date for a night of minor league baseball, and Tuesdays ($2 craft beer, 6 – 8 p.m.) and Thursdays ($1 draft, 6 – 8 p.m.) are the perfect nights for budget-conscious couples to catch a game. And for added incentive, East Coast Pyrotechnics puts on a fireworks show after the game every Thursday night.

Miniature Golf

Test each others competitive nature and skill on the greens at one of the Grand Strand’s finest putt-putt courses. But don’t get too serious about your score – these little trick-laden tracks aren’t meant to determine winners and losers. Because think about it, would a true test of skill really involve hitting your ball into a tunnel or stream in order to get closer to the hole? Most courses are in the $9-$10 range.
