Contact Your Sitter: Make Plans for a Grand Strand Weekend Getaway

It’s a stroke of genius.


And we know you love your kids. But a getaway — for parents only — is a beautiful idea. You work hard and need a dose of R&R too.


Here’s what you could do in Myrtle Beach for an off-season getaway. With Paradise Resort as your home base, the Grand Strand is your oyster.

1. Hit the Arcade

Usually, you hike to the game room to appease the kids. But when was the last time you went for a high score for yourself? Boardwalk Arcade (912 South Ocean Boulevard D) is right in the middle of it all. Talk about nostalgia.


ADVICE: Try Ripley’s Marvelous Mirror Maze (913 North Ocean Boulevard). Race your partner through, and get the glasses.

2. Go Bowling

Take your sweetheart to a place she can play and have an awesome meal. 810 Billiards & Bowling – The Market Common has the finest lanes in town. Plus, neon indoor mini golf and some of the yummiest chicken wings around.


ADVICE: Make your match interesting. Winner will receive dessert at The Crazy Mason Milkshake Bar. One glance at the menu and we’re in!

3. Check Out Coastal Carolina Hoops Action

See star guard Jomaru Brown and the Chanticleers in NCAA action this fall at the HTC Center. Coastal Carolina, of \the Sun Belt Conference, has home games through mid-February. Come and cheer on the teal!


ADVICE: Coastal Grill and Pizza is a popular pre-game stop. It’s famous for pizza, but the Mushroom & Swiss With Fries is a delicious burger.

4. Conquer an Escape Room

You might think that getting out of the house alone for the weekend is enough, but why not hit an escape room?! Riddles Escape Room is a blast, and your group is always private. Bring the kids next time — it’s fun for families, too.


ADVICE: Does your room require keys for the locks? Leave the key in the lock after you open it to keep it from getting mixed with others.

5. Race in Go-Karts!

Notice that some of these activities are ones you’d do with the kids? It’s nice to do them as a couple, too. You’ll have a blast at Broadway Grand Prix, on challenging tracks in a comfortable, clean setting.


ADVICE: Staying beyond the weekend? Buy a week pass. This will allow you to use the track, and also ride bumper cars and play minigolf.
