By Samantha Norton Follow me on Google+

Few things are as romantic as a beach trip with your special someone and a vacation can be the perfect time to let them know that you want to spend the rest of your lives’ together. But where do you pop the question?


The Beach

No surprise here, the beach is one of the most popular places to propose. The warmth of the golden sand and the tides of the blue Atlantic will serve as the romantic backdrop for your proposal. Any time of day is the perfect time of day to propose when you are at the beach, whether it is during a magical sunrise, mid-day while you bask in the sunshine or a romantic walk at dusk.

Or if you want the same great backdrop but without the chance of a stray wave ruining your moment, the Boardwalk in downtown Myrtle Beach offers the same sights and sounds but from a distance.


The SkyWheel

A trip on the SkyWheel can be a great way to enjoy the views of the beach from high above, creating a unique moment to ask your significant other that oh so important question. Just think of the special memory you will share for the rest of your lives’.


The Balcony

Some couples like to keep things a bit more private and low key, but still want to have the beach as a backdrop. For these couples, the balcony of your hotel room is a great option. Tell the hotel staff your plan and they’ll be only too glad to help you add some extra special elements to the plan.


Brookgreen Gardens

Brookgreen Gardens is one of the most romantic places in the Myrtle Beach area. The gardens are filled with beautiful statues, water features, plants and sweeping views of the former rice plantation; you can take a romantic stroll and get down on one knee anywhere in the gardens. It will surely be a proposal to remember.


Ripley’s Aquarium

If you happen to be looking to propose on a day when the weather outside isn’t picture perfect, Ripley’s Aquarium is beautiful year-round, no matter what the weather outside is doing. With colorful fish, beautiful reefs and more surrounding you, Ripley’s will provide an enchanting backdrop to your big moment, especially if you do it along one of the guided paths that make you feel like you’re under the sea.
