South Carolina is full of fun, unique things to do that are perfect for date night. Between outdoor adventures and romantic gardens, there is no shortage of things for you and your SO to do. So, next time you and bae are planning date night skip the normal dinner and drinks and check out one of these fun spots:
Brookgreen Gardens – Myrtle Beach, SC
As a National Historic Landmark, Brookgreen Gardens is the jewel of the Grand Strand. Among the 9,000 acres of South Carolina history located in the gardens, you will find outdoor sculptures and animals in scenic enclosures, a Butterfly house, the Peace Garden Room, reflecting ponds, and hidden pathways. With plenty of open spaces to enjoy a picnic or lay back and relax. During the month of December, the gardens are transformed into a Night of 1,000 Candles. Watch the gardens come to life with more than 4,500 hand-lit candles and countless sparkling lights. Walk around the beautiful park with a warm cup of cider, hear the sounds of holiday music, and celebrate the season.

Enjoy the evening alongside your significant other for a date you won’t ever forget. Check out these Charleston Harbor Tour options: Spiritline Cruises, Coastal Expeditions, and Adventure Harbor Tours.
Auto 25 Drive-In – Greenwood, SC
