What Mom Wants: A Mother’s Day Trip to Myrtle Beach

For a Mother’s Day that’s tough to top, what could be better than a trip to the Grand Strand? This year, treat mom to fun in the sun in her favorite vacation spot. The beach is heating up now.


That spring-to-summer transition is prime time in Myrtle Beach.


For the woman who does it all as a mom, wife, sister, friend, and more, don’t miss the chance to show your appreciation! Moms make the world go ‘round. Give her a beach getaway.

Fun Facts About Mother’s Day

Moms know all the important things. This we know. So, dazzle her with these.

  1. The First Mother’s Day Mom Was Rhea

This is even cooler if your mom’s name is Rhea. A Greek spring celebration honored Rhea, the goddess of fertility, and generation.

  1. Forty-Six Countries Celebrate Mother’s Day

Moms are pretty universal. The time of year varies by nation, which is fine, so long as you remember the date for where YOU live.

  1. Anna Jarvis is the Mother of Mother’s Day in America

And she should credit … her mom, who organized women’s groups to promote friendship and health. It began with Mrs. Jarvis’ memorial service in 1907. The nation followed suit with the holiday by 1914.

Take an Excursion to Myrtle Beach With Mom

1. Get Matching Tattoos at Elite Ink Tattoos of Myrtle Beach

You and mom will be quite happy with the work you’ll get at Elite. This wonderful, genuine shop will become your favorite (if ink on the Grand Strand is your jam.) They have a ton of 5-star reviews and are right in the middle of it all at the beach.


Pro Tip

Choose something that means the most to you. A popular choice is holding hands, but if there’s a secret code or inside story, that’ll feel more personal.




2. Do a Karaoke Duet at Pop’s Place

This popular, casual joint has cocktails, beer, and burgers, so it’s an entire mood. The accepting vibe you’ll find will help give you the courage to take the stage! You’re sure to make friends in this old Myrtle Beach standard, too.


Pro Tip

Three songs that would rock it:

  • “Never Grow Up,” by Taylor Swift
  • “Count on Me,” by Bruno Mars
  • “A Mother’s Prayer,” by Celine Dion

Take a shag step back in time with this classic dance genre in a spot with DJs, live music, lessons, and contests. The atmosphere is nostalgic, and you’re sure to hear old favorite songs you haven’t heard in a while. Grab a bite and a drink while you’re there.


Pro Tip

If you’re in for a week, drop by Monday nights. That’s when you can take lessons for all skill levels.
