This particular list is meant for the loving wives out there seeking to surprise their husbands with a special treat — while, of course, getting to enjoy the spoils of a Myrtle Beach trip themselves, too. Check out this itinerary for a weekend getaway created just for him:
Craft Beer Tour: With breweries, brewpubs and craft-beer-focused bars found all over the Grand Strand, your beer connoisseur can find a wealth of places to wet his whistle in the Myrtle Beach area, whether he’s a fan of lagers, pilsners, blondes, browns, pales, porters, stouts or sours. Among the top local destinations for brew lovers are Broadway at the Beach’s American Tap House, Carolina Ale House, The Grumpy Monk and Liberty Brewery & Grill; downtown Myrtle Beach’s Atlas Tap House and New South Brewing; and the Market Common’s Gordon Biersch Brewery, King Street Grille and The Brass Tap.
Tee Time at Topgolf: For links lovers, Topgolf Myrtle Beach offers a golf-themed playground that puts a new spin on the driving range. The new attraction near Broadway at the Beach allows participants to hit microchipped golf balls at giant, dartboard-like targets spread across an outdoor playing field — all from the comfort of one of 72 climate-controlled “hitting bays” (somewhat similar to bowling lanes for golf). Rounding out the unique driving range-meets-nightclub experience are food and drink service from a “bayhost,” a chef-driven food menu, a full bar menu, big-screen TVs showing sporting events, and a festive music selection that supports a party atmosphere.

NASCAR Racing Experience: Providing high-octane thrills at Myrtle Beach Speedway, the NASCAR Racing Experience allows motorsports fans to get out on the track, into the car and even behind the wheel of a NASCAR pace car or race car, depending on the tier of experience they choose. Options include pace-car rides, ride-alongs in NASCAR race cars with professional drivers and various levels of behind-the-wheel action.
