If you want to do something exceptional this year for Valentine's Day first consider that it fall on a Thursday this year. That means you can spread it out into a four day weekend! A fabulous idea would be to take your special someone to Myrtle Beach and stay in one of the oceanfront Myrtle Beach house rentals
for the weekend.
The setting is beautiful and the views are phenomenal. What better way to show someone you care than by spending one-on-one time with them at the ocean pampering one another.
Shortly before that day arrives there are Mardi Gras celebrations going on around the Grand Strand. For instance the 3rd Annual Marshi Gras
will take place at the Murrells Inlet MarshWalk as they celebrate Fat Tuesday! Event takes place on Tuesday, Feb. 12 from 5-11:45 p.m.
Dick’s Last Resort Annual Mardi Gras Parade
will be held at 5 p.m. Tuesday, February 12 at Barefoot Landing. The parade will begin at Greg Norman's and wind around the waterway through the parking lot to Dick's Last Resort. Candy, beads, floats, animals and more will be the centerpieces in the parade. Stick around for more fun and games at the Mardi Gras party at Dick's Last Resort. This is a family-friendly event!
If you and your special someone are marathoners, why not tie your stay in our Myrtle Beach house rentals
into the local marathon going on. The 2013 Myrtle Beach Marathon
events will be held February 14-16, 2013 starting at Myrtle Beach Convention Center, 21 Ave N Oak Street, Myrtle Beach, SC.
