Treat Yourself to a Grande Night Out

March 4th, 2024

2024 happens to be a Leap Year. Since it comes with an extra day (and night), why not spend it doing something a little special? Grande Dunes and the surrounding areas are rich with things to do, places to eat and experiences to explore.

Enjoy a Night Out in Myrtle Beach

You may have heard about the trend called “Progressive Food Tours” where you can sign up for a tasting tour of a city – either with a group or for just the two of you. Myrtle Beach offers a number of guided culinary experiences that let you sample various local dishes at different restaurants. It’s a great opportunity to discover new, scintillating flavors. If you’re part of a tour group, it’s also a relaxed, low-key way to socialize.

To keep things a bit more intimate and leisurely, North Myrtle Beach is home to an impressive number of nationally recognized, four- and five-star restaurants that you can explore on your own.

Fun fact: South Carolina is the nation’s second-largest peach producer, second only to California (and ahead of Georgia!), so no matter where you dine, consider some famous peach pie for dessert.

Longing for The Arts?

If you’re in the mood for some artistic stimulation, visit The Long Bay Symphony. Founded more than 35 years ago, The Long Bay Symphony has since grown into the area’s largest professional musical institution.

They host a number of events with world-class talents to appeal to any preference: The Masterworks Series, The Pops Series, Special Events – that includes the long-running concert “Bravo Broadway!” – and Youth Showcases that nurture talent and foster a passion for the arts in young people. Long Bay also holds exclusive, elegant fundraisers for its special donors and volunteers.

Keep it Close to Home

Maybe you want your night out to last all day. No need to go far – Grande Dunes boasts two championship golf courses, a spot on Golf Digest’s list of “The Best Golf Courses in Every State,” and was ranked among America’s top 100 public courses. With lush sprawling views and challenging greens, it’s perfect for a little friendly competition under the South Carolina sun. 

After the 18th, treat yourself to casual, fine dining at Hook and Barrel. Lauded for sustainable, local and regional seafood, fine wine selection and high-end spirits. Delight in the she-crab soup that’s prepared right in front of you at the steam galley, an espresso-rubbed NY strip or share bites of the sticky toffee bundt. It’s the ideal ending to a special day.

Make New Memories and Grande New Traditions

Grande Dunes is the ideal community to complement a vibrant, engaging, leisurely lifestyle. Come for the adventure, stay for the sense of belonging.
