First, get your romantic day started by visiting Huntington Beach State Park, located just south of Murrells Inlet and off of Highway 17. Known for its tranquil beaches, nature trails, and of course, its Spanish-colonial-style castle, the park is sure to bring out your romantic side.

It features more than 30 rooms, with an elaborate courtyard in the center, where many bridal portraits and even wedding ceremonies still take place today.

Don't forget to take a walk along the sparkling Atlantic Ocean before moving on to your next destination: Brookgreen Gardens.
