Relax and unwind
One of the many reasons Myrtle Beach is ideal for a wellness retreat is that the destination offers a getaway that is tranquil, peaceful and serene.
If your wellness resolution is to unwind more in 2020, look no further than Myrtle Beach as your go-to destination for relaxation. Sink into a Himalayan Salt Stone massage at the Cinzia Spa, where hand-carved warm salt stones gently soothe away the accumulation of stress and tension, while bringing the body and spirit into balance. Or you can plan an entire day of spa treatments at Awakening Spa, including facials, wraps and aromatherapy, on your own or with a partner or friend.
You can just relax and soak up the sun on one of many beautiful beaches, or while enjoying a sailboat charter or riverboat tour of the Intracoastal waterway.
Your idea of relaxation might include bathing in beauty. If so, spend a day at Brookgreen Gardens to enjoy both the natural outdoor beauty as well as the world-class sculptures. The area is home to dozens of art galleries for your perusal, as well as The Burroughs and Chapin Art Museum, which features southern artists in a wide range of different media. For those who find creative pursuits relaxing, the museum offers art classes.
