Sure, Myrtle Beach is known as the golf capital of the world, but that doesn’t mean that’s all we have to offer! Aside from various attractions and shows, the Grand Strand boasts several Myrtle Beach shopping destinations that are a must-stop year after year. Below are a few places that you may have heard of, as well as a few local gems!
The Hammock Shops – Pawleys Island
A few short miles from the Inlet Sports Lodge along Highway 17 is a quaint little strip mall known as the Hammock Shops. From nautical gift shops and candy stores to gourmet foods and pet supplies, this place has it all! Plan to eat lunch at bisQit while you are there and enjoy a taste of the Lowcountry.
The Market Common – Myrtle Beach
Located on Farrow Parkway on the South end of Myrtle Beach, this is truly the Myrtle Beach mecca for urban chic lifestyle shopping. Built to resemble an urban Charleston type village, it features big names such as CityMac, Bath & Body Works, and Victoria’s Secret, but also features lesser known hipster and upscale boutiques. Market Common also offers a unique array of dining options with names such as Tupelo Honey Café, Toffino’s Italian Deli, Gordon Biersch Brewery and Grille, and more! Very walkable with weekly events in the summer and an onsite high end movie theater.
Broadway at the Beach – Myrtle Beach
Located in the heart of Myrtle Beach, enjoy over 350 acres of dining, shopping, the best nightlife at the beach, and amusements! This is a Myrtle Beach staple that has been around for years but has constantly changed throughout. Within the next few months, Broadway at the Beach will boast a brand new Dave & Busters as well as a new restaurant concept from Paula Deen! How about that y’all?
Barefoot Landing – North Myrtle Beach
The original shopping staple at the beach! Located in North Myrtle Beach, this red metal roof shopping experience features wooden decks throughout to enjoy the scenery and massive lake with natural area and floating bridge! Keep your eyes out for jumping fish and crawling alligators. Enjoy experiences such as the Alabama Theatre, Alligator Adventure, and the House of Blues while dining at the highest Trip Advisor ranked restaurant named Flying Fish among others!
Tanger Outlet Centers – Myrtle Beach & North Myrtle Beach
Featuring two locations, one on 17 Bypass and one on Highway 501, this national chain features leading brands from all over! For a more outdoor experience venture over to 501, and for those rainy days 17 Bypass can take the front seat. Both locations feature either onsite or nearby dining options to please the shoppers palate. Get sporty with Under Armour or Nike or grab a designer bag for a night on the town at Coach or Michael Kors.
