By now you probably know that shopping is one of the best things about a Myrtle Beach vacation. With outlet malls, boutiques, countless beachwear and souvenir stores, hundreds of gift shops, and 2 regional malls, you can visit a new store every day and still not see them all. You'll find stores that appeal to everyone in the whole family in North Myrtle Beach, so nobody will be left behind on a shopping excursion.
Myrtle Beach is home to several large golf stores such as Martin’s PGA Tour Store. If it is related to golf, you can find it there. There are hundreds of golf courses in the area, so a pro shop is never far away. Camping World is in Myrtle Beach off Highway 501, offering everything you need for your outdoor experience or RV road trip.
Perhaps the most famous outdoor enthusiast mega-store is Bass Pro Shops, located near the intersection of Highway 17 and Highway 22. This camping/hunting/fishing wonderland is close to Tanger Outlets, where there are literally hundreds of stores with designer brands from every category. With a food court serving top-quality food, you could spend your whole day at this famous shopping mecca!
But you don’t have to stop there; drive further south to Broadway at the Beach to browse the outdoor mall and boardwalk. One-of-a-kind shops line the cobblestone streets, inviting you in with interesting gadgets, homemade fudge and candy, novelty gifts, designer clothes and accessories, and exotic décor. While you’re there, check out Celebrity Square, an array of fine dining restaurants and nightclubs. Bring your kids to Broadway at the Beach and treat them to customized souvenirs like teddy bears at Build-a-Bear or tricked-out model cars at RideMakerz.
The Market Common at Myrtle Beach is truly shopping at its best. Upscale stores and restaurants are encased in historic-style architecture, with private lofts above that house year-round residents. This creates a "town square" kind of feel, complete with a central park for special events. After your full day of shopping, pamper yourself with a massage at Dolce Lusso Salon & Spa, and have dinner at P.F. Chang’s or Tommy Bahama.
On your way back to North Myrtle Beach, stop at Barefoot Landing to check out the gift shops and take a walk across the lake on their wooden bridges. There are plenty of specialty shops and unique restaurants, where you can relax and have drinks and dessert.
There is simply too much shopping in North Myrtle Beach to do in one day, so you might have to split your time between a few days, or just hit one or two of these shopping complexes.Also, you are never too far from a beach store when you vacation in North Myrtle Beach.
