For a day-long destination, head to Broadway at the Beach. You’ll find plenty of shopping, along with attractions, dining, and nightlife. If the day’s shopping has left you exhausted, enjoy an adult beverage as you listen to local live music. Be sure to check the website for special events and lively entertainment throughout the summer. Don’t miss Over the Moon Productions’ stilt walkers, jugglers, fire and LED light shows, and more of your favorite circus-like acts!
A little farther north, Barefoot Landing is located on the Intracoastal Waterway, with shopping, dining, and an ever-changing lineup of entertainment. On the north end, Coastal North Towne Center has more than 30 exciting stores, some not found anywhere else along the Grand Strand.
Coastal Grand Mall in Myrtle Beach has a multi-screen movie theater, assorted restaurants, and over 100 shops. You’ll find plenty of your favorite stores as well as some uncommon boutiques. Pace yourself – there is another mall in the area. Myrtle Beach Mall on the north end of Myrtle Beach features Bass Pro Shop and it’s also where Carolina Improv Company performs to sold-out crowds.
In 1946, Justin and Eloise Plyler opened a small gift shop on Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach. Now, the Gay Dolphin Gift Cove is the largest gift shop on the East Coast, with 26,000 square feet and 70,000 items, ranging from shark’s teeth to Hummel figurines. Before opening the store, Mr. Plyler loved to watch the dolphins through his telescope and always thought they looked happy and appeared to be smiling. This is where the store’s unique name originated. This is true homegrown destination shopping.
One of the most unique shopping destinations along the Grand Strand is The Market Common. Located on the site of the old Air Force Base, The Market Common has fine dining restaurants, a movie theater, and great shopping set in a beautifully designed urban village environment that encourages walking from place to place. Special events are held throughout the year, so check to see what’s planned!
