Shopping in Myrtle Beach Sc

Malls are a thing of the past in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Where the malls used to stand, other buildings have now taken over, or a vacant concrete field stands empty. Outlet centers and what looks like small villages surrounded by lakes now replace the malls in this huge tourist attraction beach area.

Broadway at the Beach, located between 21st Avenue and 29th Avenue at 1325 Celebrity Circle, is the most popular among the tourists. With its 350 acres of hotels, restaurants and shopping, you could easily just park the car at the beginning of your vacation and never leave this small village until the end of your vacation. A 23-acre lake in the middle of the complex gives you a sense of peace. Boat rides are offered for a small price to get you from one end to the other of the lake. If you like fish, you can feed the ones that occupy the lake.

As far as the shopping goes, Broadway at the Beach has something for everyone. For the children in your family, Build-A-Bear, Club Libby Lu (for the girls) and Ridemakerz (for the boys mainly) are the popular places. For the adults numerous other kinds of shops such as Tiki Jim’s, Tango Bay Clothing, Harley Davidson, John Deere and many others.

Moving on toward the Atlantic Ocean and along Ocean Boulevard, the street running parallel to the shoreline, you can find plenty of souvenir shops with Myrtle Beach apparel, swimsuits and henna tattoos. These shops are great for those who do not want to get in a vehicle and who prefer to walk and enjoy the ocean breeze.

In both Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach, the Tanger Outlet Centers are the places to go if you want discount name brand clothing, shoes and other assorted items, such as Gap, Aeropostale, Skechers, Adidas, and Kitchen Collection. If you do not like crowds, these outlet centers are not as busy during the day giving you plenty of opportunity to shop in a relaxed atmosphere.

Also, in North Myrtle Beach is Barefoot Landing. This shopping area used to be the place to shop before Broadway at the Beach came along in 1995. It has a 27-acre lake in the middle as well and a boardwalk you cross to shop in the stores on the other side of the lake. Barefoot Landing had several of the same shops as Broadway at the Beach such as Tiki Jim’s and Tango Bay Company as well as other shops such as Barefoot General Store and Inner Island Surf and Sport Resortwear. The biggest draw is the Ron Jon Surf Shop, a store based in Florida, where you can buy all of your surfing and skateboarding needs as well as clothes sporting the Ron Jon logo.

If shopping is a favorite thing to do for you, then Myrtle Beach has plenty of shopping to keep you busy during your week of vacation.
