A Little Bit of Coastal Everything
When you’re on vacation, part of the fun is venturing in a new location. But transportation can get a bit pricey. Instead of traversing the state, find a great place that has it all. In Myrtle Beach, Coastal Grand Mall is the place to be. Offering mall staples like Zumiez and Lids right next to a Golf Galaxy and Healthy Thai Chi Massage. While you’re there, clean up your looks at Fresh and Clean Cutz. Then you will have a whole new look when you go to eat at Texas Roadhouse and Grill, which gets capped off with dessert at Cinnabon. Then the leftovers will make for a good breakfast on the beach!

Unique Beach View Shopping
It’s always fun to go shopping. Nothing tickles that unexplainable itch to bolster the economy quite like swiping that piece of plastic to get some new stuff. The thing is, there’s a Ross and Nike at home. When you’re on vacation, it’s important to check out local places that are unique to your destination. That’s why you need to hit up the boutique shops at The Market Commons in Myrtle Beach. Get something special at Random Boutique and grab a novel to relax with on the beach from Barnes and Noble, all in the same shopping center. Don’t forget the novelty sweet from Uncommon Chocolatier! Then you can work off those calories with a restorative yoga session at Yoga in Common. Finally, grab dinner at the Seawitch Cafe and make this shopping adventure a full on experience that cannot happen anywhere else!

Water View to Relax at Stores
There’s something special about the southern hospitality you’ll experience while in South Carolina. It gets better to experience this warm welcome with a water view while you’re out shopping. This is exactly what happens when you go to Barefoot Landing. This is such a unique place with so much shopping potential that you’ll have to plan separate days to explore all the shops! There are beach classics like Ron Jon Surf Shop sitting next to specialized boutiques like Crabby Jack’s General Store. Start your adventure with lots of shopping and end it with a big meal at Crooked Hammock Brewery. It’s the perfect place to shop on your vacation.

Speaking of Hammocks…
South Carolina has a special relationship with geography. This climate makes it perfect to have a ton of trees near the beach. As one would expect, this means people immediately made hammocks on the beach a cultural touchstone. With that in mind, it makes total sense that they would have a shopping center called The Hammock Shops Village. It also makes sense that the flagship shop here is the Original Hammock Shop. Don’t worry though, there are a total of 21 different shops to stop at while you’re there. There’s a lovely playground to entertain the little ones while you get to lighten the weight of your wallet. Plus the two onsite restaurants, Local and BisQit are fantastic for the whole family. The Hammocks Shops Village is a great place to let your skin recover from the inevitable sunburn from the beach days.
