Myrtle Beach shopping places are as varied as the number of seafood restaurants at the beach. You are only limited by the amount of time you have to shop and possibly the budget.
For example, my husband and I love to visit Myrtle beach and usually stay on the north end. We probably spend more time shopping than we do on the beach if we are being honest.
We love Barefoot Landing, Broadway at the Beach, Tanger Outlets, and never miss driving up to Callahan’s of Calabash to browse the Christmas store.
I found a lovely set of red dishes at the Roses store on Hwy. 17 in North Myrtle Beach a few years ago. If you are not familiar with Roses, it’s a discount variety store similar to Walmart but has been around a lot longer.
