102 THINGS TO DO IN MYRTLE BEACH

64. Hammock Shops Village

The Hammock Shop Villages of Pawleys Island offer a unique shopping and dining experience to the south of Myrtle Beach in the shabby chic town of Pawleys Island.

Enveloped in oaks and pines, the Hammock Shops feature winding brick paths through cottage-style stores. Visitors are treated to a real Lowcountry experience complete with the Southern charm and hospitality of Pawleys Island.

Shopping

A must-stop shop is the place that started it all — The Original Hammock Shop, home of the Pawleys Island rope hammock. The hand-woven hammocks got their start in the 1800s, designed by a riverboat captain looking for a cool, comfortable bed on his boat. The shop dates back to the 1930s, and the hammocks have become a symbol of this Lowcountry attraction. The Hammock Shops Village offers way more than hammocks, though. More than 20 unique shops call the village home, selling all kinds of gifts, art, clothes and more.

Dining

Be sure to bring your appetite on your visit to the Hammock Shops. Several eateries serve up Southern delights to fill your belly. BisQit serves scratch-made biscuits at breakfast and a full menu of burgers and salads for lunch and dinner. Check out the spiked shakes for a tasty adult treat! If you’re looking for something even more low-key, stop by Island Dogs for a hot dog or sandwich. NOSH offers an upscale — yet still casual — option for dinner with an extensive menu inspired by Italian and Mediterranean flavors.
