Get a Jump on Your Christmas Shopping 

Myrtle Beach is home to tons of great places to shop, so why not get away and get a jump on your shopping? 

Broadway at the Beach and Barefoot Landing are both home to tons of specialty stores and boutiques perfect for unique gifts you won’t find anywhere else. Restaurants and entertainment opportunities abound at both of these popular complexes, so you can spend an entire day at either location.

Big Box stores are located throughout the Grand Strand with their Black Friday sales starting as early as Thanksgiving Day.
