Market Common is Myrtle Beach's Newest Hot Spot


There’s a new “must do” on your Myrtle Beach golf trip – the Market Common complex on the former Myrtle Beach Air Force Base.

Once a vacant reminder of the Air Force’s half-century presence on the Grand Strand, the old base has been transformed into a city landscape filled with shopping, dining and entertainment.

Whether your Myrtle Beach golf group is looking for a night of fine dining or a place that is as famous as its drinks as its food, Market Common has you covered.

Fine dining establishments include: Tommy Bahama’s Restaurant & Bar, which combines the popular clothier’s fashion with good food; P.F. Chang's offers an Asian-fusion flavor to its fare; Divine Prime is a locally owned steakhouse that is among the area’s best; and Roy & Sid’s offers an array of flavors to give dinners with picky palates plenty of places to choose from.

For those with more low-key taste buds, King Street Grill has become a popular hangout. Beer lovers should check out Gordon Biersch, a brew pub that offers proven and experimental beers and food that are inspired by the hand-crafted concoctions, and Nacho Hippo is a place to eat and party.

Shopping is the main draw for many who visit Market Common. Featuring more than 80 stores that include exclusive retailers, Market Common offers the feel of a downtown shopping district. Stores include Ann Taylor, Fossil, Justice, Orvis, Coldwater Creek and Victoria's Secret, so there's something for everyone on your shopping list.

Market Common also has many of the amenities you would expect to find in a mall - a theater, a spa and ice cream - so you can take a relaxing break after a day on your favorite Myrtle Beach golf course.

The complex is also a short drive or long driver from Whispering Pines. For longtime golfers on the Grand Strand or newcomers, put Market Common on your to-do list.
