Golf, shop and be merry in Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach practically invented the golf package, and that's typically a bundled discount deal on hotel rooms and greens fees. But thinking outside of that box for just a minute, Myrtle Beach's golf package truly contains much more than you see inside the usual parcel. It includes great shopping and dining, activities and entertainment, and that's setting aside for the moment its most significant attribute -- the beach.

You can spend an entire week on the Grand Strand attending to the must-see items on your list and never even glimpse the ocean. Golf courses proliferate in a region that has been called the Golf Coast because you can play in this mild climate through most seasons of the year, and because the area contains something in the range of 100 courses, many of them oceanfront or on the banks of the Intracoastal Waterway or occupying moss-draped terrain formerly belonging to gracious antebellum plantations.

You might find some great gift shops at the major golf courses as well as golf stores at the shopping venues, so that the golfing and shopping come together for those couples who might otherwise head off in separate directions.

Casual shoppers in Myrtle Beach browse the cute little boutiques along Ocean Boulevard, at Broadway at the Beach, at Barefoot Landing, and numerous other little pockets throughout the region, seeking souvenirs and art objects. The very serious shoppers hit the big bargain outlet malls and the flea markets in a single-minded search for deep discounts on designer jeans and athletic footwear. International visitors are lured in by the promise of name-brand factory outlets, and many of them wind up buying luggage to haul off their prizes.

Realizing you can't do it all during a week's vacation or even in an entire summer season, it pays to review the golfing and shopping opportunities listed below - by no means a complete list - and set some realistic goals for whatever time you have allotted to the siren call of the Grand Strand.
