This is the place to go when you are in Myrtle Beach. It is beautiful in its design with multiple restaurants, movie theater, Barnes and Noble, excellent boutique shops, a small live theater (Stage Left), the best cupcake shop in the universe (Le Cupcake Cafe), wonderful crepes at Crepes Creation Cafe. There are often free activities, like Friday night outdoor... More

Quaint, beautiful community-style shopping area with many restaurant options. Best feature is the free parking. Went here with my husband, my adult child and 2 teen children. The stores (except Barnes & Noble) were not our taste or enough of a draw for us, however I would return with just my husband to try out one of the restaurants.

Great place to visit. Go to Nacho Hippo! We think the piggly wiggly here is the best grocery store on the beach. Nice shops, too. And a great playground for young ones.

When I first moved here I was in an apartment and going to Market Common was like my yard. I would sit on the rocking chairs and visit with my friends and then enjoy a great meal. I still go there so much, movies, dinner, shopping and of course, Barnes and Nobel. I could hang there all day! Its a... More

It is nice that Myrtle Beach has a cleaner more upscale area to shop and eat at. We stayed at the south end of the strip so the Market Common was very close. During our week stay we enjoyed Tupelo Honey, Ultimate California Pizza, and the Piggly Wiggly. After dinner it is nice to walk the streets and let our... More

The location is a little out of the way and back near a small airport. This is more of an upscale shopping area, quiet, and a few places to eat. They have a nice movie theater in the area as well. Clean, well kept environment.

I love that not many people know about this place! It is tucked away out of the business of Myrtle Beach. It was a great surprise when we found out about it. There are lots of stores and restaurants. There is always a movie theatre and a park for walking. This place is a must go to when we travel... More

Finally someone decided to build some restaurants that aren't geared towards quantity and more towards quality. Much better selection of restaurants than anywhere else in the area.

It did look nice, but too spread out for my liking, especially if you didn't have that much time. The shops were at the higher end of the scale, but apart from a couple of niche shops, not much going on. Food is a big part of this place. I suppose it is more for the locals - it has... More

Love this area. Outdoor shopping and great restaurants. We ate outside and it was so relaxing. This area is fairly new and we actually came across it by accident. Definitely want to go back.
