Can't say enough great things about this location. After a few days of the same stretch of restaurants, souvenir shops, and predictable huge crowds at Broadway at the beach.....this was a breath of fresh air. Beautiful scenery. Beautiful homes. Great restaurants. We loved Market Common and Gordon Biersch so much, we went back for a second night and visited Tupelo... More

Aside from several great places to eat, there is a nice theater and good shopping! It was nice to rake a break from the sand, eat dinner at Nacho Hippo, see a movie, and then browse through Barnes and Noble.

We like visiting here for Nacho Hippo! While there we browse the shops which are higher end than you will find elsewhere in MB. A great Piggly Wiggly grocery is there, too. There's an expansive area to let kids run and a great playground.

Of the 3 shopping areas we visited, this was the best. Parking was easy and along the shoppes. At least one side of the street was in the shade. We particularly like the Tommy Bahama shop and the local B&N.

Market Common was the most "civilized" non-touristy spot was visited in Myrtle Beach. Nice restaurants and shops, Barnes & Noble and just pleasantly quiet compared to every place else. This is probably not the place frequented by the people who save up all year to come to Myrtle Beach. The restaurants are more upscale and trendy, as are the shops,... More

The Market common is fairly new in North Myrtle Beach. We stopped at dusk one night during out August 2016 vacation. A lot of the stores were closed or closing but it is beautiful there. It is like a city in itself. We saw people getting horse and buggy rides thru the streets. Many nice high end stores, boutiques, and... More

This is a very clean, nice, and attractive place to visit. However, men, other then eating or the movies there's NOTHING here store-wise for you. Not even a watch store. Get a bench with the other men and wait while the wife/girls visit all the little stores just pay expensive prices for unique trinkets. Parking is in a garage or... More

This is a very nice, well-kept area. Very modern-looking. It's a nice mix of retail shopping and restaurants with residential living mixed in. It's kind of like a little town or village. Definitely worth checking out just to walk around and window shop, if nothing else.

Good upscale place to eat and shop away from the blvd! You must walk outdoors so not good for rainy days. This good for shopping, eating, bars, with some galleries. Nice place. Plenty of benches to rest on outside too.

While at the Huge Softball Complex across the street we drove through looking for something quick to eat for my teenager, we only drove through first street and there is no fast food chains just fancy probably pricey restaurants. However parking inside area appeared to be covered and you get out and walk the stores which was just so dainty... More
