Hard to remember what shops are there, but there's plenty of restaurants right there. What kind of group do you have? Bummz is an oceanfront restaurant/bar that's a lot of fun and has entertainment and right up the street there's River City Cafe (GREAT for families), Soho sushi bar (more of a couples, younger crowd type place) and Dirty Don's raw bar (small place). If you get up to King's Hwy...probably 2 blocks away...there's a few more options as well.

You can walk straight up 21st Ave. N. (about 15 minutes or so) to Broadway at the Beach (www.broadwayatthebeach.com), a massive complex with numerous restaurants, hundreds of shops, a Ripley's Aquarium, movie complex and a great mini-golf course. It would take you an entire day to cover the grounds. Also, across the street is Coastal Field where the Myrtle Beach Pelicans (a Braves A-ball farm team) play. Great fun for the family in a newer old-style park. Well worth the walk to both and sidewalks all the way up 21st.

no offense to uacturbo but I would never consider walking to BATB unless there was no other choice at all.. It is about a 1.5 mile walk and you have to cross US 17 a very busy 6-8 lane road with very heavy traffic and there are not sidewalks on some of it.. (but it is close)

As far as shops you have all of the local surf shops and tourist trap shops on Ocean Blvd in the strip area. There is a bungee sling ride just down the street, Ripleys Believe it or Not museum is there along with the mirror maze and haunted house.. The Gay Doplhin shop is a must tons of junk but fun lolol, ice cream shops, The New Boardwalk area, The Bowery is at the end of the strip area..

Someone mentioned River City Cafe, also accross the street (literaly) is a Starbucks, Ice cream shope and pizza place..and Bummz is next door for the adults.
