Myrtle Beach for Mom & Dad

Myrtle Beach is an exceptional destination for families. With a variety of options for entertaining the kids, the Grand Strand has tucked away a little secret that Mom, Dad & Grandparents should discover. The Market Common is an urban village, positioned off Farrow Parkway and is a lovely location for shopping, dining, strolling, catching a movie and so much more! See http://www.marketcommonmb.com.
From the strategically placed fountains to the colorful and well-maintained landscaping, visitors are encouraged to linger in rocking chairs, on benches or at a variety of tables & chairs. The shoppers can relax as they take a break from exploring everything that the Market Common has to offer.
There are easily recognizable chain stores, along with adorable boutiques that proud local owners have established. The streets represent a mini-town that is clean, upscale and pleasant. The residents and guests of this charming community have almost everything they need at their fingertips and within walking distance.

With ongoing activities and events that include musical entertainment, Movies Under the Stars, a farmers’ market from May through October and horse & carriage rides, the Market Common always has something happening.

A new addition for 2014 is a lovely pool & lazy river complex for residents and guests that looks mighty inviting on a hot summer day!

Danny Kuhn, resident of the Market Common, said, “What I love most about living in the Market Common is the proximity of almost everything I need.  It has shopping, dining, movies, books, park, gym, and recreation center, all within just a short walk.  On my bicycle, I can have my toes in the water at Springmaid Pier in 7 minutes.  Some weeks, I don't even get into my car until it's time for church on Sunday, avoiding the summertime traffic.   And, increasingly, the Market Common is trying to promote special events on a larger scale.  It was great this year to attend a fun, outdoor New Year's Eve celebration and just walk a couple of blocks home when it was all over."

When you’ve had enough of the beach, miniature golf and all of the typical tourist attractions, plan an amazing stop for the grownups at the Market Common. You deserve it!

I'll be back soon with more fun things to do in the Myrtle Beach area!
Pack up your car, and come along to visit. Don't forget the golf clubs.
