When you take a vacation at Long Bay Resort, our location on the Myrtle Beach oceanfront puts you within easy reach of not only an array of Grand Strand attractions and all that Myrtle Beach’s downtown district has to offer, but also some of the best shopping on the South Carolina coast. And one of the area’s top destinations among shopaholics — Tanger Outlets — offers not just one, but two sprawling locations within 15 minutes of the resort.
With one outlet center 5 miles north of Long Bay Resort just off Highway 17, and another just off Highway 501 about 10 miles inland from the resort, Tanger Outlets is a national chain of retail centers that brings together popular name-brand stores and mom-and-pop shops, all in a single location for shopper convenience. Because the outlet stores allow manufacturers to sell products directly to consumers without the typical retail middleman, they are able to offer deep discounts to shoppers.
The outlets feature entire stores devoted to single big-name brands, and the vast majority of products available to consumers at Tanger Outlets is both in-season and of the highest quality. Here, consumers can shop for brand-name designer fashions for the entire family, as well as jewelry, housewares, home décor, luggage, books, specialty foods, kitchen needs and much more.
The Highway 501 outlet center located near Myrtle Beach Speedway features 75-plus stores and includes anchor retailers such as Adidas, Columbia, VF Outlet, Under Armour, Polo Ralph Lauren, Coach and Nike. The Highway 17 outlet center located near Myrtle Beach Mall features nearly 100 stores, and anchor tenants include H&M, Gap, Banana Republic, Under Armour, Old Navy, Polo Ralph Lauren and VF Outlet.
At either outlet center, shoppers can fuel their bargain-hunting blitzes with delicious meals and sweet treats. Restaurants at the Highway 501 location include Outback Steakhouse, Ruby Tuesday and Highway 55 Burgers, Shakes and Fries, while those seeking smaller bites can visit The Fudgery, Nestle Toll House Café/Haagen Dazs, the Candy Barrel or Auntie Anne’s Pretzel Perfect. At the Highway 17 location, full meals can be found at Charley’s Grilled Subs, Famous Wok, Five Guys Burgers and Fries, Steak n’ Shake or Stillhouse BBQ, while snacks and sweets are available at Auntie Anne’s Pretzel Perfect, Ben & Jerry’s, Harry & David, Starbucks and The Fudgery.
After a long day of retail therapy at either of the nearby Tanger Outlets locations, head back to your comfortable accommodations at Long Bay Resort for some rest and relaxation. Enjoy our wide-ranging amenities with on-site activities such as splashing around in one of our indoor or outdoor pools; take a stroll along the beach in the resort’s backyard; or soak in the coastal scenery from your private oceanfront balcony — they’re all great ways to end a successful day of bargain hunting on the Grand Strand.
