The Myrtle Beach area is a shopper’s paradise! Retail therapy is must to help you and your wardrobe feel fresh and new. Come and discover the many different shopping options available. You’re sure to find something that’s just right for any taste.
The Tanger Outlets are a great place to find awesome deals. In the non-summer season, you can sign up to take one of our shuttle buses to the Tanger Outlets.
There are two Tanger Outlet malls within driving distance. The closest is on 501, a 15-20 minute drive from Plantation Resort. This is the location offered with our shuttle service. Stores include American Eagle Outfitters, Chico’s Outlet, Nike factory Outlet, Banana Republic Factory Store, Forever 21, and more! Click here to see a full list of the stores at this location.

2. Crafts on Friday Morning
Arriving on Thursday gives you a chance to start your women’s weekend off right. Sleep in on Friday morning and then visit us in the Activity Center to enjoy arts and crafts! Fridays we make adorable Mason jar lanterns at 11:30 am. Painting beer or wine glasses begins at 12:30 pm. We offer ribbon, burlap, color tints and much more for the jars, and gorgeous paints for your personal and uniquely decorated wine or beer glass. Both crafts are $7 or less. You create a beautiful, handmade souvenir to bring back from your girls’ weekend out, and it’s so much fun to make them together. See the latest schedule activities here.
