A souvenir is a keepsake item that serves as a reminder for your wonderful time spent on vacation. When you travel to Myrtle Beach, you're sure to find the memory-holding souvenir that is perfect for you, so that you can bring home a little piece of the beach. Here are our Top 10 Souvenirs to Take Home From Your Myrtle Beach Vacation:
For the cost of a few coins, create your own Myrtle Beach souvenir when you find one of the many Penny Press machines scattered throughout the Grand Strand. You can currently make your own penny souvenir at any of the following locations: Pirates Voyage, Original Benjamin's, Alligator Adventure, Gay Dolphin, Peaches Corner, Broadway at the Beach- Dragon's Lair Mini-Golf and Visitor's Center. Frame your penny, so you can put it on display when you return home!
We have to admit that it's very difficult to walk past any Airbrush T-Shirt shop in Myrtle Beach without making a purchase. Get your own custom-made souvenir t-shirt at a variety of stores, including several near Ocean Boulevard and the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, as well as Broadway at the Beach. Have your favorite character or even your own caricature put on your new souvenir, and then wear it home!
What's a trip to the beach without bringing back seashells? Spend some time walking the beach to find all sizes, shapes, and colors of seashells that have washed ashore from the Atlantic Ocean. Try scouring the less crowded beaches away from the heart of the city to find areas that may have more seashells to collect. Take a less traditional route, and visit the Gay Dolphin Gift Shop on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk to find an assortment of various shells, as well as huge Conch shells that will have you hearing the sounds of the beach for years to come!
Even if you travel to Myrtle Beach in the Summer, we know you'll still be thinking about your beach vacation when the holidays arrive. Bring home a Myrtle Beach ornament, so you can relive your travels as you put up your Christmas decorations! If you're on the North end, visit Callahan's (St. Nick Nack's) in Calabash, where you will find thousands of ornaments to take home. This souvenir shop features dozens of completely decorated, full-size Christmas trees, Christmas village items, and of course, countless ornaments. If you're in the central Myrtle Beach area, visit Christmas Mouse for seasonal decor and souvenirs that will give you beach vibes even in the heart of Winter!
