Barefoot Landing (www.bflanding.com) is like a big outdoor mall. It has a lake in the middle of it and the shops go around the lake with a couple bridges in the middle. It has about 100 shops and several restaurants. It kept us busy all day!
If you like to shop, this is a must. Some of the stores are: Anything Joe's, All About My Beer, Barefoot Candles, Peace Frogs, and Scrappin' Barefoot. Food: Crab House, Johnny Rockets, Joe's Crab Shack, and many more. We went to Johnny Rockets for lunch and Crab House for supper. Definitely recommend either of them.

Barefoot Landing is an upscale shopping complex that has a rather nice relaxing atmosphere. It has a rustic, nautical decor which makes it nice to walk around and enjoy the atmosphere even if you are not there to shop. The walkways are made of wood to look like a pier, so it gives that beachy feeling as you listen to the wood creak with each footstep.
There are also many unique but expensive shops to see if you like shopping, browsing, or window shopping. The window shopping and browsing are free, of course, and with most of the prices here, that is what we did! Most of the shops offer unique items at a price to match. Many of the shops had a beachy theme with rustic nautically decor or nautical things for sale. Not all the shops were pricey though, so you may be able to find the unique treasure at a reasonable price, ready to take home with you.
There is a nice big lake in the middle of the complex with a long wooden bridge going across the middle. You can buy fish food from the little gumball type vending machine. It's like little pebbles of dog food, but the fish love it! We had the most fun watching and feeding the fish! A school of big carp live in the lake and are always waiting for food to descend upon them. When they see people on the bridge, they come over to see if there will be food. When the food starts landing in the water they swarm over each other to get it, even jumping out of the water and laying on top of each other. You can tell they are used to being fed.
There are several restaurants that make good choices for lunch or dinner options, some have a seafood theme, some have outdoor dining. It is nice for a relaxing afternoon or evening activity. Some offer nighttime entertainment.

The shops, outlets, and restaurants are divided into four separate shopping areas reminiscent of an old fishing village. All are connected by a boardwalk system that includes three pedestrian bridges spanning the lake. There are more than 100 specialty shops, 13 factory direct stores, 15 restaurants and dining facilities, and 11 entertainment attractions.
It’s very difficult to give an adequate evaluation of the multitude and shops and activities in a 500-word report. One really needs to check out the Barefoot Landing website to get a good understanding of the various shops and attractions here. You can get to the website by going to the following link:
The father-in-law and I had two favorite shops that piqued our interest: (1) The Bible Factory Outlet, and (2) Tools and More. In the first, I picked up a copy of Matthew Henry’s Bible Commentary for around $14 and my father-in-law bought a copy of the works of Josephus for about the same price. The Tools and More shop was quite interesting, too. Remember all those TV specialty ads claiming the items "can’t be bought in any store"? Well, don’t believe it, because many of the items were available here.

Also included in the shopping plaza were tigers. Yes, tigers. And birds. The tigers were amazing. We actually got to get our picture taken with a tiger cub. You could also get your picture made with a full-size tiger or pay (quite a bit) for a few minutes in a room with several tiger cubs and get it filmed on a video camera.
If you are in the Myrtle Beach area and would like to have a whole lot of shopping fun, I suggest you definitely visit Barefoot Landing!
