Hilton Head's picturesque shopping centers, national retailers and outlets meet the needs of travelers and residents. Visitors enjoy browsing souvenir and specialty shops at several waterfront locales such as South Beach Marina, home of the famous Salty Dog Café and T-Shirt Factory. In addition to t-shirts and other standard souvenirs, you'll find plenty of places on the island to shop for fine art, books and furniture. Among the stores by the marina at Harbour Town, you'll find a toy store, gift and souvenir shops, clothing stores and an art gallery. The only local indoor mall, the Mall at Shelter Cove, offers convenient one-stop shopping, and the great deals you'll find on merchandise from your favorite brands make the drive to Tanger Outlet Stores in Bluffton worthwhile. Near the entrance to the island, a number of major chains such as Target and Barnes & Noble are available.
