Georgetown is a charming waterfront community located just off of Highway 17, halfway between Myrtle Beach and Charleston. By boat, you can dock in the harbor, accessible by the Intracoastal Waterway.
Downtown Historic Georgetown is the third oldest city in the state of South Carolina and a must-stop for waterfront shopping, dining, boating, fishing and, of course, historic tours (including ghost tours). A stroll along Front Street and the Harborwalk reveals museums; unique, locally owned stores selling high-end furniture, books, toys, clothing, shoes, gifts, housewares, jewelry and more; and restaurants and cafes serving up Lowcountry cuisine, fresh fish, Italian, pizza and sushi.
Additional sites and attractions that would be located near your property and place of business include:
*Plantation River Tours: Cruise on The Waccamaw Lady to learn about the history, mystery and legends and Rice Plantations that once graced the Georgetown river banks.
*Hobcaw Barony: Tour this natural preserve and wildlife refuge, which was also the winter residence of presidential advisor and Wall Street millionaire Bernard M. Baruch.

Other Howcaw highlights include the grounds and stables of Bellefield Plantation, a ride through the only existing slave street left on the Waccamaw Neck and a stroll along a salt marsh boardwalk.
