Approximately 60 miles north of Charleston, Georgetown is a city steeped in history. It is the third oldest city in South Carolina and the downtown historic district contains more than fifty homes, public buildings, and sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The heart of the historic district is Front Street, which has something for everyone – from restaurants and bakeries to gift shops and clothing stores as well as the Harborwalk for strolling.
But Georgetown is more than just the historic district. It is boating paradise, located on Winyah Bay at the confluence of the Black, Great Pee Dee, Waccamaw, and Sampit rivers and adjacent to North Inlet, a National Estuarine Research Reserve with some of the most pristine salt water on the east coast. The coast line is protected from development forever with 18,000 acres on Hobcaw Barony that was donated by the Baruch family to the state for education and research uses.
