Historic Georgetown

Historic Georgetown South Carolina is a waterfront community easily accessible by land or sea. It is a beautiful hidden town just off of route 17 between Myrtle Beach and Charleston. By sea, this harbor is great stopover along the ICW. You won’t want to pass it by. You will be pleasantly surprised.

As the 3rd oldest seaport in the country and is filled with history, charm and personality. In this harbor, you will be happy to find that a small town such as this still exists. The people are warm, welcoming, and will treat you with their southern hospitality. The stores, restaurants and tours are locally owned and are not part of any big chain so you will get a real feel for this wonderful town..

Downtown Historic Georgetown SC is a must visit destination for waterfront shopping, dining, boating, fishing, historic tours, and ghost tours. On Front Street, you will find some of the best shopping around for furniture, clothing, shoes, gifts, housewares, jewelry and more. There are great restaurants serving Lowcountry cuisine, fresh fish, Italian, Pizza and Sushi on Front Street and along the Harborwalk/boardwalk. It is also well worth the time to visit the museums and take a tour to learn about the area's history. Check out the events calendar and partake in our fun festivals, parades, and things to do. Also, remember to bring your camera to capture some of the best photographic opportunities in the south.

** As you may have heard, Georgetown suffered from a fire on September 25, 2013 but we are well on our way to recovery. Contrary to rumors, Georgetown did not burn down, the fire was contained to the middle of the 700 block. Five businesses were destroyed and all but two have relocated to other blocks along Front St. The Harborwalk is also fully intact and open to walk along the full length of the waterfront. All public docks are structurally sound and open and all marinas are fully functioning and open.

In other words, don't hesitate to visit Georgetown, we are open for business! It's a wonderful friendly stopover along the ICW or on Rt. 17 between Charleston and Myrtle Beach. Click here for directions so you don't miss it!
