Last Friday, six of us ladies set off on a day trip to Georgetown, South Carolina, which is off Highway 17 between Myrtle Beach and Charleston.
It is the third oldest city in SC, the county seat of Georgetown County, in the Lowcountry, with a population of less than 10,000. The historic downtown area with its live oak lined streets has beautiful stately homes, a wonderful harbor, waterfront dining, and many quaint shopping opportunities.
There are also plenty of waterfront doors, including the boat with the skeleton hanging above the door or the opportunity to purchase fresh shrimp right from the boat.. 🙂
In an effort to support the local economy, we shopped at several stores, had a delicious lunch at the River Room, and after a walk on the harbor enjoyed a dish of wonderful home-made ice cream at Sweeties Sweets. I must confess I also bought some pralines to take home. Those pralines reminded us of visiting Savannah without the mileage.
If you’re ever planning a trip to South Carolina, a day in Georgetown should be a must on your list of things to do. It showcases the historic beauty of South Carolina at its very best. And, if you can, take along a few friends, you’ll have a lot of laughs along the way. 🙂
