“Where life is good.” That’s more than just a slogan in Georgetown County. It’s why visitors keep coming back here year after year — many eventually calling it home — and why so many of those who were born here never want to leave.
Located on the coast of South Carolina, Georgetown County is home to a wealth of history and culture, and some of the state’s most beautiful beaches, marshes and rivers. Whether your thing is lazing on the beach, enjoying an ocean breeze from a porch rocking chair, or something a bit more active, Georgetown County has something to appeal to everyone.
With the Atlantic Ocean, Winyah Bay, and five rivers, plus creeks and inlets, Georgetown County can offer a range of water-related activities including fresh water or deep sea fishing, paddle boarding, boating, canoeing, kayaking, parasailing and surfing.
One of the best things about Georgetown County is that our beaches aren’t crowded. From the old-fashioned simplicity of “arrogantly shabby” Pawleys Island, to the more contemporary surroundings of Litchfield beaches, visitors can choose the atmosphere and pace that best suit them. We also have beaches within gated communities. Shell-gathering tours can be booked to undeveloped barrier islands, one of which is home to the Georgetown Lighthouse.
