Georgetown County, SC

Known historically as Colonial Rice Plantation Country, Georgetown carries centuries of early colonial history as the third oldest city of South Carolina. Pawley’s Island is a barrier island which was a colonial beach retreat established before the revolution! Rice planters maintained summer homes there to escape the heat, insects and humidity of their inland plantations. Because of its tranquil beauty many tycoons of the last century established family enclaves here. The Vanderbilt’s, Huntington’s, and Barouche's were prominent property owners who preserved their estates for wildlife, cultural, and research sanctuaries. Thus, Brookgreen Gardens, the largest outdoor sculpture gallery in the United States, was established and surrounded by thousands of acres of scenic low country land.

Placid and serene, Georgetown County offers many of the beach and golfing experiences as Horry County but in a more casual, laid back style. Because the quality of life is so rich, many compare the “Waccamaw Neck” region of Georgetown County to other coastal resort destinations of Hilton Head. As a result, The Communities of Pawley’s Island, Litchield Beach and Murrells Inlet offer a seaside community atmosphere that appeals to families and retirees seeking a piece of earthly heaven. Due to the growth and up-scale demographics of those relocating here this community offers a variety of commercial and development opportunities for astute investors.
