Getting out on the water is one of the top activities when you visit Georgetown, whether it’s a low-impact paddle on a gentle blackwater river, a ghost tour in the historic district or an offshore charter for some serious fishing. Of course, you can also head up Highway 17 and play some of the best golf courses in the Grand Strand.
