The Shoppes on Front Street

Stroll the Harborwalk and discover a wide collection of art-filled galleries, charming shops and fantastic restaurants. Visit the Rice Museum, take in a history tour, or head to the waterfront for a ride on the harbor.

Mere miles and whole worlds from amusement parks, high-rises, theaters and sprawling shopping malls, the historic city of Georgetown rises in antebellum grace. Established in 1732, Georgetown is South Carolina's third oldest city. The oak-lined avenues of this "little Charleston" city boast group tour treasures for even the most discriminating travelers. The riverfront is alive with activity and history. Dining, shopping and scenery reign supreme.

The Harborwalk is a charming waterfront boardwalk between two of Georgetown's most historically significant buildings, the Kaminski House (c. 1760) and the Rice Museum (originally the Old Market Building, c. 1842). Overlooking the Sampit River Harbor, the boardwalk is lined with restaurants, galleries, antique shops and specialty stores.

Shoppers have more than 30 specialty shops to browse. A potpourri of art galleries and quaint shops with Lowcountry names offer a treasure trove of books, clothes, fine art, jewelry, crafts, cards and antiques.

There are several ways to see the rest of Georgetown. Historic attractions such as the Kaminski House and the Rice Museum complement a staggering concentration of 50-plus antebellum mansions, a few of which are operated as charming bed and breakfast inns. Guided or self-guided historical tours are readily available.

A favorite way to see Georgetown is by boat. A selection of tours will take you in and around Winyah Bay and the surrounding rivers, past plantation mansions and long-abandoned rice fields. For a delightful change of pace, hop a ride to a remote barrier island for shell collecting and a look at the North Island Lighthouse.
