A brief overview of Georgetown SC

   Where to start? I guess the beginning is the best and only place. For those of you that don't know (most of you I suppose) this is my first blog. I have been in the local real estate market here in Georgetown SC for a few years and I am finally starting to blog in the hopes of sharing relevant info that people will find useful. I have lived in the Georgetown SC area all my life (except for a 4 year stint in the USMC) and love the laid back lifestyle the area provides. Located directly between Charleston and Myrtle beach SC Georgetown has many unique features that are only found here. The first are the people. Not to brag but Georgetown has the friendliest people I have had the pleasure of coming in contact with. It is not uncommon for complete strangers to speak to one another in passing and if your stopped on the side of the road don't be surprised if 2 or 3 people stop to make sure your OK. Another thing that keeps me here is the beauty. With lush forest and pristine beaches this area is truly a wonder to behold. Georgetown county has several rivers that provide everything from fishing to kayaking and just plain relaxing in some of the most beautiful scenery you can imagine. The city of Georgetown (located on the coast in almost the center of Georgetown county) dates back to 1729. The Historic district has a palpable air of historic significance that is reminiscent of downtown Savannah GA. There are many Historic features I can go into, but for the sake of time and brevity I will only list them briefly. The Harbourwalk, Rice museum, town clock, Kaminski house and many Historic Churches all add to the history and beauty of the town. There is much more to delve into about the town but I think we will leave that to another day. Suffice it to say that if you are on a southern trip and have a little time it is well worth the effort to visit. If you visit don't be surprised if you want to stay, many have. It truly is a great place to live and I feel privileged living here.
