It’s not surprising, because Georgetown has all the right ingredients to foster a great lifestyle.

For Missouri natives Fred and Jackie Hoelscher, the friendships they’ve made have been great. “I have discovered that this town has a nice mixture of southerners and northerners,” laughed Mr. Hoeschler. “This has been a very friendly move for us.”

It’s no wonder. Georgetown County includes Murrells Inlet and the sparkling beaches at Litchfield and Pawleys Island; further south are Georgetown’s charming Harborwalk and historic district.

Natives and new residents enjoy an ambience that easily becomes a way of life – plucking oysters from beds around the inlets and reveling in the bounty of five rivers, beaches and great golf courses.

The area features natural and cultural attractions. More than a half-million people annually come to Huntington Beach State Park for a variety of nature programs, including spying on the 200+ species of birds that share the habitat.

One attraction is the Moorish-style castle, Atalaya, built by philanthropist Archer Huntington in the 1930s. Nearby Brookgreen Gardens draws almost 200,000 people a year to its sculpture gardens, nature trails and cultural programs.

For history buffs, let’s start with this: In the 1700s, this place was a thriving seaport that attracted the likes of Blackbeard and his colleagues. There was much to plunder, perhaps because the area was teeming with successful plantations.

Nearby Pawleys Island has its own resident ghost in the Gray Man, who appears to warn of impending storms. “Ghosts” of the more recent past return to the annual Pawleys Pavilion Reunion.

This is where the shag, South Carolina’s state dance, was practiced religiously in the ‘50s. The island’s well-known motto, “arrogantly shabby,” can be seen on local bumper stickers.

The county works hard to preserve its heritage but it also has a vision for the future that focuses on providing economic balance and planned growth. The port of Georgetown is a vital aspect of that arena, as is the 950-acre Industrial Park.

Major employers include International Paper Company, and the State Ports Authority. A multi-use bike and walking path stretches 27 miles from Murrells Inlet to nearby Prince George.

“We want to preserve the elements that have made people want to move here, and, at the same time, offer employment opportunities for all ages,” says Sel Hemingway, Chairman of Georgetown County Council.
