Georgetown is a great day trip from Myrtle Beach

We signed up for Capt Rod's 3 hour plantation river cruise which left the Georgetown dock at noon. We arrived early and I am so glad we did. Geurgetown has a very nice historic District along Front st and the harbourwalk. We ate breakfast at Thomas's cake and it was outstanding the omelete's and hash browns were great. Georgetown is pretty quaint and has more pre revolutionary buildings then Williamsburg VA.It has quite a few bars and restaurants overlooking the Harbourwalk and water and it's just a great town to stroll around and visit little shops,etc. I would highly recommend taking the 35-40 minute drive and spend the day. In fact today they are having Rock the Equinox with 11 bands and 2 stages set up downtown.

Perhaps we walked right by each other! We were there yesterday and had lunch at Portofinos-was great! We especially love the big furniture store there!

Such a lovely town and a very short drive from the action in Myrtle Beach.

Agreed! The houses remind me of Charleston, and the people are so friendly and proud of their town. I enjoyed the River restaurant, Rice Paddy and Land's End. There's a lot of history there, too. Michele Obama's father grew up in Georgetown and many of her relatives still live there. She visited often as a little girl and has returned as first lady. The Jewish community began in the 1700s -- the Jewish cemetary was founded more than 200 years ago and the small synagogue was built over 100 years ago!
