One of the best kept secrets in the state

Ask a local, and they may well tell you Georgetown is one of the best kept secrets in South Carolina. The 3rd oldest town in the state, and brimming with history and Southern hospitality, it charms visitors with its tranquil, waterfront community appeal. Located halfway between Myrtle Beach and Charleston, the historic downtown district has plenty of Georgetown vacation rentals located on pretty tree-lined streets. Spend your days deep sea fishing for tuna and sailfish and return to the mainland to gorge on Lowcountry cuisine and freshly caught seafood. Georgetown doesn't disappoint.

Reel in a marlin or watch playful dolphins

Activities in Georgetown center around the ocean. Wake up at your waterfront Georgetown vacation rental and jump on board one of the charter boats to reel in a marlin, tuna or swordfish. You may not know it, but the coast of Georgetown is one of the best spots for scuba diving in the state. Don your flippers and mask and head down into the depths to swim around shipwrecks and artificial reefs packed with colorful marine life. If that's not your thing, back on board you can watch the dolphins jump and play in the boat's wake or pump up the adrenaline on jet skis.

Years of rich Southern history waiting to be explored

Whether you're looking for a family break or romantic getaway, Georgetown's got you covered. Throughout the summer, the Francis Marion Park has outdoor concerts and theater productions. Alternatively, you can visit one of the historic museums including the Georgetown County Museum which offers a look back over the last 300 years of American history. Rice has always been a staple in South Carolina, and the Rice Museum houses exhibits and articles that depict the importance of the crop. If you visit just one museum however, make it the Maritime Museum, which highlights the state's rich ocean faring history.

Eat outside, even in winter

The Georgetown vacation rentals are open for business all year round, though they are best booked in the summer months when the climate is hot and the cool Atlantic Ocean draws in water-seeking visitors. The summer seems to last longer in this part of the world and pushes on right through to October when the heat tapers off somewhat. Don't let this put you off. The winters months can be pleasantly warm, enough so as to allow for eating outside on many days if you wear a light sweater, and the quieter season can be wonderfully peaceful.

A bird lover's paradise

Just a short drive from Georgetown vacation rentals you'll find the vast Francis Marion National Forest. Bird lovers will be particularly excited by the ornithologically significant spot which is home to the highest concentration of breeding swallow-tailed kites. That's not all. The pine tree forest provides a habitat for over 350 pairs of breeding red-cockaded woodpeckers, several nesting pairs of bald eagles and other majestic birds. If you come during the winter, you may be lucky to spot some of the wood storks foraging in the park or the winter hawks which migrate here during the coldest months.
