"Georgetown: Charleston's Little Sister" Georgetown by Tom_Fields

Georgetown Travel Guide: 50 reviews and 102 photos


Here is a pleasant little coastal town. Northeast of Charleston, it makes a nice day trip for anyone staying there. This is the third oldest city in South Carolina (after Charleston and Beaufort), dating from 1729. It has been a bustling port ever since.

The major local crops used to be rice and indigo, but they are no longer profitable. Today, lumber, paper, and tourism have been mainstays of the economy.
