Description
The mid-19th-century export seat of the great Carolina Gold rice empire, Georgetown developed into an important shipping port thanks to its deepwater harbor. Some of the town's early 18th-century buildings are still in use and can be seen on a walk or ride along the historic district’s oak-shaded streets. To delve deeper into Georgetown’s history and natural environment, take a guided tour or explore one of its museums. Complete your visit with a dining and shopping experience on Front Street .

Shopping
In Georgetown, some of the best places to swipe your credit card are found on lantern-lit Front Street , which runs parallel to the Harborwalk in the town’s compact historic district. Pretty pastel-colored buildings house an eclectic mix of retailers specializing in art, antiques, men’s and women’s apparel, books, home decor, jewelry, gifts and more. On Saturdays from April through October, pick up some locally grown fruits and veggies at the farmers market in nearby East Bay Park, on the south end of E. Bay Street.
