The Waccamaw Neck

The Waccamaw Neck is a beautiful place to live and work, vacation and play, or visit and admire. No matter how long your stay, it is a place to enjoy. This is a part of Georgetown county that has a significant history, a vibrant present, and a promising future. It is defined by the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the Waccamaw River and Intracoastal Waterway to the West, Winyah Bay to the south, and the county line to the north.

There is no way I can provide a comprehensive list of all the things to do, places to go, and people to meet here, but maybe you would find some of these to be of interest:

Murrells Inlet bills itself as "the seafood capital of South Carolina". Click here for a photo gallery of this fishing village with it's restaurants and marsh-front boardwalk and for a link for more information.

Litchfield Beach has long been a destination resort that is favored for providing a  quieter atmosphere than Myrtle Beach while still allowing easy access to all the action and activity that tourist mecca has to offer. The beach and golf resort at Litchfield By The Sea is in the heart of this area. Click here for a photo gallery and links for more information.

Pawleys Island is the oldest resort in the United States. It has unique local shops, highly-regarded restaurants, and an overall atmosphere that the locals proudly describe as "arrogantly shabby". It is difficult to explain - you need to visit to understand. Click here for a photo gallery that trys to begin to show the character of the Island

Georgetown is just south of "The Neck" and has many locally-owned shops, restaurants, and a harbor-front boardwalk. Click here for a photo gallery sampling of the town and a link to the local chamber of commerce.

These are all in Georgetown County. The county has a web site; to visit, click here. The tourist bureau has a web site that can be helpful with information on lodging, dining, and more. Click here to visit that site.

Between Litchfield and Murrells Inlet are two major attractions. Brookgreen Gardens is nationally known for both the sculpture and the garden settings. Click here for a photo gallery and a link to their site. Huntington Beach State Park provides a wonderful opportunity for a visit to the beach and hosts the annual Atalaya Arts and Crafts Festival held near the end of September each year. Click here for a photo gallery and links to those sites.
