Georgetown Real Estate
Mere miles and whole worlds from amusement parks, high-rises, theatres, and sprawling shopping malls, the historic city of Georgetown rises in antebellum grace. Established in 1732, Georgetown is South Carolina’s third oldest city. The oak-lined avenues of this “little Charleston” city feature group tour treasures for even the most discriminating travelers. The riverfront is alive with activity and history. Dining, shopping, and scenery reign supreme. Harborwalk is a quaint waterfront boardwalk between two of Georgetown’s most historically significant buildings, the Kaminski House (c. 1760) and the Rice Museum (originally the Old Market Building, c. 1842). Overlooking the Sampit River Harbor, the boardwalk is lined with restaurants, galleries, antique shops, and specialty stores. Shoppers have more than 30 specialty shops to browse. A potpourri of art galleries and quaint shops with Lowcountry names offer a treasure trove of books, clothes, fine art, jewelry, crafts, cards, and antiques. There are several ways to see the rest of Georgetown. Historic attractions such as the Kaminski House and the Rice Museum complement a staggering concentration of 50-plus antebellum mansions, a few of which are operated as quaint bed and breakfast inns. Guided or self-guided historical tours are readily available.
