Situated in the far north of the state of South Carolina is the historic sea port city of Georgetown. This city is the third oldest city in the state of South Carolina, which means that a Georgetown holiday rental house is the perfect base to find out more about the history, traditions and culture of the city. It is also strongly argued by some historians that American history started in Georgetown. A Georgetown holiday guarantees a host of activities, seclusion when desired and some spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean.
A Georgetown holiday is the perfect option for travellers looking for sun, sea and sand, with a bit of history thrown in for good measure. Georgetown has beautiful, unspoilt beaches which are great for relaxing on the sand or taking a dip in the sea. Other activities available in the city include golf, tennis, fishing and bird watching. A Georgetown holiday rental house is one of the best locations to find subjects for interesting paintings or photographs too.
Georgetown has a range of museums and places of interest. One attraction that is a must-see is The Kaminski House. Situated on a bluff overlooking the Sampit River, this 18th century house is home to a collection of fine antiques and original period features. There are often picnics held on the immaculate green lawn overlooking the river.
If you feel like leaving your Georgetown holiday rental house to explore further a field, then take a 40 minute journey north to the town of Pendleton. The town has many historic buildings, particularly in the Pendleton Town Square area, which are on the National Register of Historic Places. On the outskirts of the town is the Woodburn Plantation which was built in the 1830s. The house is beautifully preserved and is home to many fine antiques as well as items of historical importance. The town also has the Pendleton District Agricultural Museum which features various farming tools, information on agricultural history in the area and displays of equipment that was used in the late 19th century.
Georgetown and the surrounding area are blessed with a Subtropical climate which means that visitors can enjoy warm summers and relatively mild winters. The average daytime temperature during the summer months is 23°C. During the winter months visitors can expect an average daytime temperature of around 15°C. The city is in the hurricane belt and so there may be tropical storms during hurricane season, which runs from June until November.
Travellers on a Georgetown holiday will most likely land at Myrtle Beach Airport (MYR) which is just under an hour’s journey to the north of the city. Airlines that offer regular, affordable flights include Delta Airlines, KLM and Continental Airlines. Passengers can leave from several UK airports including Heathrow (LHR), Cardiff (CWL), London Gatwick (LGW) and Aberdeen (ABZ).
