Surrounded by live oak-lined streets, Downtown Georgetown is the 3rd oldest city in the state and its historic district will give you a sense of the culture and impact it’s had on southern life in the Lowcountry.
Get a taste of Georgetown’s past by visiting one of its many museums or taking a tour. A local favorite, the Rover Tours will have you board their Carolina Rover, a shaded 40-foot pontoon boat, for an enlightening cruise ride.
