The south end of the Grand Strand is known for its luxurious golf courses and tranquil beaches, but the area also offers special shopping with the most unique art and apparel.
The Hammock Shops Village, known as the “Heart of Pawleys,” is home to some of the most eccentric and fashionable shops. Find your newest and most novel item at Alter Ego Boutique, This and That 4 You, Elegantz, and a dozen more. This dynamic village also has your pet’s favorite treat from Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming as well as two restaurants, BisQit and Local. Every visitor needs to experience the craft beer, adult milkshakes, homemade dishes, and the feeling of community these eateries and their staff provide. Don’t forget to stop by the Pawleys Island Mercantile and The Candy Cottage to handpick your most beloved sweet treats.
The Island Shops, another local gem with a quaint outdoor setting, has a vibrant collection of shops, galleries, and dining. Whether your style is chic, boho, or casual, you can find your perfect look at Sea Gypsy Boutique, Limeablue, Everyday Elle, Lemon Drops, or The Oyster & Pearl. Be sure to bring a little piece of Pawleys home with you from Lowcountry Jewelers. These shops also offer award-winning restaurants with food inspired by the Lowcountry such as Bistro 217, Rustic Table, and the Pawleys Island Tavern. Take a break from your shopping to cool off with your favorite flavor of ice cream from Island Treats. And hey, since you are here to relax, why not book yourself an appointment at Spa Sera, you deserve it!
Just south of Pawleys Island, the stately City of Georgetown has a rich history and a thriving downtown area. Front Street, located along the Sampit River, is charming and the shops are locally owned and operated – Doodlebugs and Rice Birds are two local’s favorites.
