Pawleys Island is located 12 miles north of Georgetown and 22 miles south of Myrtle Beach. This relaxed beach community has only 200 year-round residents, but thousands of part-time residents and visitors. It is often described (with pride) as "arrogantly shabby."
Cypress Gardens was created in 1909 by Benjamin Rufus Kitteredge on the original rice fields of Dean Hall Plantation. Today, the walking paths through the gardens follow the tops of the dikes. Kittredge opened the gardens to the public in 1932.
Located at 200 East Bay Street in historic downtown Charleston, the United States Custom House was completed in 1879 and is one of only several historical custom buildings that continues to serve its original purpose.
