Georgetown County, the third-oldest city in South Carolina, is located on the Sampit River about an hour-long scenic drive along US Highway 17.

South Carolina is one of our favourite destinations and our visits always include a road trip to explore a nearby town. Our home base is usually sunny Myrtle Beach and we never run out of fun things to do and explore. This ocean town is ideal for families as there are endless activities, family friendly accommodations, delicious dining options, a trendy boardwalk with adorable shops, and of course boundless water sports like banana boats, jet skis, and parasailing.

Over the years, Myrtle Beach trips with my son Noah, have included driving to Murrell’s Inlet and Conway, and this time we decided to take a road trip to Georgetown for the day.
