Sometimes, we like to leave our cellphones and other modern advances on the backburner and take a step back in time.


One of our favorite spots in the Myrtle Beach area to play time traveler is the Hopsewee Plantation.


This traditional Lowcountry rice plantation was built 40 years before the start of the Revolutionary War. After close to 300 years, the house has only been owned by five families, none of whom allowed the property to fall into decay.


Indeed, the home is truly a preservation instead of a restoration.


And it’s not just the home that is strikingly beautiful. With Hopsewee being located along the North Santee River, visitors can enjoy the calm majesty of the rolling water and moss-draped trees.


Take our word for it; this is a day excursion well worth taking.
