Enjoy the South’s Unspoiled Beaches
Pawleys Island, South Carolina is located in between historic Charleston and Myrtle Beach on the famous Grand Strand. Pawleys Island is a desirable place to vacation, and is considered to be one of the oldest summer resorts along the Eastern Coast of the United States. In the early 1700s, rice planters, plantation owners and their families first settled in Pawleys Island. Every year in May, they moved their entire families and farms from along the inland riverbanks to the seashores of Pawleys Island because it was considered to be a healthier place to live.
The planters and their families made it a tradition to take leisurely trips to this new coastal area between the months of May and November. This tradition is still carried on today, even if we aren’t vacationing with our entire family and/or farm animals. Pawleys Island is famous for its historic district which has 12 residences still standing that date back to the late 1700s and mid 1800s. The Pawleys Island area is known to be “unspoiled, unsophisticated, casual, and delightful” with a vast stretch of white beach and protected sand dunes. Come experience this “arrogantly shabby” lifestyle in Pawleys Island at the historic oceanfront Litchfield Inn!
