Head to the Georgetown County Museum and learn about the history that has shaped the town from the original Native Americans residents to the Steel Mill and more. Pop into the Rice Museum and get a glimpse of the town's darker past when large slave-holding rice plantations were found here. Those who love antebellum houses will want to explore the Kaminski House and museum -- a wonderful example of the architecture and Georgian style of the period.
Elsewhere, pick from one of the popular boat or tram tours and go shelling or visit the lighthouse. You can also take a ghost tour and enjoy all the stories and legends from the last 300 years.
