Welcome to South carolina's hammock coast

F

rom pristine beaches to small town beauty, the Hammock Coast is one of the South Carolina coast’s most beloved areas. Stretching from Garden City Beach to Georgetown, there are six communities, each with its own unique personality and charm. With quiet, breathtakingly beautiful beaches, rivers filled with wildlife and unique sights and adventures, the Hammock Coast is waiting to become your favorite destination. The third oldest city in South Carolina, Historic Georgetown has the charm of the old South combined with waterfront shopping and dining. The Historic District boasts homes that once hosted George Washington, and the infamous pirate, Blackbeard, could once be found lurking offshore. Eighteen miles inland you will find the small town of Andrews and the pristine Black River, a favorite of locals and visitors for boating and fishing. Garden City Beach, the northernmost point of the Hammock Coast, is a great spot for a family vacation or getaway. From swimming in the warm Atlantic to playing games in the arcade to strolling along the scenic, landmark pier, Garden City Beach offers countless opportunities to make your vacation unforgettable. Litchfield and Pawleys Island offer breathtaking beaches perfect for taking away the cares of everyday life. Shell hunters are amazed by the variety of offerings left on the shore. If you are craving creek life, look no further than Murrells Inlet. The delicious aroma of fresh seafood cooking will whet your appetite as your make your way down the beautiful Marshwalk and watch the pelicans and seagulls fish for their dinner. Spend the day in Murrells Inlet, and rent a kayak or experience the thrill of parasailing over the beautiful water. There is always something new to experience. Whether you like your days filled with activities or would rather snooze on the sand, the Hammock Coast has your perfect vacation ready and waiting. There are so many opportunities for fun, adventure and exploration.

My Favorite Dish My favorite dish is Drunken Jack’s Grouper Royale. It is prepared by having a grouper filet either grilled or blackened. I prefer having it blackened as I feel the spices compliment the sweetness of the grouper and the crab, and sears in the juices. Once the grouper is cooked it is topped with jumbo lump crab, sautéed mushrooms, asparagus and finished with béarnaise sauce.

David McMillan, managing partner, Drunken Jack’s Restaurant & Inlet Affairs DRUNKEN JACK’S RESTAURANT $$$ 4031 Hwy 17 Bus. • 843-651-2044 • Cuisine: Seafood • Serves: Lunch/Dinner

My favorite dish is Rustic Table’s Blackened Local Mahi over Crawfish and Sausage Dirty Grits, Wilted Spinach, Melted Tomato and Cider Brown Butter. This is an awesome dish because it uses local ingredients. It has a little bit of heat, a little bit of sweet, a little bit of crunch – many feelings and flavors that I love.

Chef Adam Kirby, co-owner Rustic Table & Bistro 217 BISTRO 217 $$$ 10707 Ocean Hwy • 843-235-8217 • Cuisine: American • Serves: Lunch/Dinner

My favorite dish is “Palmetto Cheese, the Pimento Cheese with Soul!” Its birthplace is Pawleys Island, and it is such an easy addition to many recipes. Pimento Cheese is a summertime memory food for me. Either on sandwiches or celery, we always had it in our refrigerator. Check out palmettocheese.com for information on where to buy and more serving suggestions.

First known for the many successful indigo plantations, Georgetown County became the richest area in the world through the production of Carolina Gold rice. The life of plantation owners was one of luxury and privilege, juxtaposed with the suffering of hundreds of enslaved Africans forced to complete the labor intensive cultivation of rice. The enslaved African-Americans of the plantation era developed their own unique culture, and the Gullah Geechee ways are kept alive by their descendants through delicious cuisine, beautiful art and a distinctive dialect. Gullah Geechee art can be seen in museums, gift shops and boutiques throughout the area. Lovers of the paranormal will not be disappointed by the ghosts of the Hammock Coast. From the sad and haunting tale of Alice Flagg who is said to appear as a sad young woman looking for a lost wedding ring to The Grey Man of Pawleys Island who walks the shore to warn residents of approaching storms, the Hammock 28

Coast has been the focus of paranormal researchers for decades. Ghost tours are available year round in Georgetown, led by experienced paranormal experts, leaving you with many mysterious questions unanswered. No exploration of Hammock Coast art and history is complete without a visit to Brookgreen Gardens, one of America’s premier gardens, as well as being designated a National Historic Landmark and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Huntington Beach State Park, just across highway 17, is the home of Atalaya Castle and a rich repository of natural beauty. The long history of Hobcaw Barony, from Native Americans inhabitants to wealthy rice planters to a retreat for famous 20th century leaders, has been well preserved. Staff guided tours of this beautiful property, now a research facility for state universities, are a fascinating way to spend an afternoon.

No trip to Pawleys Island Marvin Grant, the “Hammock is complete without a vis- Man.” Mr. Grant is the one and it to The Hammock Shops only hammock maker in Pawleys Island and has made more Village, a charming shopping village set amid mossdraped live oaks and seasonal blooms. What started with the creation of those famous rope hammocks has become a Pawleys Island landmark! The idea for the hammock came from native South Carolinian Joshua John Ward, a riverboat captain who ferried rice and supplies between the vast rice plantations and nearby Georgetown and Waverly Mills. Captain Josh found the lumpy, grass-filled mattresses on his boat too hot for the sultry coastal summers, so he set about designing a soft, cool bed that would serve his purpose. The result was a hammock so strong and comfortable that its handmade design has endured for more than a century unchanged and unchallenged. Stop by and watch local craftsman make hammocks, expertly weaving rope to make one of the most comfortable and durable hammocks sold. When you visit the Hammock Shops, stop by and say hello to

than 22,000 hammocks during his nearly 30 year career. This award-winning craftsman engages the public with his fascinating demonstrations of hammock weaving and great personality.

With over two dozen shops and fun eats, this is Pawleys Island’s destination shopping. For more info, visit www.hammockcoastsc.com.

Murrells Inlet is one of the oldest coastal communities in South Carolina and is known for its quaint charm. Travel south to Litchfield Beach, a quiet beach community named for a former rice plantation. The small barrier island of Pawleys Island draws visitors back year after year – a Pawleys Island vacation is often a family tradition that is handed down through generations.
