South Carolina’s Hammock Coast • • 843-546-8436

Welcome to South carolina's hammock coast From 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 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 you 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.

yoU will want to return year after yeaR

for your best vacation ever

My Favorite Dish My favorite dish is the Caledonia salad with grilled chicken or shrimp. It’s a spinach and fruit based salad that is very nutritious and delicious. The Caledonia Salad was developed by myself and my wife Tanya Monroe. Customers say it’s incredibly refreshing and tasty. The special dressing we use is raspberry vinaigrette. Sean Monroe, Chef, Caledonia Golf & Fish Club Grillroom 369 Caledonia Drive, Pawleys Island and serves lunch 11am-3pm daily. I love our buttermilk fried chicken served on a bed of warm blue cheese slaw and topped with milk pepper gravy. It’s very traditional southern cuisine but with a twist. The warm blue cheese slaw makes the dish special with the crunchy slaw and the blue cheese bite. Top it off with the pepper gravy and it’s almost like being at Grandma’s supper table – but better! (Don’t tell Grandma!) It’s our award-winning dish with the best of the Taste of Georgetown, and the best of the Taste of Charlotte. Greg Metcalfe, SoCo Seafood Shack & SoCo Baja Grille SoCo Seafood Shack is located in the Hammock Shops Village and is open Sun-Thur, 11am-9pm, and Fri & Sat, 11am-10pm. SoCo Baja Grille is found at 13089 Ocean Hwy in Pawleys Island, and is open Mon-Sat, 11am-9pm. One dish, in particular, always stands out to me. I grew up the daughter of a fishing boat captain in Little River. Our Seafood Omelet brings me back to days on the water with Daddy – it’s loaded with fresh crab meat, succulent gulf shrimp, smoked Atlantic salmon, juicy tomatoes, swiss cheese – and topped with chipotle hollandaise sauce and parmesan cheese! It’s to die for! We take pride in all of our dishes and want you to feel at home with every bite. Amy Vlahos, Applewood Pancake House Applewood Pancake House is located at 14361 Ocean Highway in Pawleys Island and is open daily from 6am-2:30pm. 8

First known for its lucrative indigo industry, Georgetown County became one of the richest areas in the nation 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. No exploration of Hammock Coast art and history is complete without a visit to Brook g re e n Gardens, one of America’s premier s c u l p t u re g a rd e n s 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. 30

While well known financier Bernard Baruch entertained some of the most well known political figures of his day at Hobcaw Barony, including Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt, his daughter Belle left an enduring mark on today’s world. Bernard Baruch purchased the property between 1905 and 1907 as a hunting retreat, and Belle, who was concerned by the development along the coast, began buying the property from her father in 1936. Upon her death in 1964, the 16,000 acre property was transferred to the Belle Baruch Foundation, ensuring its preservation for future generations. Home to one of the signers of The Declaration of Independence, T h o m a s L y n c h , J r. , Hopsewee Plantation is open to the public year round. Tours are available on the hour from 10am-3pm, and guests may enjoy a tea room with a full menu! This historic site also hosts numerous weddings and events.

A large beach towel can dry you off after a dip in the Atlantic or keep the sand at bay while you nap.

Plenty of sunscreen, reapplied often, will protect you and your family.

No trip to Pawleys Island is complete without a visit to The Hammock Shops Village, a charming shopping village set amid moss-draped 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 Marvin Grant, the “Hammock Man.” Mr. Grant is one of the hammock makers in Pawleys I s l a nd a nd ha s made more 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
