Georgetown

Follow the shrimp fleet to this port first explored by Spaniards in 1526. Learn about the cultivation of "Carolina Gold," which once made Georgetown the rice capital of the New World. Listen as one of the South's most beloved storytellers, Captain Sandy Vermont, spins a yarn. Then come inside regal Hampton Plantation, now a state park and a remarkable example of South Carolina's antebellum past.
