Georgetown Crowned America’s Best Coastal Small Town By USA Today/10Best Readers

A waterfront community with 9,000 residents, Georgetown was voted the nation’s “Best Coastal Small Town” by USA Today/10Best.

GEORGETOWN, SC, US, May 22, 2018 / -- South Carolina’s third oldest city is America’s No. 1 coastal town, according to USA Today/10Best Reader’s Choice voters.

A waterfront community with 9,000 residents, Georgetown was voted the nation’s “Best Coastal Small Town” by USA Today/10Best.

Georgetown has more 200-year-old buildings than Charleston and historic Front Street, which resides along the water, is the town’s heartbeat.

Guests enjoy the opportunity to partake in the area’s shopping, dining and rich history, including the Kaminski House and Rice Museum. Front Street overlooks the Sampit River, which links the town with the Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean, providing stunning natural beauty.

“Georgetown represents the best of small town America – the people are hardworking, friendly and take great pride in our community,” said Beth Stedman, CEO of the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce. “The way the community reflects the values of its citizens is part of what makes Georgetown so attractive, and we are blessed to be located along a beautiful stretch of the South Carolina coast.”

“We are honored to be named America’s Best Coastal Small Town,” said Jennifer Norman, Tourism Development Director for the Georgetown County Chamber of Commerce. “It is rewarding to discover USA Today/10Best readers see the same attributes in Georgetown that we as residents do. With the summer season nearly upon us, we look forward to introducing vacationers to all Georgetown has to offer.”

Georgetown was matched against coastal towns that reside along nearly every major body of water in America, ranging from the Great Lakes to the Pacific Ocean, and outpolled nine other finalists.

Georgetown is one of five communities that make up the Hammock Coast, joining Garden City, Murrells Inlet, Litchfield and Pawleys Island.
