Many guests at the Litchfield Beach Resort take a short trip north to Myrtle Beach for a full day of attractions, shopping and dining. But for an equally enjoyable but completely different experience, take the short drive south to the historic port city of Georgetown and the lovely Lowcountry scenery.Located at the headwaters of the Black and Sampit Rivers and Intracoastal Waterway, Georgetown is the third oldest port in the nation. The combination of history and seafaring are still evident along the downtown district’s Harborwalk, where locals and tourists stroll from shop to café while fishing boats sail in and out of Winyah Bay....

The South Strand relishes its “endless summer” vibe.But the kids still have to go back to school, you know what we mean?Spending Labor Day weekend at Litchfield Beach & Golf means you get one last summertime hurrah — one last lazy beach day, one last over-the-top ice cream cone, one last sunset over the inlet.We get the importance of this ritualistic changing of the seasonal guard, even if the warm weather does tend to linger a little longer here.We’ve got some great things to do here over Labor Day weekend — away from the teeming crowds of some of the bigger, more obvious attractions — to stretch out those last fun days of the best time of year....

You know we love Myrtle Beach.Like, love.But we also enjoy getting out a little, venturing off the beaten path, reveling in some quieter corners of the Grand Strand.Which is why we really love Pawleys Island.But what to do? Where to start? And how do we get there?Easy. Follow us.Pawleys Island lies off the Highway 17 corridor that links Myrtle Beach to Charleston, making it a snap to get from one spot to the other and everything in between. Murrells Inlet is just to the north, as are popular Brookgreen Gardens and Huntington Beach State Park. Just to the west the links-lovers among you will find a golfers paradise.... Read More
While, yes, the beach and golf and sunshine play a big, big part in the decision to visit the Grand Strand, the fact that we also happen to be home to some of the freshest, most incredible seafood in the country ought to weigh in, too.With the abundance of grouper, flounder, drum, trout, mackerel and more packing our waters, not to mention shrimp and inlet oysters, coastal Carolina has a lot to boast. And don’t we reap the benefits.We like to venture down Route 17 in the Pawleys/Murrells corridor to hit some phenomenal but off-the-beaten-path options. Here are seven — out of MANY — of our faves, in no particular order:1) Bliss (Murrells Inlet): This award-winning local favorite doesn’t fib — their seafood is blissful.... Read More
Diners at Webster's in Litchfield often have a hard time choosing between the many unique dishes on the menu.But ask executive chef Sean Thomas for a recommendation and he may send you back to the basics.'I just love our shrimp and grits,' said Thomas, the magician in the kitchen who created the menu. 'What can I say? I am crazy for the classics.'And who wouldn't be? By using the freshest local shrimp and ingredients he can get his hands on, Thomas doesn't have to work much magic to make this dish a hit, but he does anyway.The shrimp is half the battle, and Webster's goes straight to the local docks to ensure high quality and freshness....

We often forget that the United States is not that old — few cities even crest the two-century mark.Here in the Grand Strand, things sometimes seem especially young. We’ve got new hotels, new restaurants and new attractions that seem to pop up daily.Then we head a little south, to quaint Georgetown, S.C., and get a dose of what life was like so very long ago.When you head to Georgetown — a seaside community halfway between Myrtle Beach and Charleston — the best way to dip into its historic significance is through the fun and informative Swamp Fox Tours Company....

For the majority of the continental United States, winter is “Why Do I Live Here?” season. However, not in Myrtle Beach, where the fair weather and infrequent snowfalls make it a delight to reside in year round.With that said, we locals adore autumn and recommend it over winter for visitors looking to escape the encroaching cold. Here’s why.1) Weather: Fall is a joy in Myrtle Beach, with average September highs in the 80s and October’s at the near ideal mid-70s mark. Even November, rounding the corner toward winter, tops out in the mid-60s, making those cozy sweaters useful, but not essential.... Read More
Think about it: we’re taking stock of the summer season, reaping the bounty of our fields, and taking a breather from some oppressive heat. However, you know that pit-of-the-stomach uneasy feeling folks experience, where even the most beautiful fall is just a precursor to some brutal winter weather? Yeah, we don’t get that here.It’s all good, all the time.Anyway, Litchfield Beach & Golf Resort fits you right in the center of all the action — be it a harvest, art, wine, music or food festival — with great off-season rates on accommodations and packages that will leave you with a little more cash in your pocket to splurge for that pumpkin spice latte....
