Pawleys Island, South Carolina: Laid-Back Beach Town with Antebellum Architecture
Located about 25 miles south of Myrtle Beach, tiny Pawleys Island charms visitors with its laid-back vibe and rich history. The historic district has a number of rustic beach cottages that date back to the late 1700s, when the barrier island was inhabited by wealthy rice-plantation owners.
One of these estates is now home to the Caledonia Golf & Fish Club. Named one of America’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses by Golf Digest in 2008, the grounds are dotted with centuries-old live oaks and feature an antebellum-style clubhouse. The island’s year-round temperate climate makes golfing a popular pastime no matter when you visit.
At the Hammock Shops Village, you can check out an Audubon store, a candle maker’s shop, and more than 20 other specialty boutiques and restaurants. Built in 1938, the village is surrounded by gardens teeming with moss-draped oaks and azaleas. And, true to its name, the Hammock Shops Village provides hammocks and rockers for pausing and slipping into siestas.
