GTC Coastal Typical 2

Georgetown County isn't your typical coastal County. Our commerce history reads more like an industrialized port city; rather than just a coastal resort. And we have a great coastline too!

As the best kept secret in the Southeast, we have a port, land to build, industrial parks and sites ready for industry.

Additionally, our community understands and supports heavy industry.
