How to Create the Perfect Pawleys Island Vacation


The Pawleys Island vacation tradition started long ago, even before the Civil War when wealthy families came to the east coast to take a vacation from the mosquitoes brought on by summer. Some of the original vacation residences are still standing and serve as historical markers of the time between the 1700’s and 1800’s. 


Today, this self-proclaimed “arrogantly shabby” resort town is a favorite destination of many. The laid-back, casual town is lined with unique shops and restaurants, while the unspoiled beauty of marshes and sandy beaches beckon visitors to slow down and drink it all in. While this peace of paradise is the perfect backdrop for your vacation, we have a few tips that will help you create the perfect Pawleys Island vacation.
