View our complete list of Pet Friendly Homes.There are lots of fun things to do and sights to see with your dog while in Pawleys Island. You can spend the day playing and relaxing on our pet friendly beaches, or shopping at the boutiques in Pawleys Island. You and your furry pal can take a walk along streets lined with historic homes in Georgetown, SC or stroll down the Harborwalk with water views dotted with sail boats, shrimp boats and yachts. Another great destination is Murrells Inlet, the seafood capital of South Carolina. Take a walk down the Marshwalk. Enjoy the sights and feel the salty breeze of the saltwater creek lined with boat marinas and lots of waterfront dining options. Many restaurants that have patio dining will accommodate you and your furry friend, just be sure to call in advance to reserve in the pet friendly sections. Brookgreen Gardens is not pet friendly but the Huntington Beach State Park allows leashed dogs in certain areas, and it is open all year round.
We look forward to hearing more about your travels and favorite places around Pawleys Island and Litchfield Beach with your four legged family, and when you are visiting our local sights and restaurants, please share photos of your dog for our slide show and social media sights like Facebook!
