A LITTLE BIT ABOUT PAWLEYS ISLAND LIFESTYLES ….

Pawleys Island is a little ole’ town on the East Coast that has a whole lotta history goin’ on. They have a very active community with most of its full time residents and vacationers happy to call Pawleys Island home. It is not only a place to own a home, it is a lifestyle that is enriched by its people, heritage, natural beauty, and location. There are so many activities, historical sites and area attractions that it could keep a vacationer/homeowner busy here for a lifetime. Many vacationers have been converted to residents when just visiting, because of one or more of the factors above. In fact, Pawleys Island is considered to be the oldest seaside community in the United States. It started as a “vacation” spot (c. 1700’s) for plantation owners in Charleston to escape the hot summer days & pesky mosquitoes. Some families who currently live here have a deep connection to the past, and their property in Pawleys Island has been in their family for generations. On the other hand, many locals once called another place home, and are now considered local after living here for 12 or more years. That’s an ongoing joke with the Natives here. They say that you “qualify” to be called a “native” if you have lived in Pawleys for at least 12 years. 🙂 This is just a silly observation, not to be taken to heart. Pawleys Island has much heart & diversity and yet stays much the same, giving it that lowcountry lifestyle. We like to call it an “arrogantly shabby” lifestyle. If you are here visiting and are tempted to purchase a “home away from home” in Pawleys Island, please be sure to give the Pawleys Gal a call!
