Destination guide

Craving sun and surf? You have an itchfield for Litchfield

Named after a rice plantation founded in the early 1700s, Litchfield Beach is a sun-soaked resort community where visitors can still find traces of a complex history. Today, travelers seek out Litchfield Beach vacation rentals because of the town's quiet charm, beaches, golf courses, and water sports. It's a 30-minute drive north to Myrtle Beach and south to historic Georgetown, so you can visit both places but still retreat from the crowds when you choose. After some quality beach time and fun in the sun, visitors can check out area history museums and cultural landmarks.

Things to do

Take a break from ocean gazing to gaze back in time

Most out-of-towners have likely never heard of the Gullah people, and that's a real shame. Correct the error with a trip to the Gullah Museum, founded to preserve the history of these descendants of African slaves who settled in South Carolina's Lowcountry and developed their own language and identity. The Hobcaw Barony is also a short drive from your Litchfield Beach vacation rental. This beautiful estate surrounded by manicured gardens and moss-draped oaks hosted luminaries like Eleanor Roosevelt and Winston Churchill. Today, visitors hike the grounds and visit the former plantation's slave village.


Guided tours or self-guided sunbathing _ Litchfield has both

If you can't find a beach you like in the vicinity of your Litchfield Beach vacation rental, well, that's weird. Litchfield, North Litchfield and Litchfield by the Sea are the three beaches arrayed along this 8-mile strip of sand, and they all provide excellent fishing, picnicking, and shell gathering opportunities. For those who'd like something off the beaten path, guided kayak tours snake through the rivers, creeks, and marshes of the area and provide a glimpse of the natural scenery that many beachcombing visitors don't even know about.


Quiet winters, bustling summers, and perfection in between

It makes sense that you'd look for beach weather before booking your Litchfield Beach vacation rental, so let the hot, humid South Carolina summers seduce you with their 90¡ highs and sunscreen worthy afternoons. Still, don't snub the shoulder seasons. Spring and fall are beautiful, with warm temperatures, fewer thunderstorms, lower prices, and smaller crowds. You'll see flowers blooming from March to May and migratory birds overhead from September to November. Winter is short and cool, perfect for travelers who prefer brisk walks on secluded beaches.

Natural features

Swim with the 'gators! Kidding. You'll just be looking

If you miss the wildlife waiting for you at Litchfield Beach, you're really missing out. Don't worry. Area parks and gardens make it easy. Huntington Beach State Park is just a few miles north. This coastal preserve has a large, protected beach and offers guided encounters with loggerhead turtles and other endangered plant and animal species. Guests can even see alligators (safely!) at the park's freshwater lake. More wildlife is on display at Brookgreen Gardens, where the world's largest collection of outdoor statues compliments the themed gardens and nature trails.
