Seeking Peaceful Vacation Getaways? You’ve Landed in Palmetto Bluff

Quiet Luxury Vacation Getaways

The quiet luxury of Palmetto Bluff is one of the many vacation getaways we offer at Getaway2give. There’s a certain mystique about the Low Country. And as far as peaceful vacation getaways go, it is cherished as a quiet, pristine paradise.

However, the Low Country is more than merely a place. Although it geographically refers to the sub-tropical South Carolina coast including the Sea Islands, it is actually a culture with customs, crafts and cuisine all its own.

Books have been written about it, movies have featured it as their setting, chefs have specialized in its unique cooking style, and TV shows have placed their characters there. Think Anne River Siddon’s book Low Country or Pat Conroy’s The Prince of Tides. Or such films as Hardeeville, Forrest Gump, The Big Chill. Or Chef Philip Bardin’s fried quail with duck-stock gravy.

If you want to experience all the best of the Low Country while living in high style, you should consider a stay in Palmetto Bluff [LINK].

Palmetto Bluff’s developers were intent on preserving not only the region’s topography, but also its rich Southern heritage. For years, Native Americans harvested oysters and fished here. Then came plantations during the antebellum era, and in 1902 a wealthy New York banker, Richard T. Wilson purchased Palmetto Bluff where he built a grand mansion that lavishly entertained visiting socialites. The Village Square was built on the old mansion site and it still reflects that gracious, carefree lifestyle.

Dedicated to protecting the ancient maritime forest is the Palmetto Bluff Conservancy, a 501c3 non-profit organization offering interactive educational programs for visitors and Palmetto Bluff members. Artifacts as old as 12,000 years are on display at the local History Center.
