When you think of Georgetown as a local, you pretty much go through your mind recollecting and reminiscing the amazing beauty and awesome kindness exemplified by our river front and smiling faces. As a born and raised Georgetonian, I have always appreciated this town, admired its people and adored the amazing community outreach.
Georgetown truly is a people’s town. Lots of faith can be seen throughout the area. A person’s good will charitable giving is often expressed anonymously. There’s so much to experience and explore. So much so, our wonderful town is constantly promoted as a tourist destination.
We have breathtaking river front views. There are some awesome parks to visit here. You can’t miss those gorgeous Oak trees. You can also experience amazing historical housing and history telling shared while on tours.
I have always loved the fact our town never gives up. After Hurricane Hugo, we never gave up. After the horrendous Front Street fire, we never gave up.
And, our restaurants never give up.
I look at our wonderful restaurants as doorways to Georgetown. Whether you are a tourist or local, our restaurants live and die by your business, and if the food or service isn’t great, they see it by not seeing you come back.
Restaurant owners in Georgetown work day and day out to provide the best dining experience for the area: locals and tourists. Yes, that’s right, locals.
These restaurants, specifically the ones on Front Street, are not tourist-only. They would bend over backwards to have a local base they could depend on. They work hard, from hostess to chef to owner, to create fine dishes for all to enjoy.
I want locals to know they are always welcome in Georgetown restaurants. They are part of our town. They want you to be part of them.
I am strong-skilled in advocacy, however, what I was known for I do no more. Life changing events allowed me to refocus my life and goals in 2013. I have always wanted to help Georgetown and I think this niche is just it.
Georgetown Foodland is a Facebook page created to help and support our local restaurants. What I do and share is free, at no charge to restaurants. I just want to provide exposure for them to our town (locals) primarily and tourists. Locals need to know they are welcome, appreciated and needed.
The website, georgetownfoodland.com, just went online this month. It will feature short stories on restaurants and other possibilities later.
Please support our local restaurants. Dine with them. Build friendships. Create a bond through food.
Oh, and enjoy the scenery… the tastes are beautiful.
