North of Mount Pleasant on Highway 17, the fishing and shrimping villages of Awendaw and McClellanville are quaint, quiet, close-knit communities that are bordered by the Intracoastal Waterway to the east and the Francis Marion National Forest to the west.

McClellanville’s picturesque waterfront, old churches and shrimping docks are testimony to a salty livelihood that has supported generations of Lowcountry families. A 20-30-minute drive south to Mount Pleasant and I-526 or north to Georgetown make living in these charming small towns feasible for those who work elsewhere.
