Discount offered on state park passes

Georgetown County will again offer annual South Carolina state park passports at two of its library branches.

The passes will be sold for $55.50, limited to two passes per residence, and can be purchased at either the Georgetown or Waccamaw branch libraries or the county's Parks and Recreation administrative offices at 2030 Church St., Georgetown. For information, call (843) 545-3300 or 545-3275.

Each passport is valid for park admission fees and provides access into any S.C. state park that charges a fee, including Huntington Beach State Park, located between Litchfield and Murrells Inlet. Huntington Beach offers a number of perks for beachgoers in Georgetown County, including ample parking space, a rich element of history as home to Atalaya “castle,” and it also has the only beach in the county where lifeguards are sta-tioned. Regular admission is $5.
