If y’all haven’t ventured into McClellanville, SC for an afternoon from Mt Pleasant, you’re missing out!!!
McClellanville is a wonderful, small, and very quaint village…along with the best place to get your fresh shrimp and seafood at the best local prices! We went to TW Grahams for lunch… What a GREAT experience! They have fresh seafood and burgers too! They prepare it any way you like and I think it was one of the friendliest services we’ve ever had!
While waiting for our table (about 20 minutes), we walked through the shops, and what a great local artist shop O & C. They carry so many local artist items from tea towels to jewelry. The owner is right on hand and it couldn’t be sweeter!
After lunch, we headed up to the docks to see the shrimp boats and this guy Michael who was working there (yes, we were surrounded by three Mikes) even gave us an unplanned tour of the shrimp boats along with the netting operation they use!
Locals are so friendly, you just never know the experience you’re going to have! On your way out, don’t forget to buy a container of a local favorite, the shrimp dip! Absolutely fresh and delicious.
Then, on our way back we stopped on Highway 17 at Hidden Ponds Nursery in Awendaw. What a beautiful nursery with plenty of assortment for everything in your yard and reasonably priced too. They even have a little zoo for the kids with goats, donkeys, and yes… pot-bellied pigs!
If you haven’t taken the afternoon….go ahead, what a sweet day with sweet friends and experience. Making memories is what it’s all about!
