South Carolina has been home for AnneMarie since 2001. Her favorite part of the state is Lake Jocassee. An App State alumna, it's always the mountains; the lake bonus makes it heavenly. When not writing about the state, she may be spending time with family, relaxing by the pool, or out somewhere enjoying nature.
With a population of approximately 130, Pawleys Island is one of South Carolina’s smallest and most charming towns. It’s one of the oldest summer resorts on the east coast, situated 70 miles north of Charleston and 25 miles south of Myrtle Beach. And tucked away in this tiny town just so happens to be one of the nicest restaurants in America known as Frank’s and Frank’s Outback, one of the best small town restaurants in South Carolina.
