The town that fed a world

Georgetown, the largest rice-exporting port in the planet in 1840, back when South Carolina produced 75% of the U.S. crop.  "Carolina Gold" rice may now come from Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana, but there are reasons for the name..

The town is very friendly to sailors.  If you go, visit the Rice Museum, housed in the 1842 building attached to the clock tower.
