We recently had the pleasure of visiting Shem Creek at Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. As we walked the boardwalk that spans both sides of the creek, we saw several shrimpboats such as these along the lovely waterfront. The shrimping industry came to Shem Creek by 1930 and was the mainstay of the area for many years. In more recent years, shrimping regulations and environmental changes have somewhat impacted the occupation along the creek; however, the beauty of Shem Creek and its history are attracting more and more tourists each year. Shem Creek is a place you will definitely want to visit time and again when in the Charleston area!
