Pawleys Island a finalist for ‘Nicest Place in America’

Health

Jake Heironimus creates one of the 1,800-plus cards of encouragement given by members of Pawleys Island Community Church to the team at Tidelands Health early on in the COVID-19 pandemic. The incredible showing of support was cited by Reader's Digest in its article naming Pawleys Island "Nicest Place in South Carolina."

Like communities across the nation and world, the people of Pawleys Island have grappled with two crises in recent weeks – the COVID-19 pandemic and the virus of racial injustice.
The unity and kindness with which Pawleys Island has responded to both has earned the town recognition as “The Nicest Place in South Carolina” by Reader’s Digest. Pawleys Island is now one of 50 finalists – one from each state — for The Nicest Place in America, which will be selected by the venerable magazine later this year.
