The Lowcountry is as much a state of mind as it is a geographical region. The coastal region of southern South Carolina is at the heart of the Lowcountry. A place where the tides govern the lives of the people and the wildlife that make the region unique and captivating. The Lowcountry is home to several of the nation's most historic ports including Charleston, South Carolina and Savannah, Georgia.
The sea islands that dot the Lowcountry landscape are as steeped in history and tradition as the historic cities. Small towns and villages welcome visitors with roadside stands featuring locally caught or grown seafood and produce. Terms such as sweet grass and Gullah become part of your vocabulary as you learn about the culture of the region. Beautiful parks with historic lighthouses beckon beach goers to explore undeveloped stretches of sand and linger a while in the warm embrace of the South.
