Lowcountry & Resort Islands Tourism Commission

South of Charleston, North of Savannah… Near Heaven

The South Carolina Lowcountry beckons beach lovers, thrill seekers, history buffs, outdoor enthusiasts, bird watchers, foodies, fishermen, golfers, artists and authors with its laidback lifestyle, lush landscapes, natural attractions and diverse culture.

Warmed by Southern breezes, the miles of pristine beaches, expansive marshes and maritime forests found on the sea islands of Hilton Head, Daufuskie, Fripp, St. Helena, Hunting and Edisto Islands gradually give way to the historic antebellum towns of Beaufort, Port Royal, Bluffton, Walterboro, Hampton and Hardeeville, fertile farmlands and charming rural communities like Ridgeland, Estill and Varnville, all shaded by stately live oaks and palmettos.

Rivers, railroad tracks, interstate highways and country roads crisscross the four-county area, providing easy access to Lowcountry attractions both on and off the beaten path. Flanked on either side by the Charleston and Hilton Head/Savannah Airports, Amtrak runs through the region stopping in Yemassee.

Accommodations range from luxury hotel rooms, oceanfront homes and fairway view condos to fully-equipped villas, RV resorts and rustic campgrounds. Recreational opportunities abound with more than three-dozen golf courses – including the Harbour Town Golf Links, home of the PGA Tour’s RBC Heritage tournament – scattered throughout the Lowcountry, as well as an incredible array of outdoor activities.

Home to thriving arts communities, the SC Artisans Center is located in Walterboro, renowned author Pat Conroy lives in Beaufort, famed Gullah artist Jonathan Green hails from Gardens Corner and St. Helena’s own Candice Glover recently won American Idol.

Easy to get to, impossible to leave, start off your Lowcountry adventure at the Frampton Plantation Visitors Center at Exit 33 off I-95 for details on the Lowcountry.
