Welcome to the Beautiful South Carolina Lowcountry Region!

The Lowcountry Region offers so much to see and do, from a variety of recreational pursuits (fishing, sailing, hunting, bird watching, paddling, surfing, golf, and tennis, to name a few) to seeing the sites (lighthouses, historic buildings, museums, art galleries, concerts, movie locations, the Penn Center Historic District, etc.).

One way to “take-in” the Lowcountry is by going on a tour (a horse-drawn carriage, bus, boat or kayak, we even have some great walking tours). Shopping here can include one-of-a-kind treasures from the South Carolina Artisans Center, to clever, little, eclectic shops, to mega, bargain hunting at factory outlets.

We have a festival to celebrate nearly everything: the endangered Gopher Tortoise, watermelons, catfish, rice, harbors and water, shrimp, chilli and wine, and even more. Lowcountry dining can be an art practiced by gourmet chefs, or a quick bite on an old back porch. Overlook the water or one of dozens of beautiful golf courses while samplings some of the finest seafood on the east coast.

We invite you and your loved ones to enjoy the many cultural, historical and recreational opportunities in this unique part of South Carolina. We have all the wonderful things that make the Lowcountry a great place to visit or call home.

Our accommodations range from a reasonably-priced rest from the busy highway, to the finest four-star resorts, bed & breakfasts, inns, or beach-front cottages. We also have great campgrounds at our terrific State Parks, right off I-95 at Point South and Walterboro and in other areas like St Helena, Bluffton and Hilton Head Island.

The “Frampton House” property was part of an original King’s Grant to the Frampton family in the 1700s. In 1865, General Sherman’s troops burned the plantation house and all the farm buildings that stood on this site. In 1868, John Frampton rebuilt the present charming Lowcountry farmhouse and continued to work the land.

The Lowcountry & Resort Islands Region of South Carolina includes the four, southern-most counties in the state, Beaufort, Jasper, Hampton, and Colleton, which are bordered on the east by the Atlantic Ocean and on the west by the Savannah River and the state of Georgia.

The Region begins on the northern end with the quiet, family, beach Town of Edisto Beach. Traveling south along the coast brings you to historic Beaufort, Port Royal, Parris Island and Bluffton, and then to internationally-famous, Hilton Head Island.
