We hope our Lowcountry Visitor’s Website will assist you in planning your vacation to the Palmetto State’s beautiful Lowcountry region. The Lowcountry offers a wide variety of activities and culinary delights, as well as a taste of the rich history and culture of the South.

Four counties make up our Lowcountry region including Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton and Jasper. We invite you to explore our cultural heritage and Sea Island lifestyle. Warmed by Southern breezes and shaded by live oaks and stately palms, this area offers miles of pristine white-sand beaches, championship golf and hundreds of shops and restaurants.

Activities include eco-tours featuring dolphin watching, canoeing and kayaking, fresh and salt water fishing, as well as theatres, museums and art galleries, African-American Gullah, and garden tours, bird watching in pristine habitats and many custom-designed programs.

You will find our communities internationally famous, featuring Hilton Head Island, a true world-class destination and Beaufort with its glimpses of the Lowcountry life and history. Cities like Walterboro, home to the South Carolina Artisans Center, Port Royal with its estuarium and Parris Island Marine Recruit Depot offer intriguing sites to visit.

Edisto Beach, a family-oriented beach town and Daufuskie Island, a surprising sea island offer new places to explore. Inland communities like Hampton, Varnville and Estill surprise visitors with their Southern charm and historic resources. You will also find Bluffton to be quaint and historic – with an eccentric twist.

Venture off of Interstate 95 and you will find many more surprises in Yemassee, Point South, Ridgeland and Hardeeville. The Lowcountry region offers first-class hotels and resorts, smaller inns and hotels, vacation homes and rental condos, fully-equipped villas and camp grounds.

Wherever you choose to stay, you are sure to receive a level of service and amenities that will ensure an enjoyable stay for your vacation experience. Come, experience all we have to offer and you will soon see why we call the South Carolina Lowcountry home!

Thank you for your interest in discovering and exploring the region we love
to call home.

Please take time to visit the Frampton Plantation (our Lowcountry Visitors
Center & Museum) located at Exit 33, just off Interstate 95, a gateway to
the Lowcountry.
