The Lowcountry of South Carolina is known for its natural beauty. From driftwood beaches to Cypress swamps, the region’s diverse landscape has inspired art, literature, and film.
South Carolina’s Lowcountry region encompasses the coastal land that is at or near sea level. The most convenient way to see the region is by car along Highway 17, with a side trip to Beaufort. There are several state parks along the coast. Charleston County also has an incredible network of local parks that are inexpensive to visit.
