The Southeastern United States has so many unique and beautiful places to visit. One of the most popular travel destinations in the country is the South Carolina Lowcountry. With historic downtowns, pristine beaches, great cuisine and famous southern hospitality, the South Carolina Lowcountry is the perfect place for a quick trip or a long vacation.
Charleston, South Carolina
Perhaps the most well known city in the South Carolina Lowcountry is Charleston. Its notoriety is due in large part to it being voted by Conde Nast Traveler as the top city in the US for that last three consecutive years. Pay “Chuck Town” a visit and you’ll see why it keeps on racking up accolades.
Along with five Charleston beaches to choose from, downtown has great shopping, museums, and dining. Famous King Street has boutiques and shops to please everyone and you’ll be able to find everything from Charleston souvenirs to jewelry, to cooking spices and sweetgrass baskets at the City Market.
When you’re in Charleston, there are some great Select Registry Inns to choose from. Two Meeting Street is an historic mansion with a large veranda, a yard flu of azaleas and a view of the harbor. The nine guest rooms will provide you with great southern comfort. The Governor’s House Inn is another beautifully restored historic building near all the sights and activities downtown.
Beaufort, South Carolina
Down the coast from Charleston, Beaufort is another destination in the South Carolina Lowcountry worth a visit. Beaufort has small town charm and great beaches. The city is also rich in history and culture, with museums and historic sites lending an opportunity for visitors to learn about the Gullah culture and the region’s place in African-American history.
If you’re a golfer, Beaufort is a great destination in the South Carolina Lowcountry for you. Several world-class courses including the Parris Island Golf Course and the Sanctuary Golf Club @ Cat Island await those wanting to take on the fairways.
