Low country is in South Carolina.

The Low-country is the area of the south running the coast from Mid-coastal Georgia to North Carolina. The Low-country is characterized in many areas physically by its actual elevation below sea level. The culture of the Low Country is different than that of other parts of South Carolina with its roots in Gullah and Geeche cultures.

The Lowcountry extends from Georgetown (just south of Myrtle Beach) down through Charleston, and finally to Daufuskie Island, at the Georgia border. This coastal region is distinguished by an amazing natural environment-- miles of scenic marshes, winding rivers, estuaries where fresh & salt water mix and dolphins and shrimp (and sharks) swim.

The barrier islands off the mainland are called the Sea Islands, and Beaufort has long been known as the "Queen of the Sea Islands." Beaufort's entire residential & waterfront main street area are designated a Federal Landmark Historic District. The city was established in 1711. Helpful links about Beaufort-
