About Us

You are invited to experience the beautiful Beaufort, Port Royal and Sea Islands region where you will find a veritable haven of history and heritage, arts and culture – all wrapped in friendly, warm hospitality.

Imagine water and marsh as far as the eye can see in any direction. The vivid streaks of the summer sunset may call your attention to the horizon, while the spectacular array of long-legged birds keeps you riveted to the water’s edge until you notice dolphins frolicking behind a boat further away. Moss-draped oaks accompanied by the native palmetto trees offer the unmistakable reminders that you have arrived in the magical coastal are of South Carolina known as the Lowcountry.

Hundreds of islands, with most of the inhabited ones connected by bridge, are dotted among rivers, bays and sounds flowing between the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean. Photographic scenery and temperate year-round climate provide the packaging for the rich content that makes the area a special treat for visitors.

If history beckons, you will find days full of adventure in downtown Beaufort, neighboring Port Royal and St. Helena Island where you can browse through the pages of antebellum, Civil War and Reconstruction periods. Artifacts are exhibited and history interpreted in churches, cemeteries, museums, home tours and carefully preserved private homes.
