Beaufort / Hilton Head / Savannah, GA Region

Hauntingly beautiful is perhaps the best way to describe South Carolina's Lowcountry and Resort Islands. Colorful wildlife, lush forests and jungles, historic towns and villages, unspoiled beaches that abound with natural beauty, inviting resort islands — that’s the Lowcountry. Miles of white beaches washed clean by the tide — free of tracks except those left by a hermit crab or sea turtle, endless marshes alive with the calls of birds and rustling flight, and trees laden with Spanish moss add to its ethereal setting. Developed in harmony with nature, famous Hilton Head Island is the largest sea island between New Jersey and Florida, covering 42 square miles of broad beaches, nine marinas, over two dozen championship golf courses and more tennis courts than any other resort of its size. You can learn more about this unique area by visiting the Beaufort Chamber's website.( http://www.beaufortsc.org/)
