Begin your Lowcountry tour with a stroll through historic downtown Beaufort and take a break for a relaxing meal at one of its noted restaurants. Just outside of town are moss-draped islands like Dataw and Callawassie that are surrounded by wetlands and waterways. Heading south, you’ll discover the shops and galleries of Bluffton in the heart of a fast-growing area of new residential communities. Just across the bridge are the world-class golf and beach resorts of Hilton Head Island, where you can catch a ferry to explore the natural wonders of Daufuskie Island.
The City of Savannah is one of the South’s crown jewels, with parks and squares that come alive with flowers and foliage in spring, plus a lively riverfront for evening relaxations. Throughout the year, Savannah offers historic sites and a variety of cultural festivals. And along the river, amid the maritime forests and on nearby Skidaway Island, you’ll find new and established retirement communities that feature year-round outdoor activities like golf, fishing, and kayaking.
