Region 5: The Lowcountry
The Lowcountry region of South Carolina includes the counties of Beaufort, Berkeley, Charleston, Colleton, Dorchester, Hampton, and Jasper. This area reflects a rich history and cultural diversity that make our region of the state unique. From salt marshes to inland rivers, agriculture-both past and present, and historical ruins dating back to the 1700s, the Lowcountry will intrigue and educate both visitors and natives, alike.
