The Lowcountry is framed by the Atlantic Ocean on the east border, Charleston on the north border and Georgia to the south. The Lowcountry has cultural and a rich and extraordinary heritage. The splendid coastal sector of Beaufort, is composed of roughly 350,000 acres of marshes. Here the rivers of Ashepoo, Combahee and Edisto finish their voyage by running in the sea.
