Low Country - South Carolina: Skilled Nursing Communities and Nursing Homes


View Community Listings

The South Carolina Lowcountry is a term used to describe the state's coastal counties, generally south of and including, Charleston. The region includes the South Carolina Sea Islands. The commonly accepted counties of the Lowcountry are Beaufort, Jasper, Hampton, and Colleton counties.

Applied more broadly, the term can also refer to all areas in the state below the fall line, including Berkeley, Charleston, Dorchester, Georgetown, Sumter, Clarendon, Lee, Williamsburg and Horry counties.

The Lowcountry does not contain any major economic centers; though one might select Hilton Head Island as the place of most significance, it is difficult to access from the rest of the Low Country and as a resort community has little else of commercial significance. Most business that cannot be conducted locally is transacted in Charleston or Savannah, Georgia.
