In July, the Lowcountry welcomes thousands of visitors who flock here for precious vacations with family and friends. Tourism is one of the largest job creators in the Lowcountry and we are grateful that so many families want to spend their time and money here.

At Monthly, we love the looks on the faces of visiting adults and children when they first see all the beauty the Lowcountry has to offer, from the sunsets to the beaches and wildlife. Our features are full of suggestions for summer fun, from nature walks to aerial adventures to opportunities to adopt one of our resident or visiting bottlenose dolphins. In this issue, read about how this program helps fund dolphin research at USCB.
