NEW ANIMAL CAMPUS IS STATE-OF-THE-ART

Augustin may have been adopted by now, but if not, the friendly, 60-pound golden retriever mix is in good hands at the new Beaufort County Animal Campus in Okatie. He’s got a spacious kennel with a doggy door separating private inside and outside areas, a large play yard where he can run with his friends, staff who walk him on a leash on a path around a small lake and volunteers who pet him. When potential adopters come to see Augustin, they’ll take him outside to an acquaintance yard or, if it’s raining, they’ll get to know him in a comfortable meet-and-greet room.

LOWCOUNTRY CAPTAIN IS HOOKED ON GREAT WHITES

Chip Michalove has always been obsessed with sharks.

Luckily for him, there are plenty of them out in the waters surrounding the Lowcountry.

“When I started out, I thought there were two or three great whites off of our coast,” he said. “But we really have over 1,000.”

PADDLE BACK IN TIME WITH OUTSIDE HILTON HEAD DURING A TRIP TO PAGE ISLAND

More than three centuries have passed since the Yemassee left their historic home in the Georgia mountains, looking to escape encroachment by Spanish settlers and make a new life amid the bountiful land and waters around what we now know as Hilton Head and Daufuskie islands.

Summer vacation is almost here, and with it the annual question faced by parents: what are we going to do with the kids? Whether you need care for them while you work, are looking to keep them entertained for a week or two, or just want to get children out of the house for a few hours so they don’t spend the whole day playing video games or watching netflix, the lowcountry has a great selection of summer camps.

HILTON HEAD ONCE WAS HOME TO YEMASSEE AND CUSABO TRIBES

Yemasse Lowcountry

In the days before Hilton Head Island became the world-class resort destination it is today, it was home to Native American tribes. By the time William Hilton arrived in the Lowcountry in 1663, these tribes — believed by experts to be the descendants of Siberian nomads — had been living on the land surrounding the Port Royal Sound for more than 3,000 years.

TWO LEGENDARY ARCHITECTS – ONE LOWCOUNTRY ADDRESS.

The same way there will always be a debate over who is the greatest golfer to ever tee up a ball, there will never be a definitive answer to who is the best architect to design a golf course. But certainly there are a few names that currently – and forever will – rise to the top. Two such names are the architects behind the two championship courses at the private golf community of Colleton River Club: Pete Dye and Jack Nicklaus.

From color to patterns to neutrals, there really isn’t a wrong way to celebrate spring.

NEW RIVER LINEAR TRAIL OFFERS A WALK BACK IN TIME

As Bluffton’s population continues to grow and new developments to change its landscape, it’s easy to feel like the natural beauty and history that define this once-sleepy coastal town are disappearing.

For example, little evidence still remains of Bluffton’s Civil War-era rice plantations or the timber that once stretched from the May River as far as the eye could see. Gone are the days when vital raw materials and finished goods arrived in town via the Seaboard Air Line Railway instead of U.S. 278.
