Many regions in our country use a phrase or an unofficial name to describe themselves. Once established, that name often takes on a life of its own. Businesses and organizations incorporate the phrase into their names and eventually people in the area start using it in their everyday vocabulary.
The phrase “Low Country” is used for the region around Charleston, SC. They spell it as one word….”Lowcountry”. Google “Lowcountry” and see the results you get.
The food, culture and geography support the fact that Charleston, SC is considered one of the prettiest and most desired cities in America…and we can testify to that perception.
Here are some pics found on Flickr that perhaps bring out the essence of the Lowcountry.
