Here’s what Travel + Leisure had to say about the Queen of the Sea Islands:

Hilton Head Island and Charleston might get all the acclaim when it comes to South Carolina Lowcountry destinations, but the state has plenty of small towns also worth visiting. Stroll through downtown Beaufort (with a sweet tea in hand), walk along the beach at nearby Hunting Island State Park, and try some fresh seafood at a local restaurant. Learn about the area’s history and about Gullah culture with a visit to the recently established Reconstruction Era National Historical Park and the Penn Center.”
