Rolling Through the Lowcountry: Bicycle Tours Explore Best of the Coastal South
Southern bicycle tour highlights history, natural beauty, and genteel charm between Charleston and Savannah
The scenic coastal area of South Carolina and Georgia, a stretch of flat plains, marsh and rivers, is referred to as the Lowcountry. This area is as atmospheric as the Spanish moss that drapes from the live oaks. Travelers start in Charleston and end in Savannah, making a stop in the beautiful Beaufort. Daily excursions from these cities will have cyclists riding hidden back roads, discovering local history and the area’s magnetic charisma.
In Charleston, cyclists explore lush gardens, and Mount Pleasant’s Waterfront Park and Patriots Point for a close-up look at the USS Yorktown. Travelers continue to Sullivan’s Island and its Ft. Moultrie to take in the serene beaches, rich marshes and striking views of the Atlantic Ocean. For an authentic Southern excursion, the tour visits Boone Hall, one of America’s most photographed plantations as well as one of its oldest working plantations. It has produced crops continuously for more than 320 years.
In Beaufort, guests will cycle past farms, fishing communities, plantations and ruins as they make our way to Hunting Island State Park, often referred to as a cyclists’ dream. Travelers will get to climb to the top of historic lighthouses and have a swim in the warm ocean on their daily rides in this coastal paradise. In Savannah, travelers relax, shop, or walk through the city’s unique squares: each has its own identity and informative historical markers.
Along the way, travelers will be informed and entertained by their attentive local host, Alex Graham, an 11th-generation South Carolinian. Alex and his genial wife, Karen, show off their home with the gems that savvy locals know. The Lowcountry is a region full of history and charm that ensures that it is a lifetime memory.
