The Lowcountry is a mostly flat or rolling hills geographic area of South Carolina bordered on the east by the coastline of the Atlantic Ocean and to the west by the Piedmont or Midland areas of the state.

The border between the Piedmont region("Upstate") and the Atlantic Coastal Plain(the "Lowcountry") is called the Fall Line to mark the line where the upland rivers "fall" to the lower Atlantic Coastal Plain.
SC has several geographic areas starting at the eastern border of the state at the Atlantic coastline with the flat lands of the coastal Lowcountry to the rich rolling farmland in the Midlands and Piedmont areas,to the lovely Foothills and finally the Appalachian Mountains in the upper NW part of South Carolina.

Three geographic land areas define South Carolina; the Atlantic Coastal Plain, the Piedmont, and the Blue Ridge region. The eastern Atlantic Coastal Plains are referred to locally as the South Carolina "Lowcountry" and the Piedmont and the Blue Ridge region as the "Up Country

The Low Country is a term used to describe South Carolina's coastal counties, generally south of and including, Charleston. The region includes the South Carolina Sea Islands. The commonly accepted counties of the Low Country are Beaufort, Jasper, Hampton, and Colleton counties.

Applied more broadly, the term can also refer to all areas in the state below the fall line, including Berkeley, Charleston, Dorchester, Georgetown, Sumter, Clarendon, Lee, Williamsburg and Horry counties.

The Low Country does not contain any major economic centers; though one might select Hilton Head Island as the place of most significance, it is difficult to access from the rest of the Low Country and as a resort community has little else of commercial significance. Most business that cannot be conducted locally is transacted in Charleston or Savannah, Georgia.

Other significant cities in the region include Beaufort, Hampton, and Walterboro.
