Vintage Lowcountry Drive-In

The Lowcountry of South Carolina is home to one of America’s few remaining drive-in movie theaters! The thriving yet nostalgic Highway 21 Movie theatre is located in our own little town of Beaufort, and shows double-features every night of the week, starting the first movie shortly after it is dark enough to project onto the big screen. With two separate screens, the theatre is able to show four different movies each night. The full concession stand has a screened-in dining area, but most moviegoers prefer the authentic experience of eating their movie snacks in their vehicles during the show.

If you come to watch the show, feel free to email us or swing by our real estate offices downtown! We’ll gladly share advice for the best places to eat and stay while you’re here.

Marsh Tacky

The Marsh Tacky is a horse breed native and unique to the South Carolina Lowcountry. Once freely roaming through the marshes, swamps, and beaches, wild Marsh Tackies became the true everyman horse. Settlers, Native American Tribes, and later African Slaves all used the Marsh Tacky for everything from farm chores to hunting. During the Civil War, the Marsh Tackies were exclusively used by Francis Marion, more commonly known in history books as the Swamp Fox, as well as other troops from the Lowcountry.

In modern times, the Marsh Tacky breed is considered one of the most critically endangered horse breeds in the world. Only around four hundred individuals currently exist, but they are known as a calm, smart breed, excellent for almost any use. On many years, the Marsh Tacky Association sponsors a breed-exclusive race along the beautiful beaches of Hilton Head Island or Daufuski Island. If you visit Lowcountry to see the race, feel free to stop by and visit us in our sales office! We’d love to show you around town.

Salt Marshes

The Salt Marshes are just one of many distinctive parts of the South Carolina Lowcountry, but their importance to the area is frequently underestimated. Of course, most locals know the joys of kayaking or boating through the salt marshes in search of beautiful birds to watch and fresh oysters to harvest, but few realize the staggering number of species that call the marshes home. Three-fourths of all types of seafood harvested in or around South Carolina waters require the protection of the salt marshes for survival – even the largest groupers harvested from the Atlantic spend time in the salt marshes as small fry!

For a more extensive list of species that are dependent on our beautiful Salt Marshes, visit the SC DNR website. For fishing tales and tips, drop by our sales office and ask for Jeremy Taylor!
