Restaurants With the Best Views in the Lowcountry

Restaurants With the Best Views in the Lowcountry

This famous Hilton Head restaurant, located on Broad Creek, lives up to its name. The history of The Old Oyster Factory dates back to the early 1900s, when Broad Creek’s oyster beds were ripe for the picking. The Broad Creek Oyster Factory was established in 1925, but the area surrounding the factory was declared protected in the 1990s, leaving the building empty and the cannery defunct. Where a chapter ends, a new one begins! Expanded from a one-story concrete building to the expansive restaurant it is today, The Old Oyster Factory now serves as a hub for delicious food, Lowcountry tradition, and gorgeous views.

Why Are So Many People Moving to Bluffton?

The charming coastal community of Bluffton is quite possibly the quintessential small southern town in South Carolina. Okay, make that small-ish. Bluffton has grown exponentially since the last census was taken, seeing approximately a +76% uptick in population from 2010-2018, according to U.S. Census reports. With that kind of growth, the question begs to be asked: Why in the world are so many people moving to Bluffton? We’re glad you asked!
