The Coastal Region of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia feature some of our nation's greatest natural treasures: an abundance of superb beaches, barrier islands, estuaries and lagoons, bays and sounds, marshes and forests, rivers and streams. Here are such pristine natural sites as the Mattamuskeet National Wildlife Refuge, Cape Lookout National Seashore, Francis Marion National Forest, Cumberland Island National Seashore, and Hunting Island State Park.
The region's wealth of cultural and historic attractions range from Revolutionary War battlefields and Civil War-era forts to magnificent gardens and plantation homes to thousands of historic buildings in Charleston, South Carolina, and Savannah, Georgia.
