OUR TOWN | Bluffton

By Charles Dymock

Bluffton

“Bluffton is a community of families,” says local historian Constance Martin-Witter. Located in South Carolina’s Lowcountry, this once square mile town is growing now more than ever. Bluffton’s “Old Town” full of shops, boutiques, and restaurants with fresh seafood. The scenic May River is where you can enjoy boating, fishing, or just relax on the shore. Neighboring major cities like Charleston, Hilton Head, and Savannah ensures you’ll never run out of things to do and places to see.

After two decades, the South Carolina Philharmonic’s annual “Beethoven & Blue Jeans” concert continues to offer classical music in a casual-clothes setting.
