At the helm September 2022

At the Helm

There is so much to love about the Lowcountry, and it’s not much of a secret anymore: we are in a great place to live, work and play.

Each September we publish our annual City Guide, which offers our readers a chance to learn a little more about the places we love, including a snapshot by the numbers of growth and development.

Learn a little about our area’s history, and see what’s on the horizon. This issue is our love letter to the Lowcountry.

And there’s plenty to love.

Our cover this month is designed by accomplished artist Charles Cashwell. Learn more about Cashwell inside this issue, including his artistic passions.

As the weather cools, the bridal scene heats up. Get some bridal ideas from our featured wedding, and check out trends in engagement rings.

The community we love features people who love the community back. Joe Distelheim gave back by being a mentor to many. Read about an award named in his honor that’s made an immediate impact.

Hannah Anderson takes time to care for those who need help during times of crisis. Learn about the Bluffton Police Department’s first community mental health advocate.

One thing that holds people back from owning rental homes is the management. Why not let the professionals do it?

Look at our Property Management Guide, which can help you choose a local property management company that can make the whole process a breeze.

The sports season is heating up, and there are big games nightly. Enjoy the action at home with tips for the ultimate tailgating experience.

We hope you enjoy reading about the Lowcountry as much as we enjoyed putting this month’s magazine together.
