The Lowcountry always has been a treasure trove of culture, beauty and charm. But there’s a new wave of businesses that is adding a modern, fun twist to our beloved region. Here’s a quick introduction to these shining new stars.


Up your game

Go green

Southern Botanica 149 Riverwalk Blvd., Ridgeland 

If plants had a party, they’d invite Southern Botanica. It’s got everything from “been-there-done-that” cacti to “whoa, what’s that?” wonders. Swing by, plant a seed of friendship, and maybe even take a leafy buddy home.
