"R" is for Oysters

Any month with an "R" in it means oyster season is here, so pull out your favorite shucking knife and dive into our South Carolina Oyster Guide. If you live along the coast, or like to visit, you know that oyster roasts are as integral to fall as football, fairs, harvest moons, and the coming holidays.

Below you'll find fun festivals, oyster shell recycling information, and a history of our state's once-great oyster industry.

As SC author and oyster expert Vic Burrell aptly explains, an oyster roast is "always a crowd pleaser and follows the theory of entertainment that if you are standing up and eating with your fingers, you've got to be having fun."
