subject verb agreement
In the case, Lowcounty is the subject and is treated a single subject and therefore should it agree with includes?
The Lowcountry, popular for its Gullah culture, historic sites and resorts, includes the cities of Bluffton and Beaufort and the Sea Islands of St. Helena, Daufuskie, and Hilton Head.
I agree with Lewis, but question whether sea islands should be capitalized. Although Sea Islands may be a proper name, as is Lowcountry here, it does not seem to be used as a proper name in this sentence. It is used as a parallel to cities (not capitalized), and I would not capitalize it.
Now, this is merely my sense of the usage, and you may wish to disagree. Whatever you decide, you should be consistent in how your capitalize the word pair.
