Adventures abound in every corner of The Ford, whether it’s boating and kayaking on the water or catching another round of golf at a moment’s notice. Kids out of school for the summer can join in on activities made for the whole family.

The near-perfect weather at our coastal Lowcountry community brings endless opportunities to savor the moment together with neighbors, friends and family. Take a look at the top activities happening at The Ford and the surrounding neighborhood this summer:
