If Beaufort may seem like a location straight from a movie, that’s because it is! You may remember a little movie called Forrest Gump. Among other scenes, when Gump is saving his comrades in Vietnam, they were actually by the lagoon at Hunting Island. Beaufort seems to be the epitome of a small town, where everybody is connected and knows your name. The great thing is that whether you’re downtown or out on the beaches at Hunting Island, you always feel like you are on vacation.
