Beaufort, South Carolina

Found on the east coast of South Carolina, this coastal town is small but with a rich history interlaced with the Old South’s past. Its streets are dotted with antebellum and Civil War homes and stately oak trees covered in moss.

A favorite spot? The Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park and the store along Bay and Carteret streets. History buffs will relish in the Beaufort History Museum. If you ever visit, plan to stay in one of the romantic B&Bs or inns, the Rhett House Inn is a perfect example.

When the sun begins to set, you should go over to Saltus River Grill for waterfront views and some Lowcountry specialties. Beaufort ranks as one of the most charming small towns in South Carolina. Find out why this is a hidden gem and plan your next visit!

    I grew up in Old Greenwich, CT with Tod’s Pt., now called Greenwich Pt. It’s about 64 acres of beautiful beaches, hiking trails, picnic areas & a lovely view of the New York City skyline. No place could be better.

  2. Visited 17 years in a row…July 4th week is great!….found a great inn 4 miles south of town…great seafood, shops. As a veteran loved the July 4th parade. Go back every year.

  3. I love Cape May and their lovely “Painted Ladies”. The Victorian homes are beautiful; so glad to see them preserved. The beach is wide and not as crowded as other NJ beaches. My favorite beach town. Enjoyed the most in off-season without crowds.
