Downtown Beaufort entices with small town charm. One of a kind shops and galleries line historic Bay Street. Upscale and casual restaurants offer menus built around local cuisine and opportunities for alfresco dining. Independent book stores stocked with classics, many by locals, make it easy to lose an hour – or an afternoon.
Explore the Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park that winds along the beautiful Beaufort River, rewarding strollers with a vista of marsh islands and intersecting waterways. Horse drawn carriages transport riders through yesteryear in “The Point”, an antebellum neighborhood where elegant mansions stand beneath moss strewn oaks.
