About Beaufort

Historic Beaufort, South Carolina and the surrounding Lowcountry welcome visitors with centuries of history as well as a full slate of modern amenities and things to do. Beaufort is the second oldest city in South Carolina and its historical significance lives and breathes through its natural harbor location, Antebellum mansions, plantations, tabby wall remains and the continued influences of the Gullah culture, art and cuisine. Beaufort’s uniqueness and charm is that it’s ‘quietly historic’ …there’s nothing in your face about it. As you visit landmarks, it seems as if you’re one of a secret few who have discovered its hidden treasures. It’s a genuine jewel on the South Carolina Atlantic coast. We are a festival area and a destination for weddings, golf, movie locations, bike tours, history buffs, Marine graduations, fishing, water sports, romantic getaways, beach vacations and retirement.
