Even The New York Times Travel agrees Beaufort is the place to see and we agree.

"Petite Beaufort has the appeal of a much larger city (restaurants, festivals and art galleries) without giving up its small-town, Low Country charms (bike lanes, walking paths and romantic park benches overlooking the water). ~  Daniel Schaffer The New York Times Travel

Southern Living 2019 ~ Beaufort, SC #2 in Small Southern Town

Beautiful Beaufort by the sea 26 miles from Yemassee.  It is an amazing coastal town you do not want to miss.  Dating back to 1565 when Pedro Mendez was establishing St. Augustine he was in Beaufort, settled in what is now known as Parris Island.  Toggling back and forth between the then sister cities, Beaufort was known as the Spanish Capital of Florida for 11 years.  When you see Port Royal on the St. Augustine maps that is our Beaufort.  A monument stands on the settlement atesting to all of the milestones they accomplished.  Relics from the site have been excavated and put in a city building in downtown in the historic district.  There are over 70 homes predating the Civil War and some even the Revolutionary war in the fabulous town.  The discoveries are endless.
