Great place if you are a history buff. Get a brouchuer at the front gate and read about all the interesting people who are there. A great way to spend a day outside.

Best for kids as not much below the surface. Old buildings staged to share basic history--good for elementary aged kids--you must pay to access. Graveyard is interesting, if a bit unkempt (if warm bring bug spray and wear flats as riddled with roots, rocks etc) and it is free so that is nice. They also run a basic tour bus... More

Don't miss visiting the Old Burying Ground and make sure you get a brochure for a self-guided tour so you get the history on all of the important grave sites. Filled with history and sweeping, southern Live Oak trees, this is a calming and spiritual place.

Just one block off Front Street, this is worth the trip. The grave stones are beautiful and the history quite interesting. Wish there would have been the guide pamphlet inside the cemetery as noted, but we went back online to figure a few things out. Great history, location.

Revolutionary and Civil War cemetery. Be sure to see the soldier buried standing up! Well within walking distance of the Historic District and right by the beautiful Ann's United Methodist Church which is also beautiful at sunset.

The graveyard is extremely old, and if you can, find someone to tell you the stories both fact and fiction of the older graves If not, pick up a brochure. The burying grounds is well-kept and the trees, with Spanish moss hanging from the branches, is perfect for a quick tour ands great spot to develop a summer school report.... More

We went in October and it is absolutely beautiful. Full of history and serenity. Great place to take pictures and see some of the history of the headstones of Beaufort!
