The Point is a beautiful residential district adjacent to and just east of the highly commercial [yet oddly charming] Bay Street in downtown Beaufort. You can walk or drive it. We did the latter, and nobody seemed to mind that we were creeping down the streets at 5-10 mph. I LOVE that the residents give SERIOUS attention to maintaining these... More

A great walk from downtown - literally a block off the Main Street. Enjoy the beautiful waterfront views and historic homes along the path. Be sure to have a picture with the cannons.

The Point is a lovely place for a peaceful walk. The neighborhood is simultaneously full of history and very much alive and in the present. It is wonderful to see homes so well cared for and loved. If you like architecture, or just the aesthetics of old stately homes and live oaks with Spanish moss, you will love it. You... More

The Point is laden with gorgeous, stately old mansions built to show prosperity, as well as small cottages and even a couple of (sigh!) ranch style modern houses. For gawking and dreaming, it is a great walk and to mix with a few locals who also are walking or jogging, it can't be beat, since everyone greets or chats! Each... More

Beautiful homes in this area. It's easy to walk around and find your way through this area. It's well worth the walk. Driving though cause you to miss some of the homes, so try walking. You'll see more and enjoy the slow pace of the area.

Antebellum construction, Beaufort-T construction, massive live oaks, resurrection ferns, tidal ponds, children playing on porches or in open green spaces, lawn bowling or community Thanksgiving dinners...you can find it all in The Point in Beaufort's Historic District!

My wife and I spent four days in beautiful and quiet Beaufort. This area is so full of history. Beaufort was occupied by Union forces following the Battle of Port Royal. Chartered in 1711, it is the second-oldest city in South Carolina, behind Charleston. The city is renowned for its scenic location and for maintaining a historic character by preservation... More

What a gorgeous, peaceful place! We were a bit short on time and it was sprinkling rain so we took a carriage ride to get an overview of the area. Our guide was very informative and entertaining. Fortunately we had time (and sun) another day to go back on foot for closer looks, but if you don't, the carriage ride... More
