This area is full of beautiful historic homes and cottages with gorgeous water views. It was fun just to walk through the area and look at the homes.

I spend a lot of time in the point throughout the year. The homes are amazing, the scenery breathtaking, and the quiet welcoming. There are so many secret places to find so I suggest walking around. There are walking tours during tourist season that teach you the unique history of beaufort and the point. The residents are friendly and love... More

This was not our first stroll through the point and won't be our last. Love the live oaks. We actually enjoy the cottages more than the mansions.

Horse, bus and walking tours can take you through this treasure land of Antebellum architecture, or you can stop by the Visitors' Center for a self-guided walking map. Part of the charm lies in the huge live oaks with their drapes of Spanish moss. Be sure to complement this tour with a walk up and back down historic Bay Street... More

Wonderful to spend the time in this area. We took a carriage ride around and took in the history, Spanish moss and very laid back experience, a pleasant way to spend the afternoon.

we were there the week before Hallowe'en and all these magnificant mansions had fantastic displays of skeletons , pumpkinns, spiders etc on their front porches and lawns. Each home was more magnificant than the last and well worth taking the time to stroll around and take in the sights. Unfortuntely we did not realise until too late that we could... More

For once I didn't feel that the homes and " history " were all reconstructed. The area is absolutely beautiful and definitely worth a visit . We just wondered around but we're sorry we'd come 2 days too early for the Fall festival when we could have seen inside some of the homes. Also if we'd been better organised we... More

Basically drive or walk around and get lost in this residential neighborhood. It spans several blocks. When you see lots of gorgeous homes and Spanish moss laden trees, you are in the right area.
