Historic houses and Spanish moss

We took a walk on the Point but some people take carriage rides. Extraordinary houses, churches, the grave of Robert Smalls, and many other sights. A must when in Beaufort.

Beaufort's historic Point neighborhood is special because it has not been "tarted up" with sidewalks, curbs, or an abundance of street lights. The ancient live oaks reign supreme, thank goodness the city fathers protect them from over pruning and street paving!

Did a carriage tour of The Point. The history is amazing. The homes are phenomenal. It is great to see how preserved these gems are.

Relaxing view of the water. Beautiful homes. Simplistic lifestyle. Gulls soaring over the blue water. Peaceful serene atmosphere.

beaufort was spared from the destruction of the civil, as the north took immediate control of the town. take a tour and learn the unique history of these beautiful homes. see where "the big chill" and "the great santini" were filmed along with many other movies.

Strolling through the streets of the Beaufort's Point district was serene and lovely, both the old homes and the views over the vast marshes and water.

Over the years we’ve toured The Point by carriage, by car, and on foot, and we never grow tired of it. Don’t visit Beaufort without treating yourself to one of the better collections of historic homes in this part of the country. The waterfront scenery isn’t bad either. Bring your camera.

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
