My husband and I took a self-guided our of this neighborhood and enjoyed seeing the beautiful historic homes along the way. The streets are canopied with large trees, and many areas allow you to see the water. It's a nice, quiet activity sure to please!

If you like to walk, this is the place. The homes are beautiful and you are right by the water. You will see homes from The Big Chill, The Great Santini. There are probably others you will recognize. Lovely walk with some history.

The Point in downtown Beaufort is where you can find beautiful old homes on quaint streets with Spanish moss lined trees. The Point begins on the waterfront and winds itself through history. A few homes from the 1700’s remain and some homes were used by the U.S. Army during the Civil War as hospitals. The Castle is a must to... More

This point of interest is conveniently located downtown. The trees and homes are well kept. Worth the stop, especially if they open the drawbridge.

This area is where you will see where the very wealthy of Beaufort live. Old historic Homes with large moss covered live Oaks. Many of the tree branches twist and lay on the ground or go across the roof tops. You can walk, ride bikes, drive your car, or take a carriage ride here. We took a early morning carriage... More
