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.

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!
