The Bike ride was the way to see the point and the History of the local area. Great scenic views and movie shooting locations for blockbuster movies. Must See!!!

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.

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

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

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.
