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.

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

Great place for a stroll while visiting Beaufort. If you miss this neighborhood you will miss a lot. The historical residences are fantastic to see. Enjoy!
