During March 2009 I was taking a Fly-Drive trip from the UK to tour some of the States of America's Deep South.
I mostly take the back roads as I really enjoy travelling and finding "small town America," which for me beats all the city life hands down. I choose to visit Beaufort as I already knew it was a nice small town on a nice part of the coast, with a population of just 3,000.
After driving along the main street (Front St) I quickly found the small Visitor Centre. As soon as I was inside I was asked by two lovely ladies if I would like a portion of cake and a cup of coffee,to which I gladly accepted,immediately impressed by such friendlyness towards strangers.
Having asked about accommodation,I was given details of the Pecan Tree B&B in Queen St,just off of Front St.
I managed to get a good deal,5 nights for the price of 4 as it was so early in the season,a real bargain. The accommodation was picture perfect and could simply not be faulted in every respect,in fact I'd go as far to say the best B&B I have stayed during my many visits to America.
Highly recommended, a truly great experience.
