Antebellum homes line a street between moss draped oaks, beside a beautiful bay. Colorful marshes frame the bay and you may passing sailboats on their way to the marina. Restaurants view the bay and feature outdoor dining and excellent southern cuisine. Enjoy swinging in a large park, or browsing through unique shops. You just can't find a more perfect place...

We have stopped in Beaufort for lunch several times on our way from Savannah to Charleston. Great place for lunch and a stoll, to work up an appetite or digest. We park on the western edge of Bay Street and stroll into town. Wander into the side streets too.

Lots of really cool little shops of all varieties. Every shop we visited the people were exceptionally friendly. Several rather unusual shops, like the olive oil and vinegar shop. Lots of places to eat.

It would be nicer if it was a longer walking path. It only took a few minutes to walk the length. Some nice areas to sit and enjoy the breeze. They could use more swinging benches.

Beaufort should pat themselves on the back. They didn't replace historical buildings with new ones, they left wide open spaces on the river for the locals and visitors and they keep it clean and simple. Bravo, can't wait to go back.

A short walk and one or two interesting stores --but, nothing to really write home about. The best thing is finding a place to eat that has outside seating and a view of the waterfront park.
