Under the live oaks, among the Spanish moss, amidst the antebellum houses and other architectural delights. All that for free. Can't beat that!

This is one of my favorite places in all of Beaufort. The Historic Point is filled with amazing architecture, beautiful old trees and moss, and real history that one can feel it just walking or driving through.

The historic Beaufort area is great. Walked around for a couple of hours looking at beautiful old homes that have been well maintained. A must stop if you are in the area. Downtown Beaufort is also worth the time.

The point is loaded with beautiful Antebellum homes surrounded by lush gardens and framed with tall oaks draped in Spanish Moss. This is truly a step back to another era. Go, drive slowly or walk. It is worth the time spent.
