Yes, there are horse drawn carriage tours and walking tours. Both are good....depends if you want to walk or ride.

No matter if you walk or ride, the route through the historic district will be the same. If you prefer to do a self-guided tour, the visitor's center has literature available so you can replicate the tour at your own pace.

Have a great time!

Been there...Very nice but beware where you park. You MUST buy a parking pass at the machines or you will be ticketed VERY promptly. We had no idea we had to buy a pass as such it is not clearly stated any where. A very convenient fine of 35.00 payable by an easy credit card envelope. Left a bad taste for both of us. Seemed to be a money grab.

@sab - sorry you missed the rather obvious signs and the ticket kiosks - Beaufort has had that parking system for at least 3 years. The rates are very reasonable IMO, so I don't see it as a "money grab".

We highly recommend Jon Sharp's Walking tour. Very detailed and you see it all. Lots of stops so not tiring.

@stevedec only 3 years. Sorry obvious money grab. Consignment shops, art shops,and antique shops cannot provide needed revenue.
