★ historic, eco-magical, & victorious ★
Beaufort SC has festivals on the water, history in the homes, art on the walls, architecture on the streets, gardens in the shade, drama on the stage, and fresh seafood on the tables— all twenty minutes from the beach and miles from hectic.
Explore the Queen of the Sea Islands year-round. The 'Good to Know' section gives context to the tidal rivers, the Gullah people, Spanish Moss, oysters, and other Lowcountry intricacies. The 60+ entries mapped in the historic district amount to a great day or two or three of relishing a small but not sleepy town; add your own excursions to old village Port Royal, the barrier islands, and beyond with geographic filters. Sort through 'Performances & the Arts' and 'Festivals & Active Fun' and 'In & On the Water' to find the scene that suits your speed, or choose from the 10 recommended tours-- on foot, kayak, boat, bike, or horse.
If you're moving to Beaufort, this guide is a friendly introduction to the people and events of the past 300 years. Welcome.
