When Hollywood movie scouts need the quintessential southern setting, they frequently call on Beaufort. Tucked among South Carolina's Sea Islands, this 300-year-old town with antebellum mansions and moss-covered oaks has been the backdrop for such blockbusters as Forrest Gump, Prince of Tides and The Big Chill.

Historic Charm to the Max

But fame hasn't spoiled it. The town is still far enough off the beaten path that you have to really look for it. In fact, many people find Beaufort by boat because the town overlooks one of the most scenic locations on the Intracoastal Waterway.

Of course, newcomers will quickly realize that there's more to the town than just a pretty face. It is one of only a handful of U.S. towns that has had its entire downtown designated an National Historic Landmark. Its history is facinating.

Filled with mansions built by the wealthy plantation owners before the Civil War, Beaufort was one of the only Southern towns chosen to be occupied by Union troops, rather than destroyed. More than 50 historic structures have been identified in Beaufort, including many lovely private homes that have been beautifully restored and are now available to view via professionally-guided walking, bus, or horse-drawn carriage tours. Special spring and fall events offer locals and visitors the opportunity to tour several private homes and gardens.

Art galleries, antique shops, and modern boutiques dot the entire downtown and uptown walking districts, along with fine dining restaurants and quick eateries. The moderate climate allows for enjoyable outdoor meals and/or park enjoyment almost year-round. It's also close to Hilton Head Island, Charleston and Savannah, GA.

Beaufort boasts some of the most beautiful waterfront real estate and homes for sale. Many have deepwater docks for 24/7 access to the many creeks and waterways that permeate the area. The boating and fishing in the Beaufort waterways is legendary.
