Beaufort, SC is one of South Carolina’s oldest and most scenic coastal cities. Located on Port Royal Island in the southern-most corner of the state, parts of Beaufort look straight out of the Antebellum-era.

You can spot dolphins on a Beaufort River tour, meander through the Port Royal Farmers Market, or enjoy a bike trail surrounded by spooky moss-covered live oaks reminiscent of Savannah.

One of Beaufort’s top claims to fame is seafood. Several festivals are dedicated to the fresh shrimp and seafood caught right from the waters of the Beaufort River, including the Beaufort Shrimp Festival in October and the Taste of Beaufort Festival in May.
