Welcome To Beaufort, SC

Tucked into winding, historic Antebellum streets framed by natural foliage and centuries-old, moss-draped live oak trees, Beaufort is more than a hidden Lowcountry gem—it's a transformative destination that has charmed visitors since 1512. Best viewed by relaxing walking tour, private group car or motorcoach bus, or from the seat of a horse-drawn carriage, you're sure to see one stunning Civil War era home after another—many with stunning waterfront views.

Step-on guided island coach tours, fishing charters, boat and kayak tours showcase the rich history, Gullah heritage and natural beauty of the coastal Lowcountry. Sport fishing, bike tours, horseback riding and adventure tours are popular year-round on our protected, pristine beaches and peaceful intracoastal waterways.  

Tour tickets are available for purchase daily at our Visitor Center. Walking, van, boat and carriage tours are offered by certified professional guides regularly. Contact us for pricing and current scheduling information.
