Beaufort is the second oldest city in South Carolina. Think: Spanish moss-lined streets, 18th-century antebellum homes, and a meticulously restored historic downtown district. Regarding antebellum homes, we suggest staying in one of the many preserved and renovated bed & breakfasts like the Anchorage 1770 (this B&B has a rooftop bar that faces the inner coastal waters), the Beaufort Inn, or the Cuthbert House Inn.
Home to the Reconstruction Era National Monument, which was proclaimed by President Obama in 2017, Beaufort is also home to The Penn Center, where Martin Luther King, Jr. drafted his “I Have a Dream” speech. From planning a short trip to Hunting Island to riding the Spanish Moss Trail, an eight-mile bike ride which runs through Beaufort and neighboring Port Royal, there is no shortage of things to do in Beaufort. Conveniently situated in the heart of the South Carolina’s Lowcountry, Beaufort is perfect for short day trips and excursions.
