Southern Living’s “Why Beaufort is the Best Small Town in South Carolina”

You might think a dreamy coastal town like Beaufort, South Carolina, would happily rest on its laurels, but not so. Already loaded with accolades, Beaufort (BEW-furt) keeps raising the bar, adding new reasons to come, whether you’re a visitor or a transplant.

We recently checked in with local innkeeper Amy Lesesne. She and her husband, Frank, own the historic Anchorage 1770. “Beaufort has put in a big day dock at Waterfront Park, so all of our restaurants and shops are accessible by boat now,” Amy said. “Frank is in the final stages of getting his captain’s license, so we’ll begin doing boat tours out of the inn—anything from a 90-minute sunset cruise with cocktails and nibbles to a half-day trip to one of the nearby islands and beaches."

Also attracting travelers, Amy said, is the Reconstruction Era National Monument, just a few minutes from downtown Beaufort. And the Pat ConroyLiterary Center has moved to a larger location downtown. Nature lovers will be excited to hear that Ted Turner has sold his St. Phillips Island to South Carolina State Parks, which now offers 6-hour day trips there.
