Travel Destinations | Best of Beaufort
So it’s not surprising that Beaufort has been rediscovered in the 21st century as a popular vacation and retirement destination. The restaurants, shops, art galleries, and museums on downtown Bay Street
are a stroller’s delight, and the adjacent Henry Chambers
Waterfront Park hosts a year-round calendar of community
