Weekend in Beaufort, South Carolina
Sultry style and Lowcountry charm reign in this historic waterfront community.
BeachesMuch of the town is surrounded by tidal wetlands, but the Beaufort River (left) has a small stretch of beach edged by marsh grass near the long boardwalk and boat launch.
Hunting Island State Park
Only a 16-mile drive east, Hunting Island State Park is a 5,000-acre preserve with jungle-lush foliage, an 1859 lighthouse, a long fishing pier, and four miles of pristine Atlantic beach.
