Dream Towns: Beaufort, North Carolina
Photographer Gary Clark

Your Main Street Has:

The Cru Wine Bar, Blue Moon Bistro, tapas at Aqua, Royal James Cafe (great burgers!), Rocking Chair Book Store, and North Carolina Maritime Museum.

Your favorite restaurant could be: The Beaufort Grocery Company for local produce and fresh seafood. (Open for lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch.)

Your neighbors are: a diverse mix. Given Beaufort’s location on the mid-Atlantic, your neighbor might be a retired CEO, part of a local family that can trace back 200 years, a schoolteacher, a former round-the-world sailor, an artist, or a marine scientist.
