Five Steps to a Romantic Getaway in Beaufort, SC
Step One: Book your Table
Book a coveted table at Black Sheep on Boundary. Locals and tourists alike rave about the food and the atmosphere at this unique restaurant at the corner of Boundary and Harrington. It’s a tidy 900 square feet of space with a wood burning oven and a small dining room.They write a menu of ten items or less and run it for two weeks before starting over. According to the owner, “Blacksheep is a restaurant where you can relax and be yourself, to eat the food the way it’s plated, and to celebrate with those around you.” The attention to detail and flavor probably explains their exclusively 5-star Yelp rating and reviews. But reservations are limited and fill quickly, so we highly recommend booking well in advance.
Reservations can be made online at blacksheep.resos.com
Step Two: Get out on the Water
Book a Beaufort Dolphin & History Boat Cruise with Coastal Expeditions. Beaufort was meant to be seen by water! Departing from the downtown Beaufort marina at the Waterfront Park, this fun escape is the perfect introduction to Beaufort’s incredible history and abundant wildlife. As you cruise along the waterfront, the captain will tell stories about local history, and you are likely to see playful bottlenose dolphins, nesting bald eagles, and ospreys on the hunt.
Tours depart from the downtown marina at Beaufort’s Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park, just a few minutes from the Cuthbert House Inn! Your trip will last approximately two hours. Take a look at the trip and schedules page here for more details.
Step Three: Explore Downtown in Style
Tour Historic Downtown with Sea Island Carriage Company and experience Beaufort‘s rich history and unique charm on a 50-55 minute, fully narrated, horse drawn carriage tour.
