The history of the Civil War has played an impressive role in our city’s survival and legacy. Travel back in time by taking a guided history walk through our National Historic District or a short horse and buggy tour. Visit Penn Center with its Gullah cultural history museum dedicated to the preservation of the Sea Island story, or a trip up Route 21 to the ruins of the Old Sheldon Church, whose massive brick columns still stand after being burned by the British in 1779, and then again being destroyed during the war in 1865.

Don’t miss the Rhett Gallery where four generations of family artists bring the South Carolina Lowcountry to life.

Activities In and Around the Water

Beaufort is one of 200 islands on the Intracoastal Waterway. Our geographic location is at the mouth of the Port Royal Sound – the source of our high salty tides that reach far inland, picturesque marshes and beaches. A trip across the islands to Hunting Island State Park, is a great day of sand, surf and long walks on the South Carolina shoreline. Across the street at The Downtown Marina, Coastal Expeditions South will take you on a dolphin and history cruise or a sunset cruise that feature a wonderful view of Beaufort from the water.
