    I agree with this article’s assessment of the waterfront area in Beaufort. As a past vacationer, I have to say the Front St area of this community is full of quaint shops, restaurants, coastal themed art and exhibits. On the 2 days we were in the area we got to see many of the horses on the island that sits just across the water and enjoy the sailboats out on the water.

    There is great opportunities for live music and waterfront dining as well. But for us the old homes were the best. We will definitely be back to visit!
