Stay with Choice Hotels in Beaufort, SC close to the following attractions:
Adjacent to historical downtown, Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park is considered Beaufort's crown jewel. You can take in the scenery on the walking paths, fish and catch a show at the open-air pavilion. If you time your visit at sunset, you will catch a spectacular sight as the sun disappears behind the water.
Located 20 minutes from downtown, Hunting Island State Park is sandwiched between the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean. It features five miles of pristine beaches on a secluded island. After walking along the beach, enjoy a respite sitting on the dock overlooking the water.
Hunting Island Lighthouse is the only lighthouse in South Carolina that allows visitors. Built in 1859, it was constructed to allow it to be taken apart, and was once moved due to beach erosion. If you dare to climb the 167 steps to top, you will be greeted with a breathtaking, panoramic view of the area.
Beaufort National Cemetery is a veteran's cemetery with roots in the Civil War. You will immediately notice the cemetery's unique design, with graves arranged in semi-circles and roadways that resemble spokes of a wheel. Today, 117 Confederate soldiers are buried there.
Experience the quiet splendor of St. Helena's Episcopal Church. Established in 1712 as an Anglican parish, it served as a hospital during the Civil War. The cemetery there houses a "who's who" of Beaufort's late and great historical figures.
Find time to walk, bike or take a carriage ride through The Point, a historical district with upscale antebellum homes. Nature lovers should take a drive to Port Royal to visit Cypress Wetlands, where you can find the best bird watching in the area and walk along the new boardwalk.
