Area Information

Southern Living readers consistently rate Beaufort as one of the “Best Small Towns in the South” in the magazine’s annual survey, and the area also makes a regular appearance on lists of the “best places to retire.” Proud to be a bit off the beaten path, Beaufort is often described as a smaller version of its historic big city sisters, Savannah (40 miles to the south) and Charleston (70 miles north).

Beaufort’s year-round temperature averages about 65 degrees. Coastal residents and visitors alike adore the area’s temperate climate, because it allows outdoor recreation twelve months of the year. Visit the Beaufort Chamber of Commerce for more information.
