Shopping in Beaufort

Select Local Merchants

Beaufort, a historic low-country seaport, is so charming that films such as Forrest Gump and The Prince of Tides shot scenes here. The quaint downtown area encompasses a smattering of boutiques, restaurants, and galleries all within walking distance of the inn. Seventeen miles north, at the end of a long country road, lie the crumbling, tabby-colored ruins of the prerevolutionary Old Sheldon Church. Built in the late 1740s, the church was torched by the British army in 1779, rebuilt in 1826, and torched again by Sherman's troops during his march to the sea in 1865. Today, visitors rest in the shadow of oaks draped in spanish moss and pause to reflect in front of the graves. Hunting Island State Park, a semibarrier island, runs parallel to the Atlantic Ocean, with a 5-mile stretch of beach and thousands of acres of marsh and tidal creeks abounding with wildlife. At the top of the park's 133-foot black-and-white lighthouse, visitors look out on panoramic views of the ocean and aerial views of sea-turtle flash mobs.

Sportsman's Shop T&T Sports, which has been in service for more than 60 years, preps athletes for myriad playing fields with equipment and apparel from brands such as Adidas, Easton, New Balance, and Nike. Players can wiggle into the flexible fibers of Under Armour duds such as women's comp shorts ($24.99) or the Tech T ($19.99), which affords drying protection against moisture buildups and sneezy fire hydrants. For Canton-bound flankers and soft-handed tire targets, rubber-covered Wilson footballs ($18.99) provide a more pliable catching surface, and Baden basketballs ($27.99) supply hoopsters with bouncy adaptability for indoor or outdoor play. Protect hand branches from a baseball bat's reverberating sting by sliding finger-first into a pair of Easton batting gloves ($12.99). Use the mesh links of a volleyball net ($30.29) to separate spiked shots or finally achieve checkered tan lines.

Featuring dishes created by Claude, a Normandy-born, European-trained chef, Claude & Uli's Bistro merges Lowcountry fare with French-inspired plates to create an eclectic array of dinnertime options. The menu intrigues tongue buds with soupy starters, such as onion soup with swiss cheese ($5.50) and Lowcountry she-crab soup ($5.50), and the main courses overload taste receptors with choices of French steak and frites ($19.95) or the Austrian-style veal schnitzel ($19.95), featuring crispy, breaded veal in ravishing cutlet form. Seafood supporters can select the red snapper with a hint of parmesan cheese ($23.50) or the cognac-infused lobster and seafood pot pie ($24.95), in which puff pastry swaddles shellfish like newborn chicks in an incubator.
