Beaufort, South Carolina: Historic Seaport Flush with Coastal Beauty
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.
