A Southern belle and a vacationer's beau

Nestled in South Carolina's Lowcountry, Beaufort is a city on Port Royal Island surrounded by the many twisting branches of the Harbor River. This quaint little gem is known for the antebellum mansions in its downtown historic district, its adorable tree-lined streets, and its museums full of carefully preserved artifacts of American history. There are a million and one opportunities for outdoor fun on the beach or in the water, and vacationers flock to the area. Still, the local pride and friendly habits of Beaufort's permanent residents make the city feel homey.

Things to do

Beaufort pays homage to history, heritage, and Huguenots

South Carolina's Lowcountry has a complex and fascinating past, and a Beaufort vacation rental is a great place to kick off a journey back in time. The Beaufort History Museum is set in a 1798 arsenal that participated in the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. Today, the museum tells the story of Native American settlements, 16th-century Spanish colonists, Union occupation during the Civil War, and 20th-century phosphate mining. Antebellum architecture is on display at the John Mark Verdier House and Museum, which traces the life of the French Huguenot Verdier.

Activities

Beaufort is beautiful by water, land, or carriage

Your Beaufort vacation rental is situated among historic relics and a rich natural landscape, which means there's enough to keep visitors occupied for weeks. Watersports, boating, and fishing are popular pastimes, and if you're not the sporting type, you can still get on the water. Beaufort offers unique ways to learn about the area's colonial past and Civil War history _ enjoy a guided tour by boat, kayak, or horse-drawn carriage. Vacationers can also relax on a self-guided stroll through the historic district, where much of the city's antebellum architecture has been preserved.

Weather

Easy winters, hot summers, and perfect everything else

South Carolina boasts mild weather year-round, and no matter when you book your Beaufort vacation rental, you are likely to be pleased. Summer highs reach the 80s and low 90s, and winter temps rarely dip below the low 60s or upper 50s. If you like it hot, hot, hot, come in summer to enjoy outdoor activities and get your tan on. If you want to live like a local, try fall and spring, when year-round residents agree the cooler temps and ocean breezes are ideal.

Natural features

Enough watery resources for willows and wild horses

The natural beauty of South Carolina's coast is everywhere in Beaufort, even on the streets of the city center, where magnolia trees line the sidewalks and trail Spanish moss. Boat trips through the area's wetlands, tidal marshes, and open waters might take you past dolphins, nesting shorebirds, or wild horses stopping for a quick drink along the shore. Red maple, willow, and buttonbush wetlands are cut through with boardwalks and biking trails, and Hunting Island, with its popular beach and serene marshlands, is only a few miles away.
