Beaufort South Carolina is located in the heart of the “Lowcountry” between Charleston, SC and Savannah, Georgia. Southern Living magazine has named it the #1 small town in America, five years in a row, Field and Stream magazine has named it one of the top 20 places to fish in America, and Hunting Island State Park was named as one of the top ten beaches in the country. Beaufort has just been awarded the title of “Happiest Seaside Town in America! Beaufort, SC is 3 hours south of Charlotte NC, 4 hours west of Atlanta Georgia, and 3 hours north of Jacksonville Florida, and we have been discovered!
The first and foremost reason to choose Beaufort as home is the endless ever-changing natural beauty of the multiple sea islands with their majestic Spanish Moss draped century old Live Oak Trees separated by the winding rivers and marshes feeding the sounds to the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. Beaufort is rich in history being the second oldest town in South Carolina just celebrating its 300th birthday and is home to the first permanent settlement in the New World. Antebellum homes and historic churches reminds us of days gone by as we stroll the once cobblestone roads overlooking the bay. Many people have made Beaufort their home, some for a lifetime and others just passing through. The population of Beaufort is comprised of one third multi-generation “Beaufortonians” refusing to uproot and leave their hometown; one third Military families supporting The Marine Corps Air Station, Parris Island Recruit Depot, and the United States Naval Hospital, many returning after retirement to live; and one third Retirees form the Northeast and other regions tired of the snow and colder climates, and even Florida residents tired of the tourist atmosphere of the peninsula.
The only reasons not to choose Beaufort are love of snow and cold weather, busy city life with traffic jams and night life, and no appreciation for natural beauty.
The real question is “Why not Beaufort?”
Port Royal is a truly unique part of the Lowcountry of South Carolina, adjacent to Historic Beaufort on Port Royal Island. Offering the small town feel of days gone by, the exciting waterfront development planned, and the natural beauty of the peninsula location bounded by the Beaufort River and Battery Creek joining to form the Port Royal Sound make the Town of Port Royal a special place to live for those fortunate to call it home. The Old Village of Port Royal, with its numbered streets intersecting avenues named after European cities, was developed hundreds of years ago as settlers first came to the New World.
Today the southern small town charm remains in this walking community centered around the 100 year old Port Royal Elementary School and Live Oak Park with natural features of the Sands Beach and Boardwalk looking out to the Atlantic Ocean across port Royal Sound and the Cypress Wildlife Preserve that's home to numerous white Egrets roosting the trees. The local YMCA offers sports and swimming activities for those young and old easily reached on foot. Street festivals bring the community together with the Spring Soft Shell Crab Festival and the Fall Oktoberfest on Paris Avenue, as well as the Fall and Spring street music series of afternoon entertainment by various artist. The local Farmers Market is attended by residents from all around and is ongoing throughout the year every Saturday. Enjoy fresh seafood at famous Dockside Restaurant at the end of 11th Street watching the sun set over the Shrimp Boat docks of Battery Creek. Dine and shop at local restaurants and stores that make this community special.
Port Royal eagerly anticipates the new waterfront development along Battery Creek replacing the old shipping port that boast the deepest natural port on the East Coast. Keeping public access to the riverfront will make this development an enormous asset to all the residents as commercial and residential features are built along the waterfront. Now is the time to make Port Royal home as it emerges to be one of the most desirable locations in Beaufort County and Coastal South Carolina. Huge century old Spanish Moss draped Lived Oak trees grace the streets of the town in numbers beyond compare to any other area. Make Port Royal home and step back into history, enjoy the natural beauty, and become part of the evolution of the most spectacular waterfront newest old town in America.
Don't miss out on the paradise of Port Royal.
