BeaufortSC_lighthouseIf you are searching for the slow southern lifestyle, look no further than Beaufort. Horse-drawn buggies depart from the marina on Bay Street and travel through The Point, a dozen blocks of historic residences, and beautiful downtown Beaufort. Whether you opt for a carriage ride or not, take a stroll through the District, along Bay and Carteret Streets, wandering randomly into whatever small stores catch your fancy, then watch the sun go down from Waterfront Park or get out on the water on a canopied pontoon.

New Street is the site of the First African Baptist Church. It continues to be used today and is a tourist attraction that many come to see in Beaufort County, SC. Don’t forget to check out the Town of Beaufort Museum and Arsenal. It contains Colonial spinning wheels, Civil War and Native American artifacts and even some large cannons that were once used during the wars. Unemployment is below the national average, and the cost of living index is 87.9 versus 100 for the U.S. average.

Green Initiatives & Energy

BeaufortSC_coupleA few years ago, Technical College of the Low Country (TCL) began a significant alternative energy program. Today, it is demonstrating the possibilities of tidal energy after installing an electrical generator in the Beaufort River. The river’s tidal swell, estimated at about eight feet, makes it an excellent location to study and harness the physical energy generated by the changing tides.
