This residential park fronts the water and is a great place to bring a cup of coffee and visit with a friend. Adjacent to fine Antibellum style homes, most historic and registered, it isn't hard to imagine the Old South days.

We walked here from Bay Street and enjoyed seeing the homes, posing with the cannon. It's just a short walk from the shops. The homes and B&Bs are really fun to look at too. Nice historical area.

We arrived on Sunday and the carriage tours were not running. We were offered a walking/ driving tour self service. The point houses a collection of historic homes with family stories of the past. These homes and streets show days of growth and prosperity. The gardens and water views are as varied as a rainbow. Almost a mini Charleston/Savanna. Framed... More

Don't know which to feel sorrier for .... the people who live on The Point, whose privacy is invaded by gawking tourists almost all year long, or the poor horses who are forced to haul a bunch of lazy tourists around in a carriage - when most of the tourists are so overweight that they could well benefit from a...

Beautiful little downtown neighborhood with historic homes and graceful streets! We loved strolling through the area and catching the breathtaking views of the water and admiring the grandiose antebellum homes. A must visit in Beaufort!

The Inn we stayed at provided bicycles so we took advantage of the opportunity of biking through The Point. It was wonderful to leisurely look at the antebellum homes throughout the area but especially the ones backing up to the Waterway. The City of Beaufort has done an excellent job of reserving many of the roads that dead-end into the... More

The Point is Beaufort's historic residential district. Its tranquil live oak- lined streets have been the backdrop to a number of movies. Come in the spring for the tour of homes to satisfy your curiosity about what is inside those mansions or enjoy the ghost tours in the fall.

So many antebellum homes and attractions in Beaufort! The Point is a high light of Beaufort. And if you like what you see there you may want to take the Tree Walk which starts two blocks from Bay Street on Carteret. The walk is enhanced by the guide book for it which is available at The Armory tourist center. ENJOY... More
