How bad is the traffic in Beaufort and the surrounding islands around 4th of July? I live in MB and traffic here is bonkers. I want to try and get away from the craziness! We stopped by Hunting Island State Park yesterday and drove through Beaufort on our way home from Tybee island. Just from our brief visit, I decided it's somewhere I want to visit for a longer stay. I just wasn't sure the 4th of July would be a good option if I'm trying to escape the craziness!
