If you want to visit a beautiful historic city that is not too crowded but has all the romantic live oaks with the hanging moss and horse drawn carriage rides around the city, you need to visit Beaufort. Lots of history in this small city by the Atlantic Ocean. This city lies between Charleston and Savannah. We took in all the sites when visiting. We took the carriage ride around Beaufort and had a very informative guide. We stayed and ate dinner as well as visited the hauntingly old cemetery. Lots of history in this city, great food, we recommend a visit.

Visit at dusk or take the Ghost tour at night, which walks by the outside of the burial grounds. The grounds close at 5:00pm . This is a burial ground dating back well before the French and Indian war. Interesting headstones and human interest stories, tragedies and heartbreak.
Tip 1: stop by the Beaufort visitor center and pick up the burial ground guide.
Tip 2: bring bug spray in the warmer months.

Awesome cemetery! Visit at dusk and the shadows and sky are amazingly creepy to add to the atmosphere. It was interesting walking around and looking at all of the graves.
