Beaufort, South Carolina, is a whole other story. There, they pronounce the city’s name Bew-fert, and there’s a downtown district where antebellum mansions still stand. The history here is different but equally fascinating. The Cuthbert House Inn, for instance, once was a plantation that a Union Army general took as his own during the Civil War. Some soldiers carved their names into a fireplace mantle that’s still visible today. Safe Harbor Beaufort has slips for transient yachts up to 150 feet length overall and is adjacent to the historic district for easy walking access to all the main sights.
