South Carolina Lowcountry Town Named Among The Nation’s Most Beautiful Places
What’s the most beautiful place you’ve ever visited? For me that’s a hard decision. I’d probably go with Turks & Caicos as the color of that water was just breathtakingly unbelievable. In the US it’s harder to narrow down a choice. I absolutely love cities full of southern charm like Savannah and Charleston. While I’m more a beach than a mountain person I’ve been lucky enough to visit some incredibly gorgeous mountain town across the country as well. The red rocks in Sedona Arizona are stand outs as well. Conde Nast Traveler recently included a South Carolina town on their list of the nation’s 28 most beautiful places.
Think it was Charleston? It’s a good guess and a city that is almost always included on lists like these. And for good reason. But not this time! It is Beaufort South Carolina! I’ve heard a lot of wonderful things about this Lowcountry South Carolina town, but its somewhere I haven’t had a chance to visit yet. It certainly sounds like a place I would adore though!
Beaufort is located on Port Royal Island. The second oldest town in South Carolina is known for it’s incredible Antebellum mansions and architecture. Visitors love the live oaks covered in Spanish moss that line the Beaufort Historic District. Conde Nast Traveler speaks highly of the dining options. Their recommendations? “Wasabi deviled eggs at Old Bull Tavern, shrimp n’ grits at Saltus River Grill, and lamb meatloaf at Breakwater Restaurant & Bar.”
So what company is Beaufort in for the most beautiful places? Some of my favorites that made the list include Carmel-by-the-sea in California, Sedona, and St. Augustine, FL. The full list (which you can view here) includes cities in Alaska, Hawaii, Massachusetts, South Dakota, Arkansas, and more. Now to figure out how to visit them all!
