Beaufort Reviews

Just enough (businesses, restaurants, stores, schools, work) to have a comfortable way of life, but sometimes missing the variety of a city. Travel time to the next bigger city is 1+ hr.
Review Beaufort
Virtually no mentioning of violent crime in the area. Probably because of large military community, crime seems to be minimal.
Small town with plenty of unique restaurants and scenic waterfront views. Lately the inland portions have been steadily developing.
