Hilton Head Island Day Trips: Beaufort
Located less than an hour from Hilton Head Island, Beaufort is a hidden gem. With a small, charming waterfront area, Main Street Beaufort is home to many quaint shops, restaurants, and art galleries. A paradise for both fishing and shrimping alike, Beaufort is equally well-known for its antebellum homes - many of which have been featured in movies, including: The Big Chill and The Great Santini. There's plenty to see and do in this well-hidden Lowcountry area.
To get the most out of your vacation, we highly recommend a short day-trip to beautiful downtown Beaufort on your next visit to Hilton Head Island.
