Great Place To Call Home - 9/1/2017
My husband and I moved here a year and a half ago. We have already made more friends here, than we had in other places we have lived. Most of our neighbors are from somewhere else, as our neighborhood consists of many new homes. We don't personally know anyone who has been the victim of any crime here, nor have we. I feel very safe in our neighborhood and when I am downtown, or elsewhere. I would give it five stars, with the cost of groceries was not so high! Don't judge our area by the reviews. Crime here is limited to certain areas and often personal. No place is Read More

Horrible for Young People - 4/21/2016
This place is exactly what you'd expect for a small town. Great for old people who like a slow lifestyle of fishing and pig pickings. Horrible for young people -- teenagers or young adults. There's nothing here for them. No shopping (just a little strip mall with Walmart, TJ Maxx and Belk), no concerts, no nothing. No ethnic diversity whatsoever, the population is very "monochrome" (black and white). There is one tiny movie theater showing mainstream movies if you're into that. Nightlife? Ha.

You want to go to any stores like H&M or Forever21 or Anthropologie or whatever? Go get in your car and drive an hour and a half to Charleston. Want to attend a concert? Get in your car again. Hell, we don't even have a Target here. Job market is great if you want to work in the fast food industry. If you're young, you get the hell out as soon as you can to escape the crushing Read More

Woner why Beaufort has lost 8% of it population? C - 9/6/2014
In 1992 when we first came ot Beaufort we oculd walk the streets day and night and even late into th enight and we always felt safe.
Now? We wouldn't feel safe if General Patton was surrounding us.
Local authorities and politcos have left the crime get out of hand because, in our opinion, they just want to try "dialogue" and be those good old namby pambyes so as not to offend anyone.
And it is easier to put up someone going 2 MPH over the speed limit than to go after a gang group at might or a sex offender or a druggie or a wife beater or a child molestor.
Plus they have all the out of town tourist money to take in their little speed traps and parking violations.
To hell with the locals, just play it safe for themselves.
A lot of movies use to be filmed in and around Beaufort "Forrest Gump" "The Great Santini" etc.
Now we're not sure when the last major film gorup came here.

Small Town Charm - 6/8/2014
Beaufort is a small town with lots of charm, history, and a good jumping off point to larger cities to fulfill ones need for the arts and culture (Charleston to the North and Savannah to the Read More

A Small Paradise - 2/21/2011
After living in some of the largest cities in the world, Beaufort was a much needed change of pace. The slow southern life style is perfect for anyone wishing to build a family, enjoy the outdoors, and become a part of a real community.

The waterways are breath taking. The downtown waterfront park is like the heart of the small town. With swings draped in ivy, cafes with awesome views, a children's play area, and plenty of amazing art galleries; unless it is shopping malls and traffic you crave, Beaufort is for you.

Beaufort can't be judged by a drive by, unless you see it from the water, you really haven't seen Read More

Beaufort..... - 7/12/2010
I live here in Beaufort, I actually grew up here, but have lived in a few different places. The main problem with Beaufort are the people who run this town. Our schools are some of the worst in the nation, and nothing is being done about it. We have a huge lack of education, low paying jobs, and A very high cost of living. The rest of my family actually lives in Hawaii, and the cost of living here is cheaper, but not by a whole lot. The difference is, what you would get paid $18.00 an hour for there you make min. wage here. Health care, is not so good here as well.
Beaufort is a nice little place to live though. A beautiful enviroment, great history, rivers, beaches,fishing, and wild life. Beaufort could be a wonderful place to live, if the people here demanded some changes.
We have quite a few VERY wealthy people that call Beaufort there home. This still does not seem to break this trend of the "I don't give a rat's !*s about anything" attitude from our local officials. Read More

Life in the Lowcountry - 6/14/2010
The cost of living is way over what it should be. A house near a swamp can cost over $300,000 just for the "Water front view". Besides realty, Beaufort is pretty awesome as far as beaches and nature at its finest. Beaufort itself doesnt have much for entertainment, but is centralized to many places if you dont mind driving. Savannah, Ga and Charleston, SC is only 45 minutes away. You can make a weekend trip to Jacksonville, Fl (5 hours) or Myrtle Beach, SC (4 hours). Its a vacation area. Its small and I have never even heard of it until I recieved orders to Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort. I was raised in a big city (Houston, Tx) and this is a nice step away from the hussle and bussle that comes with the big city lifestyle. Overall, Beaufort is in my top 6 (out of 14) of the places that I have been Read More

Living in Beaufort - 10/17/2009
First off- I am living in Beaufort due to my husband in the Military and we are both originally from California.
When we first moved out here we were in SHOCK!!! There are no metropolitan things & really not much to do in this little city. All of the people we met told us that the town sucks and there is nothing to do anywhere within 30 miles. However, knowing that we have to live here for the next 2-3 years we've decided to look for things to do locally & found some decent stuff. Downtown Beaufort & Ladys Island are nice. Unfortunately, there are NOT many options for shopping in this city, you'll have to travel almost 40 minutes away to get to the nearest Target :( & if you are coming from the West Coast, they have never heard of Del Taco here, haha.

I have read many of the city reviews and yes there are many downsides of coming to Beaufort- the drivers are indeed crazy ( I have almost been run off the road twice from someone switching lanes) & there are many Read More
