An Afternoon in Beaufort

This weekend, Mike and I visited Hilton Head Island to see my in-laws who were vacationing there, and on the way back, we decided to stop in Beaufort for the afternoon.  Right in the middle of Hilton Head and Charleston, this adorable little city is located just far enough off the beaten path to have its own identity.  
We started our day at Waterfront Park, right on the river.  The swings were so adorable, and it was the perfect place for a walk. 
After the park, we stepped into Scout Southern Market on Bay Street to cool down.  They're famous for their sweet tea floats (iced tea with lemon sorbet), and it was so refreshing!  I seriously wanted to bring everything home in this sweet little store. 
After we left Scout, we walked all up and down Bay Street.  The art galleries in Beaufort are fantastic, and I loved all the shopping. 
Our last stop of the day was for a drink back on Waterfront Park.  Unlike Charleston, I love how much riverfront dining there is, and I even met the sweetest little cat outside.  How adorable is Chester?!
We can't wait to go back to Beaufort to explore even more.  Here are five more things to do in Beaufort, SC that we will definitely be adding to our future travel plans:
- Climb Hunting Island Lighthouse
- Stroll through Point neighborhood
- Indulge at The Chocolate Tree
- Visit the Old Sheldon Church Ruins
- Kayak or paddle board through Beaufort waterways

It looks adorable! We've never been, but I got a little excited when I saw your title because we visited Beaufort, NC! Either way - this seems like the cutest little town that doesn't have the crazy draw that Charleston and HHI do. Adding it to our must visit list now :)

I want to go back to Charleston while we're in Augusta, and Beaufort is definitely on my list to visit. Another blogger I know lived there, and it is such a cute town.
