With amazing summer like temperatures, this weekend was perfect for a little side trip to the beautiful antebellum town of Beaufort.
One of the first Confederate towns captured by the Union Army at the commencement of the Civil War this remarkable town was saved from the destruction that would befall the rest of the southern cities later in the war.
A town now standing as if time has stood still, Beaufort offers a look back into the picturesque life of the old south.
Beaufort has offered literary inspiration, providing settings for many of the works of author & native son Pat Conroy.
This beautiful site has also been the location of a number of Hollywood films including The Big Chill, The Prince of Tides, The Great Santini, & Forrest Gump to name a few.
Filled with so much history & beauty Beaufort is a wonderful place to visit on a warm lazy day.
With the majestic old live oaks dripping with Spanish moss to the beautifully preserved historic homes, Beaufort is a photographers paradise.
I hope you have enjoyed this little tour of Beaufort South Carolina.
