North Carolina’s third oldest town offers a variety of activities to residents of all ages. Home to the original pirate, Blackbeard, Beaufort provides a interesting combination of beach town fun and important history.
Recently, Beaufort was named by Southern Living magazine the South’s Best Small Town 2019, and our coastal town has quickly become one of the most popular vacation destinations for Inner Banks travelers and boating enthusiasts of all varieties, and for good reason. The small 2.7 mile town is a vacationer and maritime lover’s dream, with a hearty downtown scene lined with shops, galleries, and acclaimed restaurants, in addition to dozens of maritime supply stores.
Beaufort’s historic and altogether picturesque downtown is one of the most visited and most acclaimed town centers in the Inner Banks. Filled with a history that intermingles seamlessly with acclaimed shops and restaurants, this otherwise typical eastern North Carolina town has become a favorite among Inner Banks visitors.
