Seeing these houses was just mind blowing...they were from time long lost and they were just beautiful!! There was only two main streets to view the homes but it was picture perfect for every house we saw. Peak season would be crazy to visit so we enjoyed the quietness of the streets. I would highly recommend that when there take time to view the sights

There is a walking tour of Beaufort and a van tour of the lower island area.
Our guide was Evelene Stevenson, the owner. We took the van tour and Evelene told us fascinating stories of the history of the area. She also sings as she tells stories. It is very interesting to hear about the plantations and the slaves that worked them and how the Civil War changed all that.Eveline is a most fascinating and interesting person. She is located on Bay Street in Beaufort. 843-525-0459.
