This site will help you learn more about Beaufort and help you decide if retiring to this area on the southern coast South Carolina is right for you.



Beaufort (pronounced byew’furt) is in the heart of South Carolina’s low country, just inland of the year round resort of Hilton Head and halfway between the cosmopolitan cities of Charleston and Savannah. Baby boomers looking for an interesting place to retire are coming here because of its southern charm, relaxed atmosphere, as well as for its beauty and climate. Beaufort is located on an island; 300 of its acres have been designated as a National Historic Landmark. It is often confused with Beaufort, NC (pronounced Bo’furt), a charming town on the North Carolina coast. Many baby boomer retirees decide to retire in the historic town of Beaufort or its nearby neighbors – Bluffton and Port Royal. Others choose one of the many 55+ communities in the area. At the height of the real estate boom in 2006 here it seemed that bulldozers were going to turn every stand of palmetto into an active adult community. Active and 55+ communities of every stripe were completed, but the pace of development has slowed to a healthier level, and prices have fallen somewhat. Golf, tennis, and boating are the focus of most of these communities.
