And this town has thin skin. The only attraction to see is a tiny little downtown (Bay street) about five blocks long. That's where all the local shops are and just a few that are cutesy quaint and way overpriced. It does have a little water front park on the Beaufort River (inter coastal water way). The tide rises and falls eight feet twice a day exposing smelly "pluth mud". Beaufort is not even on the coast. It is 30 miles from the coast and there you will find only one beach that is a state park. The people are not at all friendly unless you are spending money. We have been looking for investment property and so we asked locals how they felt about the local government. The majority consensus seems to be that it is closed minded, slow, and a good-ole boys club. There is apparently a lot of crime as well and especially homicide farther out toward the islands of St.Helena and Fripp. It seems that there really are not any "local" people, just transient military (and lot's of it) and retirees looking for homes in gated communities. Which means there is no sense of community in the town. So there is a vast divide between those that have and the have-nots. We have concluded that Beaufort is a small microcosm example of a socially dysfunctional town brought about by the real estate industry and retirement wealth seeking to escape the demise of their own communities is other parts of the country. We have found much friendlier parts of South Carolina and ones that are not at sea level.
