6. The Beaufort Waterfront - One of my favorite things to do is walk the Beaufort Waterfront. The great thing about the Beaufort Waterfront is you can walk depending upon where you are staying, come by car, or come by boat. There are a variety of shops, restaurants, and night life establisments with live local entertainment or maybe even someone visiting.
There are several festivals found on the Beaufort Waterfront depending upon the season, The Beaufort Music Festival, Pirate Invason, Art Festival and more (check the local calendars).

Walking and looking at the boats is so much fun. Hanging out on the docks talking to the transient travelers.
Another must see if you are in the area, just come check out the Crystal Coast.
