I get asked that frequently. I can't put my finger on why so many folks choose to relocate or retire to Beaufort, I just know people want to be here. Beaufort is a target destination of folks from Maine to Tennessee and North Carolina to Connecticut.
Well, maybe I can put my finger on it. Besides being,pound for pound, one of the most historic towns in America, the weather is temperate, the waterways are endless, the beaches are nearby, and the people are just plain nice.
From a tax situation, most of those relocating to Beaufort will tell you their taxes went down when they arrived in town.
