Where to Retire magazine, a publication aimed at helping people with retirement decisions, named Beaufort SC one of its top eight "cost-cutting, low-tax towns" in America in a recent issue. Where to Retire editor, Mary Lu Abbott, wrote that Beaufort has "ample access to water for boating, crabbing and other activities, as well as a strong art scene and volunteering opportunities."
We are proud of our retiree population which comes from all over the US and abroad. As Mary Lu wrote in the article, we offer all the above in addition to a nice quality of life. Housing choices abound with something for everyone, whether that be golf, fishing, or boating. Beaufort is a quaint southern town, rich in history, enveloped in a gentle lifestyle that enjoys our environment. Visit for a weekend and see for yourself.
