Beaufort, NC is a small coastal town with lots of history and things to see and do. This area was originally known as “Fish Town” and has always been known for Blackbeard, the Pirate. There are many gorgeous homes in Beaufort and many that are over one hundred years old and have been restored to their original form, earning them a plaque with the year the home was built on it. The trip into Beaufort is pretty, no matter which direction you come in from. The scenery is lots of water, marshlands, and pretty homes all along the way. The homes in this area range in size from a beach bungalow to a huge, several story home to homes on stilts. Many of the homes are remodeled or restored homes and there are many new, up to date homes. Many of the homes have special features like a widow's walk on top or a rooftop deck or fenced-in yards. A white picket fence is referred to as a Beaufort fence and is very popular in this area. Homes can be very expensive if you try to live right on the water. The closer to the water you get the more expensive the homes and for the most part, the bigger the home. The schools in Beaufort are Beaufort Elementary School, Beaufort Middle School, and East Carteret High School. There is also a Tiller School. There are two grocery stores in Beaufort, many churches, gas stations, doctor offices, shopping, restaurants, and a post office. The hospital is a short drive across two high rise bridges to Morehead City. The beautiful waterfront also has shopping and waterfront dining along with bars and pubs and entertainment. There are lots of shops on the waterfront also. Beaufort has several parks and ball fields and plenty of places to walk or to go kayaking, boating or swimming. Another attraction that Beaufort is so well known for is the “Old Burying Ground” that is very interesting to walk through and read about. When walking on the boardwalk in Beaufort, you can see across the waterfront to Carrot Island, and watch the wild horses meandering around. There are also Ferry services to take you to the islands to see the horses up close. Beaufort has a beautiful view of the water, the wild horses, the Beaufort Inlet, and big shrimp boats and ships as they come into the port. The Beaufort Maritime Museum is also located on the waterfront and is a fun place to visit.
