Enjoy the vacation lifestyle EVERY day!

Here’s a tale you may have heard before: A family comes to Beaufort, SC, on vacation, falls hopelessly in love with the area, and decides they want to live here forever. If we didn’t know better, we’d swear our lovely corner of the South was putting a spell on folks who come to visit. There’s a reason that Beaufort was named the “Happiest Seaside Town in the USA”, as well as the “#1 Retirement Town in the U.S.”!
