Beaufort, South Carolina is a magical place. This city guide doesn’t have a ton of specific recommendations, but if you can get yourself to this area of the country – DO IT. Being from the Pacific Northwest, South Carolina is like another world. A few of my favorite snaps and recos below.

And the trip continues…
Beaufort, SC is a CHARMING place. It was recently rated America’s Happiest Seaside Town by Coastal Living Magazine – and it’s easy to see why! Similar to Savannah, we got a lot of recos from the Design Sponge city guide for Beaufort.
The cottage that was stayed in at Secession Golf Club was the cutest! I literally took pictures of all the interior details so I can remember to incorporate them into our house someday. Needless to say, we will definitely be back.
We started off with lunch at the Lowcountry Produce Market & Cafe. It was AMAZING. The decor of the cafe was spot on – I’m a sucker for subway tile and the color green. When I sat down to write this post, I went back to their website and saw that their homemade soups, just made Oprah Magazine’s favorite things list for Jan. 2015! I think I literally could’ve eaten here every day we were in Beaufort.
We finished up the day in Beaufort with a horse drawn carriage tour. All of the homes in the historic area are amazing and Beaufort was actually the filming ground for a lot of movies – most notably The Big Chill.

The other awesome place we ate in Beaufort was Wren – amazing burgers.
Our day trip to Hilton Head was definitely a highlight of the trip. The water was SO warm compared what we’re used to in the Pacific Northwest. It was amazing to just lie on the beach and read!
We spent our last day in SC with a day trip to Charleston. I was really excited about this trip, but it was so, freaking hot and humid that it was tough to really enjoy it. Oh well, guess that’s a good excuse to go back someday! A few highlights below…
Another carriage tour!
Cru Cafe – one of the best meals of the trip, and a delish Rose’! (Get the shrimp BLT)
Here’s to an amazing trip with even better friends!
