Historic Beaufort, North Carolina
Beaufort, North Carolina possesses an old-world, southern charm, steeped in maritime history and the adventure brought by its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean.
Beaufort is a seaport town, and also the county seat, located in Carteret County, North Carolina. It is the third-oldest town in North Carolina.
Boats dot the waterfront, from private yachts and massive sailboats to trawlers bringing locally owned restaurants “fresh from the docks” sea fare. Cozy inns line the harbor, inspiring Nicholas Sparks to set several of his novels in Beaufort, including “A Walk to Remember” and “The Choice.”
