A quick google search of “Spring Break destinations” will list the popular tropical beach destinations that tend to be overcrowded, and frankly, overrated. Beaufort, SC should be a top destination for your consideration as it’s a beacon for history, culture, ecology, and a captivating charm that is second to none.
For families with younger children, a Spring Break Vacation in Beaufort, SC is an ideal location, as you can still enjoy an amazing Beach (Hunting Island) while also exploring the second oldest city in South Carolina.
Some have argued that Beaufort, SC was actually the the first settlement in the United States (event before Jamestown), dating back to the 1500’s when the Spanish thought they landed in what is now Florida. If you’re interested in visiting museums to learn more about American history, The Beaufort Inn is a great place to stay, as we are within walking distance to the National Park Service’s Reconstruction Museum, the Beaufort History Museum and Arsenal, and many cottages on property contain their own histories.
If history is not your thing, adventure awaits on the water, which is all around you. You can kayak, paddleboard, reserve a charter fishing trip, take an eco-boat tour, or purchase tickets to visit St. Phillips Island.
