Visiting the Crystal Coast

Beaufort, NC - Part of North Carolina's Crystal Coast

is one of North Carolina's treasures!  As North Carolina's third oldest town, Beaufort is rich in history including pirates, boat-building, and fishing, Beaufort is teeming with activities for outdoor enthusiasts and tourists!  Additionally, while in Beaufort, you will enjoy top-notch restaurants, fascinating museums and historical tours, natural attractions, and coastal beauty.  Escape to Beaufort!

"Named by Travel + Leisure as “America’s Favorite Town” among other accolades, Beaufort brings even more to the table than meets the eye. Dock your boat at a downtown marina and walk from one charming boutique to the next. Take in some history at the Beaufort Historic Site and NC Maritime Museum or drop your kayak in Taylor’s Creek. Then, relish in it all with cocktails and award-winning seafood overlooking the water at sunset. It’s no wonder so many people call Beaufort their home away from home." (
