A Terrific Town on the Water

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Many baby boomers dream of retiring somewhere by the water. Money Magazine did an article on about the 6 Best Towns on the Water, and our town is one of them! Now is the time to rent an apartment in Beaufort, SC. And Beaufort won't sink your retirement budget.

When Hollywood movie scouts need the perfect southern setting, they come to Beaufort. Tucked among South Carolina's Sea Islands, this 300-year-old town with moss-covered oaks has been the backdrop for movies like Forrest Gump, Prince of Tides and The Big Chill .

But the town and its charm have not changed. It is still far enough off the beaten path that you have to go out of your way to find it. In fact, many people find Beaufort by boat. From the Beaufort River, also known as the Intercoastal Waterway, boaters can cruise to dozens of other islands, head out to the Atlantic or, more commonly, pull up on a sandbar and enjoy a private beach. On a Sunday at low tide, there might be 20 to 50 boats anchored at the sandbar near the city's waterfront park.

There are dozens of golf courses in Beaufort County, including those on Hilton Head 40 miles away.

For information about our beautiful apartment community, Ashton Pointe in Beaufort, contact us.
