Beaufort is about as classic small-town South as it gets. Not that you needed any other reason to consider moving to an apartment in Beaufort, SC. But this beautiful coastal town has recently received another distinction: "Top 20 Fishing Towns in America" by Field & Stream Magazine
There's always some sort of festival taking place, and there's also real local culture that has flourished in connection to the ocean, rivers, and marshes for generations.
A fisherman's and boater's paradise, Beaufort and the surrounding islands maintain easy access to the beaches and waterways. As a fisherman, you couldn't expect to cover all the flats and inshore options for redfish, seatrout, and even tarpon at certain times of the year, in one lifetime.
Bluefish, spotted sea trout, Spanish mackerel, black sea bass, southern flounder and plenty more populate area waters. No boat? No problem. Rent a Kayak, head out into the Atlantic Ocean for deep water fishing or do some in-shore fishing. Aside from the fishing, there's golf, boating, birding, and plenty of historic diversions.
