    Horse Drawn Carriage

    There are several different carriage companies that will take you on a tour.

    Southernrose Buggy Tours
    1210 Newcastle St
    Beaufort, SC 29902
    (843) 524-2900

    Narrated tour of the Old Point neighborhood and the Historic District. Offering walking tours as well.

    Carolina Buggy Tours
    Phone: 843-525-1300
    Fax: 843-525-1000

    Beaufort, SC 29901

    50 minute guided tours of the Old Point neighborhood and the Historic District. Departs daily or call Visitor's Center for schedule.

    I have not taken one of these tours, but I understand that guides touch on area history, telling stories about the grand houses and their owners. Some offer gossipy accounts of celebrity visitors and movie stars.

    Beaufort is almost surrounded by water, so there are many different on the water options for getting to or seeing Beaufort. Although we've come to Beaufort by boat, we have not tried any of these options. Some ideas to consider are:

    From Hilton Head take 278 to 170 North. Follow SC 170 North across Chechessee River bridge and Broad River bridge. After the Broad River bridge, turn RIGHT on SC 802 East and follow to intersection where 802 and US 21 South merge. Turn RIGHT, still on 802, and cross high bridge and continue to light (Walgreen’s and Publix on opposite corners). Go straight through light continuing on SC 802 East (also called Sams Point Road) for 6.7 miles to the bridge that crosses Lucy Point Creek. Cross the bridge and ACE Basin Tours marina is immediately to the LEFT at the far end of the bridge

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's easiest to arrive by car as the drive between Savannah and Charleston is quite scenic and nice to be able to stop when you like.
    The historical district is very compact so walking is your best option.
