Would you believe me if I said that this was my first time visiting Beaufort, S.C? After my trip I can definitely say it won’t be my last. The city reminds me so much of my hometown Charleston, except it’s not flooded with tourists. Picture Charleston circa 1990 or the early 2000’s. The beautiful part of Beaufort that I was gushing over was the Black/ Gullah culture and History. From the Penn Station, to the walking tour. I learned so much in such a short period of time. Check out my 5 favorite things from my trip to Beaufort, S.C!

The City Loft Hotel was such an amazing hotel. So many things about this hotel made me adore my stay so much more. My check-in was super smooth, I loved the design of the hotel, super modern and I loved that it had a balcony. My view faced the very busy street so I was able to see Beaufort in motion. My room was spacious yet cozy, a comfortable king size bed greeted me along with a bottle of wine!  

I am a sucker for an amazing bathroom and that is exactly what I got at the City Loft Hotel. The bathroom had an amazing soaking tub and I definitely took full advantage of the soaking part. I couldn’t remember the last time I had a chance to take a relaxing bath with a television positioned perfectly. The shower was amazing, at first I was nervous of the rainshower, shower due to me being natural, but my complimentary shower cap washed away my fears and my hair was perfect post shower.

The walking tour was my first walking tour that I’ve ever participated in. Being from Charleston and having multiple tours past me on a daily basis I’ve never been moved to take my own tour. That is until I got to Beaufort, S.C. I’m not sure if it was because it was my first tour but it was definitely the best tour hands down. I learned so much, especially about the Gullah people in Beaufort that built the entire town, harvested the rice and cotton plantations and visiting the home of Robert Smalls.

What’s a trip without delicious food? Dinner was provided by Hearth Wood Fire Pizza. The most delicious italian food I’ve ever had. Being that I’m not a huge fan or diary, more like dairy isn’t a fan for me. I choose to dine on a fire wood baked pizza with pepperoni and pineapples. The serving was perfect and it was enough to take for a late night snack, which is everyone’s guilty pleasure. 

My last activity in Beaufort was the Dolphin tour! Before I got to Russ Point landing I drove through St. Helena and other small islands. I had no idea how close each of the islands were. The dolphin tour was amazing, seeing dolphins that close and personal along with our knowledgeable tour guide made the tour that much more enjoyable.

My overall trip to Beaufort, S.C was a 10/10. I enjoyed everything about my trip. The town is beautiful, my hotel was amazing along with the staff. The staff brought fresh baked chocolate chip cookies to my room, what’s not to love? The walking tour was educational and the dolphin tour was definitely an adventure. I definitely plan to go back to Beaufort , S.C for another staycation.
