Beaufort

 

Many yachts and sailboats moor in our Town public docks and you are welcome to walk the waterfront, enjoy the salt air and look across Taylors Creek for the wild ponies and horses that make their home on Carrot Island. The Town docks also have a courtesy car that is available for supply runs. You can take Cape Lookout and Shackleford Banks excursions from our waterfront, kayak down Taylors Creek, or take a water taxi across Taylors Creek to swim and picnic on Carrot Island. You can also shop in specialty shops or eat in our great restaurants. You will then see why Look Magazine has designated Beaufort as the top undiscovered beach resort community. For more information about Beaufort and it’s surrounding areas please visit our webpage, call us at 252-728-2503 or send an email to c.burgess@beaufortnc.org.

Where The Pirates Roamed
Founded in 1709 and North Carolina’s 3rd oldest town, there is much to see and appreciate. There are many beautiful restored homes that pre-date the Civil War, and the water vista and tree lined streets are most picturesque. We are home to the North Carolina Maritime Museum and its Queen Anne Revenge artifacts from Blackbeard’s ship which sunk off the Beaufort Inlet. In fact, Beaufort in its early history was captured by pirates.

 

It’s a Dining Paradise
Hop off your boat and let you feet lead you to an amazing selection of quality restaurants and cafes just a stones throw from the docks. Any time of the day you’ll find something that pleases the palate and the eyes. Try out the delicious local seafood, enjoy the best grain-fed beef or if you prefer pizza and pasta, pub-grub or just savor a refreshing cup of coffee, the choices are a plenty. Dine inside or out and enjoy gorgeous views of the water and historical Beaufort. With so many great dining experiences, you may decide to stay an extra day, or two.
