Beaufort, SC, is in the running to be named America’s “Happiest Seaside Town in 2013” by Coastal Living Magazine. Out of ten finalists, we know that Beaufort is indeed the happiest coastal town! Just think of our yearly celebrations: the Pelican Plunge, Water Festival, Shrimp Festival, Ghost Tours, and parades for every occasion- just to name a few.

Here’s a few comments from the Happy People of Beaufort on our Facebook page:

Debbie Henderson says: No traffic. Terrific restaurants. Great festivals, free concerts, and free plays! Excellent farmers’ markets. Beaches! Quaint shops. Small-town casual, but near big town bustle (Savannah, GA; Charleston, SC) whenever you get that masochistic urge for traffic jams.

Erica Monson says:  I love the scenes, the smells, and my fellow Beaufort Natives. It’s just home to me.

Lori Hart says:  I’m a tourist…but I love my friends in Beaufort ( Port Royal) and Nippys!
