Family-Friendly Attractions

If you’re looking for something a little more family-friendly, then there is a wide variety of areas to explore while visiting. We suggest booking a Beaufort Pirate Tour, which runs through the summer months, and offers you views of the waterfront that you can’t get any other way. There are also local museums and wile life excursions to indulge in! The kids may also enjoy visiting the local shops for the games and sweets that many of them have for sale!

Where to Eat

Beaufort has no shortage of amazing places to dine, but we have managed to narrow it down to a few of our favorites. The first on the list is Clawson’s, and locals will agree that you need to indulge here at least once during your visit. The food is phenomenal, the atmosphere is inviting, and the staff is knowledgeable in their menu items and local events or attractions to visit. The Front Street Grill is the next place, mainly due to their amazing views. Their food is also amazing and fairly priced, but the nighttime views of the water are so serene, and perfect for that date night. You can’t afford to miss out on this amazing dining experience.

Finally, we suggest City Kitchen as our third must-visit restaurant in Beauport, as the food is so unique and fresh, and the atmosphere is unlike any other. The restaurant itself is on the docks, and offers views of boat launches, and the harbor, and features many fresh catch items on their menu.
