"BOW-Fort" Top 5 Page for this destination Beaufort Favorite Tip by grandmaR

Beaufort General: 3 reviews and 3 photos

  Historic House on Front Street

Favorite thing: My tip is that the town's name is pronounced BO fort (like a hair bow or a girls beau). The one in South Carolina is pronounced Beuw as in beautiful.

So in North Carolina, you pull back a BOW to shoot an arrow at the Fort, and in South Carolina it is BEAUTIFUL Beaufort.

Fondest memory: Looking at the old homes in the historic district.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
