Coastal South Carolina, or the Low Country, is a lovely part of the Southeastern United States. For years, when we lived up North, we longed to explore this entire area. And now we live just a few hours away!

The Spanish Moss is alive and well:

One of our very favorite places is Beaufort, South Carolina.
Just to get you in the mood of this place….here is a short video I took early one morning.
Be sure to turn up the volume to hear the birds!

 

We stay at
City Loft Hotel
which is right in town and perfect for exploring (they have bikes) and close to so many good restaurants and shopping!

 

So many flowers at this time of year:

 

There is nothing quite like life at the beach, right? We spent a day at each of these:

Hunting Island State Park
and
Edisto Island 

Beaufort SC Beach

TRAVEL TO BEAUFORT, SOUTH CAROLINA

After Charleston we were on our way to Beaufort, South Carolina. This town was new to us and one we had wanted to visit for a long time…and, thanks to several friends, we had some excellent recommendations!

Where did we stay?

The City Loft Hotel

This is one cool, retro-remodeled motel now hotel in the very heart of Beaufort. No need for a car after checking in here.

All the rooms (except for two suites) are the same. Comfortable king bed.The storage was exceptional: lots of drawers (even under the bed) and surface area. The bathroom was huge and again lots of surface area which is SO rare in any hotel bathroom. And there were real GLASS glasses in bathroom and bar area in the room. Two, count ‘em two, fluffy bathmats! Enormous shower, again with lots of surface area for all the bottles. And on and on. I highly recommend this place.

The azaleas all over were just spectacular. White, pink, red, magenta…they were in full bloom! In both Charleston and Beaufort, these shrubs are really magical.
