We walked here from Bay Street and enjoyed seeing the homes, posing with the cannon. It's just a short walk from the shops. The homes and B&Bs are really fun to look at too. Nice historical area.
Don't know which to feel sorrier for .... the people who live on The Point, whose privacy is invaded by gawking tourists almost all year long, or the poor horses who are forced to haul a bunch of lazy tourists around in a carriage - when most of the tourists are so overweight that they could well benefit from a... 更多
Beautiful little downtown neighborhood with historic homes and graceful streets! We loved strolling through the area and catching the breathtaking views of the water and admiring the grandiose antebellum homes. A must visit in Beaufort!
The Inn we stayed at provided bicycles so we took advantage of the opportunity of biking through The Point. It was wonderful to leisurely look at the antebellum homes throughout the area but especially the ones backing up to the Waterway.

Drive the streets of this oldest section of Beaufort and get an idea of what the original town looked like. Better yet, wait for the Fall House and Garden Tour and delight yourself with views behind the stately doors for some beautiful homes. But there are local tours and they are very good. Go an enjoy.
If you have pets and you enjoy river views -- this is quite a place to spend some time walking around and close by are many restaurants with views of the river.
The Point is old Beaufort. It is the historic base of this community. Wandering the narrow residential streets via walking, car, or "buggy ride", takes you on a journey back to pre-Civil War, and in some cases, pre-American Revolution eras. This is truly an old South, Low Country town... like Charleston used to be.
We did as others have suggested. We took a carriage tour, and then returned to spend about 90 minutes walking past the homes in this historic district. You can get a list of significant homes from the Visitor’s Center.
