PLAN YOUR TRIP

Beaufort, SC is a short drive to Brays Island Plantation and home to many restaurants and hotels. For those seeking accommodations in Beaufort, our recommendations include Rhett House Inn, Anchorage 1770, Beaufort Inn, City Loft Hotel, or Best Western Sea Island Inn. If you’re planning to join us over the weekend, we’ll be serving lunch a la carte each day, in addition to cocktail hours and dinner receptions – but there are plenty of delectable restaurants in Beaufort that we would suggest trying. If you’re looking for Southern fare try Saltus River Grill or Breakwater, but if BBQ is on your list you can’t miss Q on Bay. For traditional American dishes, check out Old Bull Tavern, Wren Bistro or Hearth for wood fired pizza. While on the water in Beaufort, sit down to either Dockside or Fishcamp on 11th Street to try some of the freshest seafood.
