Our State magazine recently did an article about the top 17 coastal towns and beaches in North Carolina and we’re proud that Beaufort is on that list! We’re not surprised, though, as we know how great a place Beaufort is, with its own personal charm and history, as well as its convenient location to other top coastal towns and beaches. What better reason to purchase one of the homes in Beaufort NC, particularly one of the Beau Coast homes, than to have access to this idyllic slice of coastal life.

Right here in Beaufort, you can take one of the Hungry Town Tours, bicycling and walking tours organized by owners Betsy and David Cartier. These tours combine food, history, great scenery, and plenty of fun as you explore Beaufort and learn interesting facts, like the numerous white picket fences that you’ll see throughout town are the result of an early law that required owners to keep their pigs in their yards!

After all that cycling and walking, despite the food along the way, you’re likely to want a nice dinner out and that’s always easy to find in Beaufort, which is known as a dining destination. One of the perennial favorites is the Beaufort Grocery Company. The building was originally the Owen’s Grocery Store, but after only a few months of living in Beaufort, Charles and Wendy Park decided to buy the building and turn it into an excellent restaurant that combines Charles’ culinary training, which turns out spectacular dishes using local fresh ingredients, and Wendy’s amazing pastry skills, to create a restaurant that has been a favorite since 1991. Come for the amazing food, stay for the laid-back coastal vibe of the restaurant.

Those are just a few of the many highlights of life in Beaufort. There’s also the benefit of living within easy reach of numerous other top-rated coastal towns and beaches along the Crystal Coast, North Carolina’s southern outer banks. Atlantic Beach offers surf, sand, fun, and fantastic dining. Considered one of the best beaches in the state, you can relax and enjoy the sun and surf, but you can also go fishing off the pier or try a variety of watersports and activities. There’s also plenty of great shopping and dining to round out a day trip to the area. Emerald Isle is another similar favorite nearby.

These are just a few of the top-rated beaches and coastal towns to be found along North Carolina’s coast. Of course, with Beaufort coming out on top, we think it’s a great place to visit and an even better place to live.
