Get in

By air

The closest airport to Beaufort is the Hilton Head Airport (IATA: HHH), which is 14.3 miles south of Beaufort (keep in mind you can't go direct). However, the service is sparse. The Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport (IATA: SAV) is 37.5 miles southwest of Beaufort. It has commercial service to all of the major airline hubs. Charleston International Airport (IATA: CHS) is 49 miles northeast of Beaufort. It has more commercial service than Savannah and Hilton Head, but keep in mind how far it is.

By road

Interstate 95 passes right north of Beaufort. Beaufort can easily be accessed via the exits for U.S. Route 278 and U.S. Route 17 on I-95.

By train

The Yemassee Amtrak station is served twice a day-once by the nighttime Silver Meteor, which goes down to Miami and up to New York City, and once by the daytime Palmetto, which goes on the same basic route as the Silver Meteor, except it ends at Savannah.

Get around


Historic Beaufort Foundation (HBF) has worked hard to preserve the fabulous architecture you will see, and offers lectures and events throughout the year.
