Reasons to Live in Beaufort, South Carolina

When talking to clients about living in Beaufort, I am always interested to learn the various reasons they have for moving to (or remaining in) Beaufort. During my years in the area I have probably heard hundreds of reasons, but in this article I’ve decided to narrow it down to the top ten reasons to people love to live in Beaufort:

1. “I love Activities on the Water!” With all the beaches, rivers and tidal creeks that lie in the Beaufort area, we often have to ask clients what kind of water activities they’re looking for. Beach-goers love Hunting Island State Park for it’s beautifully secluded beaches and picnic areas.  If you’re looking for seclusion, then maybe private beaches like Fripp Island or Harbor Island.  Boaters who love to cruise or fish beware.  Beaufort has so many inlet rivers and tidal creeks, you could have trouble exploring them all in a lifetime.

2. “We love this Quiet Little Town.”  I might hear this more than any reason people live in Beaufort.  There are two types of Beaufortonians.  The first is born and raised here.  The second has moved here.  No matter which, they all agree that they love the small town feel.  In a time where most areas have far too much urban sprawl, Beaufort remains relatively unspoiled.  I cannot count the clients that have moved from larger cities such as Atlanta and Charlotte.  Big time development and gridlock traffic is something we here certainly don’t miss.

3. “Lots of culture and history.” Being the 2nd oldest town in South Carolina, Beaufort’s history is still prominent today.  Historic architecture, Gullah Culture, and past civil war monuments mark days gone by.  Our history has paved the way for a lot of tourism. Residents and visitors alike enjoy taking carriage tours of the downtown historic district, touring the Penn Center, and viewing the Antebellum homes in the Old Point section of town.

4. “All the Festivals.” You name it, we have a festival for it here.  Among these are the Water, Soft Shell Crab, Shrimp, Gullah, Sea Music, and Film Festivals to name a few.  The most famous is the Water Festival, which attracts tens of thousands.  In a smaller town, it is great to have constant city organized events to go to.  Seniors, families, and young love birds can all be seen in attendance.

5. “I’m ready to retire.” CNN Money, Reuters, and Carolina Living all named Beaufort, South Carolina to it’s top ten places to retire.  Dataw Island is commonly referred to as Beaufort’s best retirement community.

6. “It’s a GREAT place to raise a family.” Small town values and lack of big city distractions make the area a wonderful place to raise a family.  Living in a small town makes a community tighter.  The adults do more activities together, children grow up together forming with life-long friendships, and much of the big town mischief doesn’t happen here.  Families here also enjoy parks, festivals and boating activities held throughout the year.

7. “A good job market is important.” While no big industry resides here, historic and resort tourism, real estate and medical centers provide a very low unemployment rate and lots of jobs.  Beaufort Memorial, the resort islands of Harbor and Fripp, some of the prettiest property in the country all are part of what make the job market very strong.

8. “Wow, the weather!!” Mild climate is certainly one of the top reasons that clients move to Beaufort.  In the 70s for around 6 months a year, I cannot imagine anywhere to top our weather.

9. “Lots of Southern Hospitality and Charm.” The first thing I noticed when exploring the Beaufort area was how incredibly nice the people are.  If you don’t want to take my word for it, Southern Living readers have voted Beaufort the top Southern Small Town for 7 years in a row.

10. “All the Food!”  One of the things people really love Beaufort is the food.  Being a small town there are not thousands of restaurants like other big cities.  What the town lacks in quantity is makes up for in quality.  Unlike many cities, Beaufort hasn’t turned into a strip mall of chain restaurants.  On just about ever corner, there is a Mom n’ Pop’s eatery that will have your taste buds begging for more.  The best part is it’s all original.  If you eat at Yes Thai Indeed, LT’s County Cookin, or Bricks on Boundary you better enjoy it.  Because you won’t find these places any where else in the world. Delicious, original food is a Beaufort tradition.

Beaufort is a great place to live in. The reasons to live here are as varied as the people who give them. Beaufort attracts all kinds of people – singles as well as families, Northerners and native Southerners, younger and older people (and all the ages in between).

Malaysia “?” A Country Of South East Asia

Malaysia is one of the important countries of Asia and the richest of South East Asia which is divided into two main regions or divisions Peninsular Malaysia and East Malaysia and is very close to the Equator; therefore Malaysia is among those countries having a tropical climate. The capital city of Malaysia is Kuala Lumpur which is also a very well established and a popular city of the world. Geographically the two distinct part of Malaysia are separated by South China Sea giving this country a source of international trade through sea routes as well. This beautiful landscape contains several coastal planes, densely forested hills and huge and some of the beautiful rain forests of the world. Most of the visitors travel to Malaysia because of the outstanding beauty and astonishing landscape and book their flights to Malaysia Malaysia has become an important place for business professionals as well as many foreign investors are putting their money to invest in the country and to find out the heavy returns on their capital. Business professionals from Korea, Nepal, China, The Philippines, and Middle East are working on different mega projects in order to capitalize more and more to gain profits and to increase their share capital. These business professionals are always in search of their cheap flights to Malaysia and thats why these people are working in all over the country.

The climate of this country is tropical and considered to have pleasant and healthy effect for both the natives and the tourists traveling through out the year. Thousands of tourists from different parts of the world also visit Malaysia for their travel and tourism purpose and because of this reason they search for their cheap flights to Malaysia. There are two monsoon seasons in Malaysia as well, the first one is between October and February and the other one is from April to October. The temperature through out the year changes according to different seasons and climatic conditions. The average temperature doesnt fall too much and remains with in the range of 27 to 30 degrees Celsius so this country can be ranked among the warm countries of the world.

I am a great lover of music and love to join late night parties. Last month I took my cheap flights to Malaysia and found a variety of places with exciting nightlife activities.

The South Park Restaurant in Review

The South Park Restaurant in Review

For my restaurant review, I chose a restaurant called South Park located on 9th and Salmon. I know a Sous chef by the name of Dan Johnson. He has been in the restaurant industry for over 15 years. He started out as a dishwasher for some small restaurant in the early 90’s and worked his way up to becoming a chef. Since then he has bounced from restaurant to restaurant. Some famous restaurants he worked at are Portland Steak and Chop House, the Brasserie, and Harbor Side.

During the interview I asked him the 19 questions and since he is back of the house, some of them he was clueless about. One piece of information that he explained to me is that with the WCI graduates, they flood the restaurant market in Portland. There is a lot of competition but he is always successful at finding a job with his experience. At some jobs he has applied for, there are “chef tests” where he has to make a certain item in order to get a job. He claims that he doesn’t get nervous while taking these tests with the executive chef over his shoulder. But who knows.

This restaurant he works at should be white table cloth. But due to their concept it isn’t. Instead, it’s wood tables. At every table is a bottle of wine for decoration. The server will remove the bottle after he or she greets the customer. The bar is awesome. It’s round and has a metal top. A curtain or drapery separates the restaurant from the bar. I notice some bottles of wine sitting around, but most of them must be in the back.

The food they serve is almost all seafood. Many different kinds of fish and shrimp are served. The fish includes salmon, halibut, snapper, and tuna. Every restaurant has an exception when it comes to their food concept. So they also serve pastas, New York steaks and sandwiches. There are also many desserts and salads to chose from. The price range per plate is -.

South Park has been around since May of 1998. There was already an existing restaurant in its place. They have and open kitchen which is unique. They also have a brick oven which is displayed to the customers. There is always a flame burning in the oven, but I have never seen anything baked in there.

One interesting question I asked him is “Who is your clientele?” He replied that “We get everybody”

I had to ask him to be more specific because “everybody” could mean transients off the streets. Then he said that there are many business people dining during the week. They hold special events or known as banquets. He also said for race that there are many Asian customers who come in with there families. I also had asked him if there any “regulars.” He said there are people who are there weekly, and then there are customers there nightly who drink at the bar for social activity.

I asked him about marketing and if South Park does any advertising. He was unsure but he did know that customers comment about the fish coming out of the corner of t he outside of the restaurant. He thought that might attract some customers interested in eating seafood. I asked him what were his three greatest problems and challenges. He said that it is easy to lose your temper in the back of the house. But since they are an open kitchen, he can’t use profanity or yell really loud. He has to keep a professional profile at all times while on the line. He also complained that he never gets a weekend off because he has a set schedule of Thursday through Monday.


I would say that South Park probably does not want to expand. It is a wonderful establishment that will be there for years to come. I am not sure why the previous restaurant went out of business or if it was bought out then changed by the owner of South Park. I enjoyed conducting the interview and learned new information about the place. For example, I thought the restaurant had been there for about 30 years. But it is newer than I had originally thought. I know in Portland there is plenty of competition among the seafood restaurants.

Without being nosy, I wanted to know the rate of pay for somebody like Dan who had been in the industry for more than 15 years. He only makes .15 an hour and won’t be getting another raise for about 6 months. He doesn’t receive any tips because he is in the back of the house. Talk about a dead-end job.
