Beaufort was settled in 1709 and is the third oldest town in North Carolina, but that's not stopping it from getting ranked by Budget Travel Magazine as 2012's "Coolest Small Town."
Beaufort is the county seat of Carteret County and is located east of Morehead City. With a population of slightly more than 4,000 people and only slightly larger than 5 square miles, the town of Beaufort is 'packed' with history, adventure, and beauty.
Beaufort has come a long way since its early days as a fishing village and trading port that experienced frequent pirate raids. Even the dreaded Blackbeard pirate paid Beaufort a visit.
Now, however, Beaufort is raided by families looking for an excellent place to vacation or a waterside town to purchase an extraordinary waterfront home. Given the city's age and history, there are many traditional-style homes that draw visitors from around the world.
A walk through the present day docks will reveal a city rooted in boating tradition. Instead of a clipper ship moored at these public docks, you'll find luxury yachts and sailboats awaiting their owner's return from enjoying the fine dining and shopping in Beaufort.
Across Taylors Creek, you might catch a glimpse of the wild horses that occupy Carrot Island - an island to which residents and visitors will kayak, or get a water taxi across, so they may picnic and swim.
