The City of Beaufort is
getting quite a bit of national publicity after it was named among Southern Living Magazine's "Best Small
Towns We Love" in its latest issue.
The magazine selected five
small towns that evoke the best in southern charm and tradition. On top of
that, CNN, Wall Street Journal and Fodors also recognized the quaint little
city on their own lists this week.
"You know, tourism drives
our local economy," said President and CEO of the Beaufort Regional Chamber of
Commerce Blakely Williams. "It's a huge piece of what we do every day at the
chamber, all these accolades are just great news, which reinforces all the
great visitors and dollars that we're going to see pumping into our local economy."
