BEAUFORT, S.C. — A major travel magazine has rated towns across the nation for their beauty and one South Carolina community certainly made an impression.
Condé Nast Traveler described its list as including everything from "coastal cities to southern gems" so it may not be surprising that a city that can be described as both - Beaufort, South Carolina - was on the list.
It was ranked among the 26 most beautiful cities in the country according to a story posted on the magazine's website.
The historic mystique of the town was touted as a major reason for the rating.
"Beaufort is famed for its Antebellum mansions and architecture, some of which date to the early 18th century," the description reads. "The town is the second oldest in the state and combines a rich history with beautiful coastal backdrops."
While maybe not related to its visual appeal, food is also mentioned in the Condé Nast Traveler description, suggesting visitors drop by Old Bull Tavern, Saltus River Grill, and Breakwater Restaurant & Bar.
A few Southern towns actually made the list but Beaufort was the only one in South Carolina.
