Just enough (businesses, restaurants, stores, schools, work) to have a comfortable way of life, but sometimes missing the variety of a city. Travel time to the next bigger city is 1+ hr.

Virtually no mentioning of violent crime in the area. Probably because of large military community, crime seems to be minimal.

Beaufort, South Carolina is a very beautiful place to live. It is a small town that everyone is so nice and welcoming. You can always count on someone to help you and be there if you need anything anywhere you go. This is a place that people tend to live in for years and even retire here. It is a military town so there is so much respect for our country and troops. Pets and families are very important to everyone in the area. There are many places where families and pets can hangout and enjoy a nice sunny day on the river. There are many local events such as the Water Festival, Night on the Town, and many other events that brings the community close together. This is a great town to live in and I wouldn't want to have been raised any other place.
