Today, we’re featuring 5 more must-visit websites in the Beaufort, North Carolina online world.
You can catch our first five here.
New Beaufort sites are appearing regularly, and enjoying these sites is a wonderful way to Bring Home a little Beaufort! Here’s our new list of 5, in no particular order:
Our first site belongs to the Beaufort Historic Site.
The Beaufort Historic Association owns and operates the Historic Site that, according to the website, “depicts 18th and 19th century life in Beaufort and includes six authentically restored historic buildings open for tours year round.”
Both the Association and the Historic Site have become well known for tours and events and for the famous English double-decker bus used for town tours and special functions.
The Historic site has become a favorite spot for weddings and receptions, and it’s not unusual now to see a wedding party enjoying the bus.
We have had fun people-watching during Saturday afternoon weddings while having a beer and some oysters at Old Salt, directly across Turner Street from the Site.
Our second site is from the Maritime Museum.
This site features Beaufort’s Maritime Museum, which is one of three Maritime Museums operated by the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources.
Our third site is related and belongs to the Friends of the Maritime Museum.
The Friends of the North Carolina Maritime Museum is a Beaufort-based organization that, according to the website, “is a private, non-profit organization forging a public/private partnership between supporters of our state’s rich maritime heritage and related natural history and the state of North Carolina.”
The Friends are super-active with frequent activities and events. The website features information on the Watercraft Center, the Museum, and the neighborhood.
Our fourth site is closely tied to the Museum, the Friends, and the Watercraft Center, it’s the Beaufort Oars’ site.
Who are the Beaufort Oars?
If you have spent anytime along the water in Beaufort, you’ve probably seen them.
The Beaufort Oars is a community based rowing club that utilizes traditional wooden rowing crafts. The Oars’ boats were constructed at the Watercraft Center. Check out the photos on the site and read more about the club on the Museum’s site.
Our fifth and final site today is from the Olde Beaufort Farmer’s Market.
The Farmer’s Market is held under those wonderful live oaks at the Carteret County Courthouse. The Market starts this year’s season next month on April 19th, the Saturday before Easter.
Don’t miss it!
Thanks, y’all, enjoy the sites, and stay tuned for more soon!
