Welcome to Beaufort County, SC:

Beaufort County is located in the lowcountry of South Carolina and Beaufort is its county seat. It is one of the South's fastest growing counties, primarily because of development south of the Broad River clustered along the U.S. Highway 278 corridor. The northern portions of the county have also grown steadily, due in part to the strong military presence around the city of Beaufort. As defined by the U.S. Census Bureau, the Hilton Head Island–Beaufort Micropolitan Statistical Area comprises Beaufort and Jasper Counties. Beaufort County's population is over 70% urban. The two portions of the county are physically connected via the Broad River Bridge, which carries South Carolina Highway 170.

Nestled between Charleston, South Carolina and Savannah, Georgia - Beaufort County is rich with history, culture and outdoor beauty. Beaufort County is composed of hundreds of barrier and sea islands and its warm climate, pristine beaches, vibrant Gullah traditions and true southern hospitality welcome visitors from all over the world throughout the year. Beaufort County is home to the famous Parris Island Marine Corps Recruit Depot and the internationally known luxury resort of Hilton Head Island. Gorgeous private islands, abundant waterways and nature preserves embellish the landscape. Vast expanses of marshlands and lush maritime forests create spectacular scenic vistas and rich habitat for egrets, herons, pelicans, dolphins and other wildlife species.
