Beaufort Named Happiest Seaside Town

Posted: Updated:

Ask any tourist and they'll tell you, there are a lot of reasons to smile around Beaufort.

 

"You can't beat it the food the people the atmosphere. It's on point," Jay Dalberg said.

 

So it comes as no surprise to the people who know the city that Coastal Living magazine named Beaufort the nation's happiest seaside town.

 

"Of course it's deserving. I mean, look at this place," Dalberg added.

 

Sending the good vibe all over the nation through Coastal Living's upcoming publication and a big spot on the TODAY show means more than bragging rights for Beaufort.  The Chamber of Commerce director says it can mean big bucks, too.

 

"We know this will bring some relocation numbers, but we also think there will be some economic development from this kind of announcement," Beaufort Regional Chamber's Blakely Williams said.

 

Those benefits will take some time, but when it comes to tourism:

 

"Probably in the next week," Rosanna White with Southern Rose buggy tours said. "It's going to mean a lot more business for Beaufort to see what everyone is talking about. And for our business, tourists are what we do," she said.

 

And while the hard numbers will come down the road, the chamber is already getting hints that they will be happy with the outcome.

    A Florida beach cleared out – with the exception of a woman and lifeguard who tried to save her – when a shark was spotted heading straight toward swimmers on Tuesday afternoon. The panic of the 10-foot shark and people screaming from the pier was caught on tape.
