Beaufort

Getting Here and Around

Beaufort is near the far eastern end of U.S. 70, which links to U.S. 17 to the north at New Bern. The town has a small airstrip but no commercial flights. For boaters, it's located along the intracoastal waterway, and downtown docks are available. The closest major airport is in New Bern. The town is a perfect park-and-stroll location, with historic sites, museums, and a retail center all within walking distance of each other.
