Learn the real saga of America at the Santa Elena History Center. Founded in 1566, Santa Elena was the first European settlement in North America. Her fascinating but little known story is one of religion, geopolitics, cultural clashes, war and struggles to survive. The History Center is now open seven days a week and is housed in the newly renovated, federal courthouse in downtown Beaufort. Today, the Santa Elena site is a National Historic Landmark, important for its associations with the 16th-century conflict between Spain and France for control of the New World. Located on nearby Parris Island, the site is also considered archaeologically significant and tours of the site itself are available.

A 5000 acre State Park. Hunting Island retains its colonial designation of the "Hunting Islands," which served as hunting preserves for Lowcountry planters and elite in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Hunting Island light was constructed in the 1850s and soon thereafter destroyed by Confederate forces in the early days of the Civil War. Ten years after the Civil War ended the lighthouse was rebuilt, and later relocated to its current position. The 1893 Sea Islands hurricane swept Hunting Island and other nearby Sea Islands clean, but the lighthouse survived.

A must see, Old Sheldon Church was originally known as Prince William's Parish Church and was built in the Greek Revival style between 1745 and 1753. It was burned down by the British in 1779 during the Revolutionary War. In 1826, it was rebuilt only to be burned again by General Sherman in February 1865. Today, these gorgeous ruins from a bygone era are found amongst majestic oaks and scattered ancient graves. Inside the ruins of the church is the burial site of Colonel William Bull, who, along with General Oglethorpe, was key in establishing the physical layout of Savannah, Georgia. It is now a popular site for wedding ceremonies, photographers, and ghost hunters. An annual worship service is held the second Sunday after Easter.

If you’ve never paid homage to those fallen for our freedom, then you must go by the National Cemetery. The ironically beautiful 33-acre site is the resting place for both Confederate and Union soldiers that died during the Civil War. It was originally established during the northern occupation of Beaufort for men who passed away in Union hospitals. In 1863, Abraham Lincoln’s National Cemetery Act transformed it into a National Cemetery, and, in 1997 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In addition to Civil War soldiers, the cemetery is also the resting place of many Medal of Honor recipients and other fallen soldiers from every conflict the United States has ever been involved in. Open from 8 a.m. to sunset seven days a week, visitors can drive through the entrance to view the monuments and memorials from Boundary Street.

Ladies, if you love a man in uniform, prepare to be overwhelmed. And gentlemen, try not to be intimidated by all these Marines.

The legendary legacy of the United States Marine Corps, as well as the stimulating account of Port Royal’s past, is outlined at the Parris Island Museum. It features thousands of artifacts, images, and other materials that illustrate the history of Port Royal and Parris Island from the early Native American inhabitants to the modern Marines. The 10,000-square-foot museum is located on Marine Corps Recruit Depot.

If you’re looking for a reason to get outside and enjoy wildlife, Port Royal Cypress Wetlands is the place to do it. Easy to get to, there is parking along Paris Avenue which is basically the first road you come to when visiting Port Royal. Not far along the path, you will begin to hear the rookery before you see it and it is absolutely stunning! The snowy white egrets are the most obvious, but there are several species of birds that call this place home, at least part of the year, including herons, hawks, eagles, owls, falcons, geese, ducks, and other migratory waterfowl. It is a birdwatchers paradise. The cypress trees, Spanish moss, and budding flowers are beautiful too. In addition to the birds and fauna, you will alligators, turtles, and even a snake or two if you are lucky! You definitely don’t want to let your canine companion off the leash anywhere around here.
