Sea Island Carriage Company Tours

Look for the red canopied carriage at Waterfront Park where an hour's tour of historic downtown Beaufort begins every 40 minutes. Start times vary seasonally; so check the website or call for times. Your guide is very knowledgeable about the city's history from its founding through the Civil War and to modern times. Points of interest include mansions, churches, landmarks and even where original brick streets are covered by asphalt (where the bricks are exposed from wear). For newcomers, this tour is an excellent way to get introduced to a beautiful city. Tickets can be purchased at the Beaufort Visitor Center in the Arsenel on Craven Street or at the carriage booth at the park. Parking is by self-serve kiosk (put the receipt on your dashboard). Be sure to buy at least two hours (or more) to leave room for exploring downtown, strolling the park that has a view of Hunting Island, the marina and the harbor. - Natasha Lawrence

The Kazoo Factory

As the only Kazoo manufacturing company in the United States, this one-story musical toy facility is also a museum. Here kids and adults get a chance to make their own kazoos, too. Educational and entertaining, this museum shows that there's more to the little plastic sound maker. Invented in 1883 by Warren Herbert Frost, a kazoo is shaped like a submarine that, when blown into, modifies a person's voice. It is both a professional device and one that can be played just for fun. Located in a plain warehouse, The Kazoo Factory museum has an extensive display of early designs, materials and historic pieces. The factory tour shows how a kazoo is made in different styles, sizes and colors.

Parris Island Museum

Located at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot, the sprawling Parris Island Museum is a historic attraction. Here visitors can explore the many exhibits that preserve and retell the legacy of the Marine Corps. The museum boasts of a rich collection of memorabilia, which includes photos, artifacts, equipment and uniforms. Here history buffs can learn about significant events such as the origin of the Marine Corps and the Civil War. Tour the premises for an enlightening experience, and do not forget to visit the on-site gift shop for souvenirs.
