Beaufort, N.C., and the Down East communities are family-oriented places. These are safe, small, close-knit communities where crime rates are low, the schools are good, neighbors help neighbors, and children grow up with an appreciation for nature. That’s why so many people who grew up here return to raise their families after they’ve spent time in bigger cities. And that’s why people who vacation here often dream of moving here for good.
