The Beaufort, South Carolina area has a number of great activities for the Christmas season. Here are a few:
Beaufort SC events
Night on the town – Dec 7th 6-9pm, Go shop downtown and observe the tree lighting with Santa!
Light up the night – Dec 8th, 5:30-8:30 This is a boat parade which can be watched from the waterfront park and marina.
Christmas parade – Dec 9th 3pm – This is always fun.

Festival of Trees – Dec 3rd to 8th http://festivaloftreesbeaufort.com/schedule-of-events/
Oatland Island petting farm – http://internet.savannah.chatham.k12.ga.us/schools/oat/default.aspx – this is my favorite barnyard petting farm, though it is a bit of a drive from Beaufort…about 30-45 minutes. There are also other “local” animals on exhibit, my favorite of which are the wolves. If you have toddlers or preschoolers, consider signing up for a Toddler Tuesday event, which will reduce your entrance fees and give you a fun indoor activity and group time.
Chic-Fil-A in Beaufort usually hosts a visit with Santa, as does the mall in Savannah.
Toddle Town Preschool and Gym also usually hosts a parent’s night out to aid in shopping during the holidays.
Milledge Morris – Choose and cut Christmas trees – this is where we bought our tree…great experience! I totally recommend them! 167 Trotters Loop, Beaufort, SC 29902. Phone: (843) 525-6416.
Also, if you are in Beaufort and looking for a mom’s group, I hear Moms Of Beaufort is a great group. 😉 You can find them on Facebook.
