Beaufort County resorts make up more than a quarter of a “top resorts in the South” list released by Condé Nast Traveler earlier this week.
The list, based on reader response, ranks the Top 30 resorts in the South from as far north as Virginia and as far west as Alabama.
Eight Beaufort County resorts made the list, including seven resorts on Hilton Head Island, which was the only town making the list more than once.
Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort ranked third on the list coming in behind The Lodge on Little St. Simons Island and The Swag in Waynesville, N.C.
Never miss a local story.
