Beaufort Historic Van Tour

This one hour tour by van covers Beaufort’s historic district and gives you a chance to learn more about our beautiful town and its history. Our air-conditioned Beaufort Tours van takes you to sites and homes where the stars stayed in downtown Beaufort. Locations surrounding Beaufort such as The Gump Medical Center (funded by Forrest’s “gazillions” he earned running the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company), The National Cemetery where The Great Santini was buried and the bridge from Forrest Gump that he crossed on the way back east from his cross-country run – yes, the “Mississippi River” bridge in actually here in Beaufort.
