Beaufort honors 300 years with 300 free nights


The Beaufort, Port Royal & Sea Islands tourism partners are teaming up with the Visitor & Convention Bureau to offer incredible deals and free trips to lucky winners in celebration of Beaufort’s 300th birthday.

The groups are excited to announce the launch of a 300 free night giveaway sweepstakes at BeaufortSC300.org. In addition to the free, two-night stays, 13 local accommodations properties are also offering guests amazing vacation packages starting at just $300.

Several Beaufort area tour companies are also participating in the celebration by offering a buy one ticket, get one half-off discount. The tours offer sweepstakes winners and other guests the opportunity to see what makes this 300-year-old town such a remarkable piece of history.

Beaufort’s Tricentennial celebration began in January and will wrap up on September 17 with a party at the Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park along with a historical parade throughout downtown. The parade will depict Beaufort’s past 300 years chronologically. Gary Sinise is scheduled to be the grand marshall and his Lt. Dan Band is also expected to perform on September 17. A concert by the Parris Island Marine Corps Band, a presentation by the color guard, a gun salute and a birthday cake are also part of the event. The sweepstakes and promotional packages allow guests the opportunity to participate in this historic event — either for free or at a significant savings.

The 300 free night sweepstakes will run through September 30. The $300 package discount offer will not be available after September 30th. Participants are only allowed one entry during the sweepstakes period. Winners will be able to redeem their two-night stay until September 2012. Property taxes may or may not be included in the $300 rate. Additional restrictions may apply.
