Thanksgiving The holidays are here and Thanksgiving is finally upon us. I’ve always loved this time of year. The hustle and bustle of the season, searching for the perfect turkey that’s just big enough to serve the family and of course the popping crisp sounds of the turkey when I first drop it in the deep fat fryer. Yes there is nothing better on Thanksgiving Day than a fried turkey, succulent and juicy, warm and buttery, the taste is enough to send your senses reeling. Thanksgiving isn’t just about fried turkey though. Thanksgiving for many of us is about more than the food, it’s about spending time with the people you love. It’s about enjoying the best times with your family and friends. It isn’t about what you make for dinner that makes Thanksgiving important. It’s the people you spend it with that matters. I could spend Thanksgiving anywhere in the world but I would rather spend it here in Beaufort, the Lowcountry, with the people who mean the most to me. That’s what Thanksgiving is really all about... being thankful for what we have, particularly our family and friends.

Thanksgiving Day comes, by statute, once a year; to the honest man it comes as frequently as the heart of gratitude will allow. - Edward Sandford Martin

Town of Port Royal The town takes pride in its unique natural environment and its accessibility to that environment through its network of walking trails, community beach, boardwalk, and observation tower. Since Columbus discovered America in 1492, seven flags have flown over what is now the Town of Port Royal.

Union Church The Union Church, also known as, “The Free Church� was the first church to be built in the historic town of Port Royal. The land was donated by David F. Appleton and in 1878 cost around $1000 to build. It is currently eligible for recognition in the National Register of Historic Places and is being renovated jointly by both the Town of Port Royal and the Historic Port Royal Foundation. These two groups plan to use the renovated building as a cultural and community center.

Boardwalk Observation Tower At Port Royal Sands Beach you will find a waterside boardwalk leading to an observation tower. This tower provides fantastic views of Port Royal, Parris Island and the surrounding area. For tourists, this is a must see, is free to access and open year-round.
