We love Beaufort, SC and always stay on Harbor Island. One place we like to is The Chocolate Tree. The aroma is wonderful. I recommend stopping in and looking around, but take your time, there is much to see and taste.

After visiting Parris Island, head to Beaufort and the Chocolate Tree. They have delicious Chocolates and other candies. For the military person, they have huge chocolate EGAs, the service emblems etc. Friendly and helpful staff.
