Beaufort, SC is One of the Best Cities for the Arts

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, February 06, 2018

Ashton Pointe Apartments, Beaufort, SCSouth Carolina isn't the first place that comes to mind when you think about the arts. However, the state has hidden pockets of cultural wealth that will rival big art markets like New York and San Francisco. Beaufort is one of the five best cities in South Carolina for the Arts.

Beaufort, SC

Recently named a SC Cultural District by the S.C. Arts Commission, downtown Beaufort is a city on the move. Criteria for the nomination includes: live performance venues, theaters, galleries, public art, and museums. Apparently the city of Beaufort had over 50 "assets" that led to its cultural district designation. The city is proud to embrace the arts, and celebrates with festivals, live music, and performing arts. Beaufort is also a visually stunning city. Lakes, rivers and streams add to the coastal appeal.

Living in South Carolina

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, February 01, 2018

Ashton Pointe Apartments, Beaufort, SCThere are no big cities in South Carolina. Even Charleston is much more similar to the vibe of a small town than it is a big city. That’s what helps preserve the charm of South Carolina. With an undeniable character marked by palmetto trees and ethereal dangling moss, wrought iron accents to the architecture, signature hospitality, and friendly smiles from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Lowcountry, South Carolina is Southern living at its finest.

Local Flavor: South Carolinians Never Need An Excuse To Get Dapper

But they certainly won’t pass one up, either. In South Carolina, women get dressed in their best classic pastels, Lilly, and hats while men break out the seersucker and bow ties for events like Polo matches, Marsh Tacky, and the big man on equestrian campus: The Carolina Cup. Men and Women of South Carolina even take full advantage of days like National Seer Sucker Day to celebrate and display a love for Southern and South Carolina traditions and just plain looking good.

Cuisine: The South Carolina Barbeque Is Better And The Peaches Are More Plentiful

Anyone who moves to South Carolina will notice a lot of new additions to their daily menus including classically southern staples like shrimp and grits, biscuits, boiled peanuts, blue crabs, and hush puppies. Don’t forget to douse it all in generous amounts of hot sauce before washing it all down with a sweet tea. Peaches are big here too. Even though they’re synonymous with Georgia, South Carolina actually produces more of them and they’re amazing. But if you’re looking for that one true South Carolina dish, then you have to grab a plate of their barbecue. This mustard-based goodness takes the southern classic and makes it something all their own.

Nightlife: South Carolina Shows You A Laid Back Good Time

You won’t find the bright lights and never ending night scene of places like Las Vegas or New York City. This is South Carolina, where life is laid back and everyone has to be up early in the morning for work, church, or brunch. But that doesn’t mean that people here don’t know how to have a good time. If you’re invited to an oyster roast, cancel everything and go. You’ll have one of the best nights of your week and make some new friends while you’re at it. As for a night out on the town, you’ll find your time spent mostly around the many local restaurants, bars, taverns, and pubs where you can kick back and relax with friends while enjoying some of the awesome local craft beer.

Weather: South Carolina Is The East Coast Paradies

The Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions of the East Coast are usually either blanketed in heat or snow. The Southern coastal states are just marked by stifling heat. But South Carolina falls right in the perfect pocket, giving them one of the best climates along the coast. Summers do get hot and humid, with July highs ranging from the high 80s to the mid-90s and the humidity can sometimes make you feel like you’re swimming on dry land. But the spring and the fall are glorious and the mild temperatures of the winter make those summer months well worth it. January highs hover around the high 50s and low 60s across almost the whole state and have lows that rarely dip below freezing. You might see the occasional snowflake fall from the sky but it’s rarely more than passing flurries.

Commute: Horns Honk Less In South Carolina

All those laid back vibes throughout South Carolina make getting around the state better than a cool breeze on a summer day. Although you do need a car to get around the Palmetto State, you won’t waste your life away in it. The average commute time for the state overall is 23.2 minutes, which is nearly two minutes under the national average.

Cost Of Living: South Carolina’s Price Tag Is Almost Too Good To Be True

Many places around South Carolina provide a high quality of living, which would make most people assume that it is an expensive place to live. But it’s not. In fact, the cost of living index in South Carolina is 92, and that’s 8 points lower than the national cost of living index of 100. Housing is the most affordable part about living here. So you can take those extra dollars and spend some having fun around South Carolina and save the rest for a rainy day.

Memories Are Made At South Carolina Beaches

Although winters aren’t long and cold in South Carolina the way they are farther up north, there’s still no more exciting time in South Carolina than spring. It’s the time when the famous coastline comes back to life and everyone can get ready for their family vacations. The beaches here aren’t just for tourists—everyone across the state enjoys the coastline. Myrtle Beach is the most prominent resort area with over 60 miles of shoreline but there are plenty of other beaches to enjoy including Hilton Head Island, North Myrtle Beach, Surfside Beach, Isle of Palms, Garden City, and Sullivans Island, among others.

The Differences Of Lowcountry And Upstate

South Carolina isn’t just resort beaches. The state is also differentiated by Lowcountry and Upstate South Carolina. Although the areas do share many similarities and South Carolina traditions, they have distinct things that set them apart. Low Country is marked by marshy lands where you’ll find a strong Gullah influence, much more closely related to a stereotypical Georgia, especially around St. Helena Island. This is the area where you’ll find thicker accents, a lot of antebellum and postbellum homes, and a festival to celebrate everything from the endangered gopher tortoise to catfish, rice, watermelon, and more. Upstate South Carolina is located to the northwest region of the state with the city of Greenville being the most prominent of all of its destinations.

3 Reasons Why You Should Not Buy a Home

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, January 11, 2018

Ashton Pointe Apartments, Beaufort, SCThe Fairy Tale

We are constantly told throughout our youth that we are to follow a certain path. Grow up, go to college, graduate, get a job, get married, buy a house, have kids, live happily ever after. But we all know this isn’t a linear path and life has a funny way of throwing you curve balls when you least expect it.

Buying a home can be a good thing, but it can also be another shackle that holds you back from pursuing your dreams. Here are three reasons why you should hold off on the largest purchase of your life.

Lack of Mobility

You’re in your 20’s. Not only is this a time for excitement, it’s a time for decision-making. Do you stay in your college city? Do you move back home? Do you follow your dream of chasing the endless summer? Buying a house at this point in your life certainly does one thing - it plants your butt firmly in one location and gives you a heck of a lot of responsibility.

You may think, “But I can sell the house at any time if I choose to move.”

Well, yes. But then you have to deal with closing costs, paying a broker, etc. If you move shortly after buying your home you’ll take it on the chin with fees and expenses.

You also have to deal with maintenance, property taxes, insurance, your roof developing a leak and the kid down the street that keeps egging your house. Do yourself a favor. Keep yourself mobile and your options open.

Increased Debt Burden

You will be taking on one of the largest purchases of your life and a mountain of debt.

Debt is a shackle that will hold you back from taking flight and can impair your ability to make decisions. When you have 30 years of debt payments (i.e., a mortgage), you can’t pack up and leave for that trip-of-a-lifetime. There is also your debt-to-income ratio that is important to consider. When this ratio gets too far out of whack, it will get more difficult to obtain loans for things like a car, credit cards, etc.

The Buy Versus Rent Debate

Whether you knew it or not, there has been a long-standing debate on the financial benefits of buying a home versus renting. The recession in 2008 that sent the real estate market swooning was painful for those that owned property. But even over the long term, the benefits of owning property can be argued against.

Just to be clear, owning real estate is not a bad thing. But, the numbers don’t lie. Buying a single-family home is not as great an investment as some would have you believe.

Ways to Keep New Year’s Resolutions

Joseph Coupal - Friday, January 05, 2018

Ashton Pointe Apartments, Beaufort, SCThe New Year has just begun and you and your friends at your apartments in Beaufort, SC may have made a few New Year’s Resolutions. Let 2018 be the year that you stick with them. Here are some tips:


Visualize yourself once you've reached your goal. This takes your focus away from what's holding you back and puts it onto all that you'll receive from your efforts. Whether your resolution is to be 15 pounds lighter, to cross the finish line or to be successful at that fantastic new job, see it now.

Rephrase Your Goal

The problem with most resolutions is that they are not positive. Instead of saying, "I'm going running at 5 a.m., 4 times a week," say, "I'll slip into a size 6 for my cousin's wedding!" That sounds more fun.

Take Baby Steps

You need a plan, not just a goal. That means breaking it down into small steps to take along the way. It's also a good idea to break down your big picture into smaller, actionable steps. Set goals that seem easy, so you get to win.

Celebrate the Small Stuff

Success breeds confidence. Take note -- maybe even write down -- every time you make a step toward your resolution. You'll be surprised how often you are making headway.

Get a Buddy

Pair up with a friend who has a goal of her own and meet once a week to check in with each other. Most people lack accountability. Set up the support you'll need, which more than likely includes having someone to keep you motivated.

Invest Some Money

Consider spending a little cash on your resolution. Cash or the like can help your resolution, because you don’t want to waste it.

Learn From Your Mistakes

Don't stress out if you already fell from grace. It is more important to get back on the horse as quickly as possible. Instead of getting down, use it as a learning experience.

Give up Something Else

Making time for your resolution usually means something else you do has got to go, but it shouldn't be something you love. What are you doing that you're not passionate about.

Know Your Passions

As long as you know what drives you, motivation may start to come.


Keeping a resolution can mean stepping outside your comfort zone -- and that takes a lot of confidence. Let go of fear, doubt, insecurity and nervousness. Try a relaxation technique, whether it's meditation or yoga or prayer -- whatever de-stresses you. It will help you take one little risk at a time.

Give A Free Holiday Gift in 30-Seconds or Less

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, December 20, 2017

Ashton Pointe Apartments, Beaufort, SCIf a friend, relative, or valued service provider has a website, give them the gift of a business Facebook “like” this Holiday season. This act is free and will literally take you 30 seconds or less. By doing so, you help your friend or relative further establish business credibility and trust from an online standpoint.

Why do this? The reason is simple. Facebook “likes” is something that business owners can refer to promote their business popularity and interaction with their clients. It is also a widely accepted conclusion that Facebook “likes” play some role in how a website converts visitors into customers.

So if you know anyone with a website and wish them well in business, take 30-seconds and “like” their business Facebook page. Look for the Facebook logo usually located at the top or bottom of the website’s home page. Then shoot them a quick note saying, “Happy Holidays. I recently “liked” your business Facebook page and wish you continued business success in 2018 and beyond”. It would be a kind gesture and one that cost you nothing other than 30 seconds of your time.

To all our regular readers of this blog, we wish you all Happy Holidays and only the best for 2018 and beyond.


The South’s Best Small Town 2017: Beaufort, SC

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, December 13, 2017

No matter where you’re from, where you’ve been or where you’re going, Beaufort feels like home.

Ashton Pointe Apartments, Beaufort, SCEven the name is pretty: Beaufort. Just hearing it, you can picture the quaint little town that’s been racking up accolades in recent years. It just sounds nice. Beww-fert, beckoning you to come hither, and see what all the fuss is about.

And because of those accolades, you know what to expect from the Lowcountry gem: a storied history and rich heritage, splendid mansions framed by moss-hung oaks, and stunning views of rivers and marshes. Locals are much too polite to brag, but we’ve made a lot of "pretty places" lists, even in The New York Times.

We’ve become a tourist destination, a must-see spot on any trip to the Coastal South. Set foot here, and you’ll see why. This place lives up to its billing. Everything about Beaufort is flat-out charming. As a matter of fact, you can’t turn a corner without swooning. Enchantment is in the air, along with the intoxicating perfume of Confederate jasmine.

It could be said that Beaufort has it all. Beauty, check; scenery, check; heritage/history, check; charm, check and double-check. There are some bonus points, too cultural events, water activities, unique festivals, and fine eating joints featuring local seafood. All well and good, but the question is, what makes Beaufort so special? Besides the obvious, why do we continue to make the lists of great little towns, year after year? Is there something in the water that casts a spell on the list-makers? One visit to Beaufort and zap—you’re in love. It’s such a great place that you want everyone to know about it. You want to spread the love.

All well and good, but the question remains: What about Beaufort makes it so irresistible? Besides the obvious, why do we continue to make the lists of great little towns year after year? Is there, perhaps, something in the water that casts a spell on the list makers? One visit to Beaufort, and zap—you’re in love. It’s such a great place that you’ll want everyone to know about it. You’ll want to spread the love.

Beaufort is more than a vacation spot or a photo op. It’s literally and figuratively halfway between Charleston, South Carolina, and Savannah, Georgia—not as grand as Charleston or as funky as Savannah but a homey, comfortable in-between. More than anything else, Beaufort is a way of life. Ask anyone who lives here about the Beaufort state of mind. It messes with your psyche; it spoils you for anyplace else.

Come for the scenery, and you’ll start looking at real estate before the tour bus even pulls up to the curb. Walking down Bay Street, with the Beaufort River on your left and a row of historic houses on the right, you won’t be able to resist— you’ll pause and picture yourself on one of those charming verandas.

You’ll see yourself in a rocker, lulled by sweet salt breezes as you watch all the tourists walk by. No matter where you’re from, where you’ve been, or where you’re going, Beaufort feels like home.
