America's Happiest Seaside Towns | 1. Beaufort, South Carolina | This town is a fun stop over a bit off of 95~cute shops, restaurants on the water and some nice art galleries and my husband had to go BC his favorite movie "The Big Chill" was filmed here..
Sweetgrass basket weaving was brought to the Charleston, South Carolina region by slaves who were brought from West Africa. The art form has been passed from generation to generation. You can watch artisans at work and purchase baskets at the Charleston City Market. You can also drive along the Lowcountry roads and find roadside stands such as this one in Edisto Island, South Carolina.
