Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) -

The City of Beaufort is getting quite a bit of national publicity after it was named among Southern Living Magazine's "Best Small Towns We Love" in its latest issue.

The magazine selected five small towns that evoke the best in southern charm and tradition. On top of that, CNN, Wall Street Journal and Fodors also recognized the quaint little city on their own lists this week.

"You know, tourism drives our local economy," said President and CEO of the Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce Blakely Williams. "It's a huge piece of what we do every day at the chamber, all these accolades are just great news, which reinforces all the great visitors and dollars that we're going to see pumping into our local economy."

This month's edition hit newsstands today.
