Another list and another mention for Beaufort.

The most recent accolade comes in the form of a list of the country's Top 25 retirement destinations. Beaufort comes in at No. 18.

Here's just some of what the site says about Beaufort:

The town is still far enough off the beaten path that you have to really look for it. In fact, many people find Beaufort by boat because most of the town boarders an estuary leading to the Port Royal Sound. Of course, newcomers will quickly realize that there's more to the town than just a pretty face. At the University of South Carolina, Beaufort, older learners are privy to dozens of one-day and multi-session classes in history, literature, religion, music and more. 

Other semi-local locales gaining a mention in the CNNMoney piece are Athens, Ga. and Asheville, N.C.
