There's quite a few places to live at here in Beaufort. Most of the driving wouldn't be more than 20 mins on a 45 speed given it's a pretty small town. Look into the preserves here, not even 5 mins from the hospital, you also have the oaks just a few more minutes from there. I'd stay away from Ashton pointe or some of these other places. As far as "getting away"like you stated in your other posts, it's a rather small town here.
There's actually a lot of scoobies here and nice cars period, as for the car scene not so much.
