Well-maintained public restrooms are available at the Beaufort Visitors Center. You can't miss this former arsenal; a crenellated, fortlike structure, it is now beautifully restored and painted ocher.
The Beaufort County Black Chamber of Commerce (www.bcbcc.org) puts out an African-American visitor's guide, which takes in the surrounding Lowcountry. The Beaufort Visitors Center gives out copies.
