My boyfriend and I just moved to Beaufort, NC. He knew people down here, but I didn't and still don't really know anyone here. Are there any young people down here that feel the same? I haven't really gotten the chance to make new friends because I am not sure where the hangouts are in Beaufort, Morehead City, and surrounding area. I just graduated college and need to get out and have fun! Let me know!

A warm welcome to Beaufort! Hope you enjoy our town.

While I'm not young, except in spirit, I do observe a lot, so with that in mind, you might check out these places:

For TGIF: Aqua, Clawsons, Finz, Dock House, Back Street Pub (smoky), Beaufort

For downhome b-b-q and such: Rolands, Beaufort

For WiFi and hanging out: Taylors Big Mug Coffee Shop and the coffee shop at Cru Wine Bar, Beaufort

For casual food and killer pizza (try the pesto with fresh shrimp): Beach Bumz in Morehead City or No Name in Beaufort (great Greek pizza)

For good sushi: California Roll, Morehead City

For funky atmosphere, cheap eats and shooting pool: Royal James Cafe, Beaufort

For free live music: Dock House (every weekend in summer)--free with a water view, cheap beer on draft

Contra dancing: Duke Marine Lab, Pivers Island (might be an older crowd?)

Summer beach hang-outs: Shackelford Banks--get little ferry from Front St. or hitch a ride with a boat-owning friend, also claim a beach on Bogue Banks such as Fort Macon (arrive early for parking, cross the Atlantic Beach Bridge, turn left and go a couple of miles to the park)

Cheap thrills: pick a spot along Front Street (try the little gazebo at the Front St. Park) and watch the sun go down, then stroll down to the general store and grab an ice cream cone...

Hope this gets you started until some "young-un's" chime in with their recommendations...
