»The Kazoo Factory

As the only Kazoo manufacturing company in the United States, this one-story musical toy facility is also a museum with tours and a gift shop. Kids and adults have a chance to make their own kazoos, too. Educational and entertaining, this museum shows that there's more to the little plastic sound maker. Invented in 1883 by Warren Herbert Frost, a kazoo is shaped like a submarine that, when blown into, modifies a person's voice. It is both a professional device and one that can be played just for fun. Located in a plain warehouse, The Kazoo Factory museum has an extensive display of early designs, materials and historic pieces. A factory tour shows how a kazoo is made in different styles, sizes and colors. Parking is on-site. -Natasha Lawrence

»George Elliott House

A Greek Revival mansion built in 1844 and formerly owned by the Beaufort Historic Foundation, the George Elliott House is one of the beautiful structures in Beaufort that Sherman did not destroy during the Civil War. It was used by the military until 1865. Deserted at that time by the original owner and rice planter, Dr. W. A. Jenkins, as Union troops approached, it was sold by the Federal Government for back taxes after the war. The ground floor of the building is open to self-guided tours Monday through Friday, and the upper floors are now used as private offices. Visitors can purchase gifts and artwork from the Garden Shop. There is no admission charge. -Natasha Lawrence

»Coastal Discovery Museum

In a move that all Americans should envy, the people of Hilton Head banded together and placed stringent zoning restrictions on their island. As a result, a great deal of the region's ecosystems remain untouched, making Hilton Head an ideal place to get closer to nature. The Coastal Discovery Museum further facilitates that connection by providing visitors with a bevy of interactive exhibits, programs and tours that impart an expanse of knowledge about the intricacies of Lowland South Carolina's web of eminently biodiverse wetlands. See website for event calendar, educational programs, membership info and more.
