My son will be graduating boot camp at Paris island. How far is that from this location.
Thank you both. This does help me. He will be graduating beginning of December.
My dad retired from the Marines and I grew up in the area for some years but I always go back every summer to Fripp Island and Beaufort both places are layed back and beautiful. However it is a little drive to Parris Island around 30 min. If you were staying several days then it would be worth it staying at Fripp because the hotels fill up fast. I don't know when his graduation is but you may want to check Bed and Breakfast or hotels in Port Royal if there is any available.
Congratulations to you and your son; thank him for his service, please. Parris Island MC Station is 29 miles from Fripp. However, Fripp is about 20 miles from the outskirts of Beaufort, so it is a bit of a drive, but a beautiful one. We often go to Parris Island to use the commissary, and BX, so it's doable, if you so desire. If you want to be close to your son, Fripp may not be best, obviously. Choices of hotels around Parris isn't particular good, however.
