Parris Island

World famous Parris Island in South Carolina is the U.S. Marine Corps recruit training depot, and the starting point for all those east of the Mississippi River aspiring to become proud U.S. Marines.  The base is usually open to the public, offers tours, and features an excellent museum that traces the history of the Corps from its beginning. Beaufort and Port Royal, with their variety of nice accommodations, welcome thousands of Marine parents and family members year-round for graduation ceremonies.
