Really quaint and eclectic string of antique stores. We bought a Senufo mask, a two Dogon ladders and an old Chinese bronze which as long time dealers, we know to be authentic. Got them for a song although we well informed the sales people we would still be buyers at triple the price to which they laughed and offered us... More

Bay street has terrific shops and restaurants. It is steps to the beautiful bay front park. The Verdier house museum is very interesting too. Love it!

If you are a history enthusiast or just love old homes, this is the place to come. Walk the streets, starting on Bay Street and follow the neighborhood for some of the most spectacular homes that were built when Beaufort was founded.

We enjoyed shopping along this street. Plenty of dining establishments to choose from for lunch or dinner, and a variety of shops - there really is something for everyone. And if the weather is nice a stroll through the waterfront park is very pleasant.

Nice place to take a stroll on both sides of the street. Some stores are the usual tourist places. Many slanted towards art . Take time to walk on the water side of the stores. Great places to sit and relax.

Lovely old buildings. Unique shopping, from Market Place indoors to ice cream parlour to harbour to entertainment. Everyone friendly and interested in where you are from. Beautiful people!

Many dining choices. Live music at many establishments. Good watering holes to watch sports games, and/or catch a bite to eat for lunch.

A safe place for walking around to window shop and stroll along the water's edge. Complemented by benches, the walk along the water is calming and peaceful. The shops are all local and feature beach themes and galleries. Plenty of restaurants if you desire a bite to eat.
