Beaufort SC is a favorite place. On Bay Street, I can get an art fix, visit my favorite bookstore, get a great cup of coffee to carry with me on the harbor walk, and find out what the local artists and crafts people are doing! All of that and I haven't yet visited a chain store!

This street is primarily for shopping. There's nothing historical or all that interesting. It's worth a quick drive through or walk around, but not worth all your time.

Historic part of town on the bay. Many shops to see nautical as well as a variety of shopping available. Restaurant Q on Bay was very good. Public atmosphere, friendly wait staff and excellent food from sandwiches to barbecue platters. Prices reasonable

We enjoyed just looking around at a few of the galleries. And we really enjoyed gelato at a nearby coffeshop. Other than that, we weren't blown away by Bay Street.
