If you are looking for great food you do not have to stray far from Bay Street. Many of the delicious restaurants have porches where you can dine outside with a riverside view. Several of the places also have live music as well.

After a full day beaching and birding at Hunting Island State Park we had plenty of time to go to our rental home, get cleaned up and off to shop and eat dinner in Beaufort. Great shopping cool stuff everywhere including Chocolate in the Bay Street area.

This was a last minute trip during an unseasonably cool few days. Beaufort is a great getaway spot. There are so many shops, galleries, restaurants/bars along Bay Street & we were able to walk everywhere. Highly recommend.

Peggy and I enjoyed our walk along Bay Street after paying $2 for two hours in the pay parking lot a block north. There was a nice selection of shops, several with local and regional arts and crafts. At three blocks or so, it was short enough that we had time to see it all and have lunch at Plums,... More

A wonderful area to shop and to eat! We've never left this here empty-handed. The shops are top-notch and not "trendy or cheap" by any means. Love this area for shopping low country finds.

Because the city was taken by the Union in the Civil War, the old homes on this street along the waterfront are magnificent.

Quaint downtown right on the water. Great for strolling, especially on Sunday mornings. So much going on most of the time and cute shops and restaurants.

This is the main street going through the historic downtown area. If your an art lover, you'll love strolling through the various galleries. I was expecting more restaurants to choose from for a nice seafood dinner.

Some nice shops but a lot of the stores close early. Very relaxing walk and the streets are not too crowded even in the daylight hours.

Their are so many shops throughout Bay St and the surrounding streets. Visit Bay St first, it will leave you with the best first impression of Beaufort and will show you what small town charm is all about!
