Lots of quirky little shops mixed in with some high brow shopping experiences and good restaurants. Truly something for everyone as you walk along.

Bay Street is a great place to spend the afternoon. There are numerous boutiques and shops on the street providing a wide range of products including local art, a tasting shop for flavored balsamic vinaigrettes and infused olive oils, and many antique shops and jewelry stores. You will also find multiple restaurants on Bay Street.

Beaufort has an adorable quaint historical downtown near the waterfront complete with shops and restaurants. We were there during the annual Beaufort Water Festival and despite the crowds, there was plenty of room to navigate the streets. The shopkeepers were very helpful and friendly.

We enjoyed our strolls on Bay Street in the evenings, especially when we could swing in the park. Wish there were more people out, however, and the stores would stay open until 9 p.m.

Enjoyed the marina & downtown area during the Water Festival! Was difficult at first to find a handicap spot, but was informed by a law enforcement officer we could park any where as long as we had our placard!
