Bay Street Park has something for everyone. Find a bench and enjoy watching the bridge travelers, boaters, families, and pets.

Bay street is the place to head for in the old town on the river. Plenty of restaurants, cafes, many shops. Antiques, clothing and property shops. There is a park behind Bay Street where you can sit by the river, you might even see the bridge open to let a barge through.

If you stay in Beaufort you will enjoy walking around the shops on this street. Nice handcrafts, art, etc. Restaurants also very good. A nice place to meander and stop awhile.

I'd like to go back and walk around here some other time when the temperature is cooler. Bay Street is surrounded with streets that have really outstanding historical southern homes and also a lovely waterfront and nice visitors'. Definitely worth a visit. Bay Street itself has some very nice antique and art shops.

Cute shops with unique gifts. Very friendly, within walking distance of the City Loft Hotel. Most stores were very reasonably priced.

I've been to Beaufort and Bay St. several times. This time, we were traveling with an emerging artist and spent more than the usual amount of time in galleries. Mary Thiebault, in the gallery of the same name on Bat St. between Scott and West, was wonderfully generous with her time and advice about what it takes to work as... More

Great shops with featured local artists. Art galleries and handmade jewelry can be found in abundance. The bay is lovely and so peaceful. Lots of restaurants to choose from. It's not so huge you get overwhelmed, but enough to require an hour or so perusing at a leisurely pace.

Nice little coffee shops, restaurants and antique shops. We had fun walking around. I don't think you need more than an afternoon to pretty much get the feel. Nice, relaxing spot to walk around and sit by the water.

Quirky shops to appeal to both residents and tourists. Needs more shade on the street itself. Love the beautiful little shady alleys leading to little restaurants and shops. Nice walk.
