Beaufort is one of my favorite places to visit when we are in the area, and Bay Street is charming and quaint. A parking lot offers paid spaces - have exact change as the machines don't make change - but do allow you to buy more time should you want to linger in the park overlooking the bay. The shops...

This shopping street is very pituresque and fun to wonder along. Nice places for coffee and lunch. From there you can stroll down to the river walk which is just heaven, with wooden hammocks to laze on and watch the world go by.

We enjoyed shopping while strolling along Bay Street. The shops are darling and unique. Everyone was friendly and helpful, making it a most enjoyable day. We were impressed and surprised that most things we looked at were very reasonably priced.

This street was very nice for a stroll and shopping. The shop keepers were well informed about their city and seemed genuinely interested in talking with visitors and giving helpful advice on things of interest. Great variety of shopping available too. Something for everyone, not just the ladies.

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
