For one, at the corner of Main & Bridge St. you'll find DOC FOGSMITH'S VAPORIUM, which is new to the area with a additional shops in the town of Moneta, Va. Electronic cigarettes, is the new way to kick the habit... More

This downtown area is not "happening!" On the main street there is really only a couple of antique shops...that's all (as far as shopping is concerned). The coffee shop was closed... it kind of had a solemn feel to it. There was a really nice art studio off of Depot St... This town has obviously seen better days... just needs... More

I moved to Bedford 22 years ago, and Centertown was a vibrant place to go down to. But over the years the town has had its troubled times, and Centertown is a lot of vacant buildings. If you like old architecture, this is a place to visit. The old courthouse is a place to see. There is many antiques shops... More

This is a small town with interesting shops. There is free parking and everything is within walking distance. I spend a couple of hours there every time I am in the area.

Beford is a nice little town. Not a lot to see, but if you like antiques there are a few shops with quite a large selection. The day were were there (Monday) most of the artisan shops were closed, so can't really review those. The Town Kitchen Bistro is wonderful - a must for breakfast or lunch. I would give... More

After reading some reviews we wanted to stop and take a look. Cute but was not worth getting out of the car for. There was not much to see or do.
