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.

Love the feel that you have stepped back in time. I just wish they had more stores with current merchandise, like gift shops with local items and clothing stores and not so many antique stores.

Welcoming and lovely, I felt at home when folks stopped to chat. The quaint buildings gave me a lost-in-time sense which was perfect for my visit.

Several buildings had booths of used\antiques that were nice for browsing. They were ok (1 building was deceptively large) but as with anything like this, it depends on what you are looking for. My wife enjoyed it more than I did. We purchased only 1 item.

This is just a special little town set below a lovely mountain range. Go any time of year . . . and just enjoy eating downtown and walking around looking into shops, etc.

Centertown Bedford is loaded with small local shops, and restaurants. A very nice place to stroll around and kill a few hours, and grab something to eat.
