Bay Street has some lovely shops and if you want something different this is the place. Clothes, gifts, art, antiques and more!

“Charming downtown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Bay Street is the epitome of a charming small town "main street" experience. Bay Street is right on the Beaufort River and is a very walkable few short blocks of cute restaurants, antique stores, art galleries and other inviting shops. Bay Street is also a short walk from several other must-see Beaufort attractions such as St. Helena's Church, carriage tours, the point (an absolutely amazing neighborhood filled with gorgeous mansions) and many B&Bs and other points of interest. I lived in Beaufort in the 1970s and this is one of the few parts of Beaufort that has retained its historic charm over the last few decades. It should not be missed!

“Fun browsing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Do wish stores stayed open a little later on weekends. There were a lot of people walking downtown, but almost everything was closed at 5:00. It was just starting to get pleasantly cool around 7:00.

“Quaint historical town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

I loved the historical district of Beaufort SC. The waterfront is very well done with benches and a walking path. Enjoyed watching the boats come in and out.
