This is adjacent to the Downtown Waterfront Park. Part of the annual Shrimp Festival takes place here. There is a public rest room here, if needed. The views of the boats are fantastic. There are swings, benches, and paths to enjoy while you are here....More

Very nice spot to stop off and walk around, grab a bite and then window shop. We did catch a little bit of rain it's the coast.

Best place to stroll and window shop. Make sure you go on a First Friday of the month. A few times a year, the street is closed to auto traffic.

Oyster Cay Collection on beautiful Bay Street in Beaufort SC is a delightful shopping treat! Unique furniture, home furnishings, jewelry, accessories, collectibles selected by the owner herself in Bali and other exotic locations — it’s well worth a visit to this museum-quality shop.

Bay Street is not very long but is very well kept up and clean. It goes from the "downtown" area out past some beautiful old homes to Bluff Park. There are some nice shops, restaurants, and art studios on Bay Street.
