The harbour has a charm of New England. Shops and restaurants border the cove. We ate at Barnacle Billy's. Delicious cold water lobster.

At the end of the Marginal Way. Cute little port with cute shops and fanciest pedestrian draw bridge i had ever seen. We purchased fudge at a friendly shop, but found it to be merely OK. Come for the view. Bypass the fudge.

Perkins Cove has a very picturesque little harbor, and the view from the deck at Jackies Too restaurant is incomparable. Lots of shops draw multitudes of tourists looking for trinkets and souvenirs, and the crowds can get thick at times. Break away from the tourist...More

It is a quaint little area with a very pretty wooden drawbridge. There are a few nice jewelry shops and artisans. I much prefer the main area of town. There is no parking unless you want to pay $25. Better off the 20 minute walk...More

Located at one end of the Marginal Way. Start your walk here with a nice seafood dinner, then walk it off. Or go shopping in one of the gift shops.

I don't know as I don't go in-season. The trolley doesn't run during the week when we're there.
