A few quaint little shops to browse. A carousel and arcade area with homemade fudge and treats. A nice place to relax. Free trolley got us there.

Nice place to visit with shops, restaurants, and things to do and see. But because there are so many commercial fishing boats docked here, the smell of rotting fish fragments can be very annoying. It would behoove the Dock-Master to enforce cleanliness of these boats to eliminate these bothersome odors. It would encourage more repeat retail and sightseeing business.

This was great fun walking at the marina and shopping in the many small boutiques and eateries. A wonderful walk all around the marina.

Several will take you out to tour the harbor, or make day trips... More

Some seals were right up on a dock that we passed. Great views. Afterward we ate dinner and had ice... More

We went to the Harbor to enjoy some food and Ice cream. We had a wonderful walk along the water where all the boats are. This place also has an old-school carousel and arcade for kids. There were artists that had chalked some pictures on the sidewalk. I had to take a picture of Gene Wilder. We also walked over... More
