Went over to the village to walk around while staying at the Holiday Inn. There are several restaurants and small shops. Most were closed as it was after 9 on a Sunday evening.

We spend two days wandering around the harbor village with children ages 10 and 8. There was plenty to do and more than enough to eat. My only real complaints are the lack of paper towels in the bathrooms and that it closes so early....More

There are fun shops and a good selection of restaurants. It's lovely to walk around and enjoy looking at the boats docked at the harbor. Because improvements are being made, several paths were closed and it was necessary to take long detours to get around.
