Nice area. Cool to see the variety of boats at the docks. Farmers Market right there with a plethora of goods inside from crafts to corn. Worth the walk down here. Good views of Old City from below.

Had our apartment here and it was a great area to stay. Old town and other areas were very convenient. On nice days lots of people walk, bike and skate by and the area has a great relaxed feel. Plenty of restaurants and the Marche is nearby. Very safe as was the rest of the city.
