There was just a bunch of stores you can find at any mall. Nothing special. We did find a great ice cream place though!

State Street is where you go when you're in town. Lots of places to eat and drink, small shops as well as big (having Marshalls is pretty legit).

State street is filled with great restaurants and shops. We took the trolley from our hotel to the waterfront, hopped off and got a free transfer to State st. We spent hours going through stores and cafés. Fun time

This once quaint street is becoming a cheap loud bar scene with too many transients begging for money and occupying (sleeping) on the sidewalk. Will NOT be returning anytime soon.

You can go to the middle pier and take a shuttle down State Street or down the beach area. Seniors only .25 cents all other .50 cents.

In the mood to shop or eat then this is the street for you! There are many small boutiques and specialty stores as well as big department stores such as Saks, Old Navy, H and M, etc. There are several parking lots that are only a few dollars for a couple of hours. But the walking was nice too!
