Yea its touristy and yes its expensive but its clean, well laid out and just plain fun! As with all tourist areas, its what you make of it! Theres plenty to look at and many eateries. It was cool watching the fishing boats come in. A good way to walk off those extra calories from the fudge shop!!

This was a great place to walk around. Cute shops and a variety of places to eat. We loved looking at all the different types of boats and watched a fishing charter come in and unload their catch. They have a lot of fun activities to enjoy.

We walked thru recently just to see what was there, and doubt we will be back. Just a bunch of over priced chain stores.

It wasn't high season and there was ample parking the day and evening we were there. We were there for dinner and then again for lunch. There is an assortment of restaurants to choose from.

Shops, ice cream, zip line, boating adventures, bars, restaurants and much more along this boardwalk. Very cool attraction for a family to visit and a break from the "normal" places.

Lots of restaurants and bars. If you go at the right time you can watch the fishing boats come in with the catch of the day.

Great place to walk and sight see. Lots to do ...check out the zip line. Lots of restaurants to choose from and stores to pop in and out of while walking along. Wear comfortable shoes. Flats preferably. Lots of walking. Go over to the pier area and watch the boats too.

There are a few overpriced restaurants here and several shops, along with a Starbucks, but it certainly isn't a place I would visit more than once - just not enough reason to go back there.
