The shops and restaurants are great. The boat rides are such fun. The footbridge is fun to watch. Don't forget to walk the Marginal Way. There are reasonable fees for the boats and food.

We had a nice little walk to Perkins Cove and got to walk on the famous foot bridge that pedestrians actually raise for the boats going under. Shops were very touristy and not my taste.

We happened upon Perkins Cove after taking a leisurely walk along Marginal Way with friends. We loved this quaint little New England area. We stopped for lunch and drinks, had 2 for 1 lobsters, ice cream for dessert on the way out after enjoying a 90 minute sail around the harbor on The Gift. A Must see!

Great place to stroll and shop and eat. Bought a spectacular piece of art from Todd Bonita. Be sure and stop in and visit his very small artist studio in Perkins Cove.

very nice shops and plenty of restaurants and food...everything from "fast food" lobster to sit down restaurants.

Nice little area to explore and eat but parking is tricky and can be expensive. Try taking the trolley.

Take your time to walk around and visit the shops. My favorites are the candy store, out of the blue jewelry store, and the ice cream shop. There is something for everyone in the cove from watching the boats come in and out to going to the toy store.

We liked the view of the ocean from the restaurant we ate in. We found some takeout restaurants a little expensive but the food was decent.
