An Express Ferry to Boston

I walked the pier at 5:30 AM. It was a perfect time to take pictures. There are commercial fishing boats and a ferry that will take you to Boston.

Beautiful views and a nice walk after a meal. Kiosks line the wharf with a good variety of merchandise.

We passed by this wharf several times before we decided to investigate what exactly it contained. Although it was quite warm, walking by the water with a nice breeze cooled us off. The free standing shops had already closed (it was 7PM) along with the pirate museum; we decided to return during the day when both shops & museum would... More

McMillan wharf is always the first place we look to park when we visit Ptown because it is so centrally located. It is also where the fairies come in from Boston. It's always fun to come out and see the boats tied to the pier.

Small artisans at kiosks dot the pier, which hosts several fishing fleets and non-motorized watercraft rentals.

Took a walk out here in the morning. Lovely and very quiet. Sat for a while and just stared out to at the ocean. Not too hard to take.

Although not all the little shacks are open yet on the wharf, it's always nice to walk to the end and sit and look out to the water and watch the fishing boats come in.

Very nice Wharf. A lot of things to read and look at. That's where you can park and enjoy your day on Commercial St. or go on the Fairy Boat or the Whale Watch or the Fishing Excursions. Very nice to just walk on and see all that was mentioned above.

Due to it being early in the "tourist season", we had the chance & the room, to leisurely stroll on the wharf, view the town from that perspective and just absorb the wonderful atmosphere!
