We didn't shop here as the shops weren't so interesting. Little coffee shops, boarding shop. The Sylvia Hotel and April's Restaurant the highlights.

My family & I had a wonderful time. Except for me being nauseous due to pregnant, so the fish smell was a no go with me. But I still manage to have a good time. Been here before when I was younger with my parents. Have always enjoyed it.

The parking here is horrible, otherwise it is great! There is shopping from local retailers, restaurants, and sometimes sea lions, fisherman, and crabbers.

Nice area to leisurely stroll and take in the beautiful Bay front. Watch the fisherman unload their catch and prepare for selling and shipment. Fascinating to see how fast they fillet the fish.. Lots of cute shops to browse, all prices ranges. Many good restaurants with varied menu choices. Something for everyone. Beautiful day trip.

First, if you are averse to fishy smells, this is NOT the place for you. There are numerous, small shops, ice cream stores etc., and at certain times of year a bunch of LOUD sea lions hanging around the docks. If you have an hour or thta is unscheduled, then I would say that a visit here is worthwhile. If... More

We wandered in and out of several of the shops. The shopkeepers were very friendly and helpful, which has always been our experience. They told us about a few things that were happening, and chatted about other little things.

Lot's to do parking was a bit hard. and a way's to walk. But well worth it once you reason the Bay-front. TONS of seals that's were the smell comes from and fish factory's but we and the grandkids enjoy the seals on the docks. and the small shops.

If your looking for a place to eat this is the place to come. Otherwise there is really not much to do. And the smell at times was no good. Made you not want to eat.

The bayfront is a narrow road with hard to find parking on busy weekends. If you like fishy smells and don't mind crowds of people walking up and down the sidewalk, looking for something to do, you will like this.
