Quaint downtown right on the water. Great for strolling, especially on Sunday mornings. So much going on most of the time and cute shops and restaurants.

This is the main street going through the historic downtown area. If your an art lover, you'll love strolling through the various galleries. I was expecting more restaurants to choose from for a nice seafood dinner.
