“even in off season”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We thought being off season the place might be boarded up. But there was lots open and its fun to walk and stop for drinks at old watering holes.

“Shopping Near the Boardwalk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

When there was a cruise ship in port, everything seemed very busy, but orderly. When there was no ship in port, half the places were closed. Similarly, pricing of items seemed to fluctuate according to the presence or absence of a cruise ship being in port. The Market Place at the one end of the board walk, two streets over had a lot of places that would negotiate with you. If you couldn't get your price at one, you simply tried at the next one.

I like the open air atmosphere while you sip on a drink and take in the sea view, its perfect just for a drink or have a meal...

“Very relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Felt very comfortable while taking a stroll. Hardly any hustlers trying to sell you something or solicit money from you. Lots of options for food and beverage. Only $2 for a beer at most bars. Very nice views of Great Bay.
