Crowded at times but tons of adult fun. Great outdoor dining, drinks, ice cream, shopping, shows, sights! Park at the Pier and have a great time!

“Nice for a stroll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Had a nice but too short a look around whilst waiting for our whale watching trip. Can find some good bargains during the sales as well as unique souvenirs

Plenty of niche shops, restaurants and sights to see as you walk along the main street which buildings full of character.

“The reason to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Briefly, this is one of those strips that is so packed with people, restaurants, galleries, shops, and even more people that it always feels full of life. It does allow one-way traffic, and cars sometimes venture along it, but basically it remains full of a steady stream of all kinds of people. At night it becomes even more magical.
I can't resist mentioning someone's comment that, in the misty light of the evening in early summer, it has a "Night of the Living Dead" look, as streams of people flow along, appearing out of the mist and staring ahead into the darkness. This is not a bad thing, just one of those interesting phenomena that bears repeating.

“Good People Watching and Strolling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

It was nice to walk around and people watch. There are a lot of performers on the street. A lot of the shops sold the same type of touristy things. There are a lot of restaurants that were pretty good.
