There's a lot of little shops that sell unique and one of a kind items that are affordable. It's nice to walk around and enjoy the view of the river or walk around and do window shopping. If you're tired, there are a lot of places to sit and relax; and sometimes there could be some entertainment going on.
The Riverboat ride is very informative and relaxing, I'd recommend others to go on the boat ride.
