If you can find a parking place, and if summer crowds don't bother you, the sense of history and the smells/sights of a real fishing community are right there. Make an off-season visit and it feels like an intimate experience...with the best restaurants and shops still open. Places like this often become part of your family's DNA with or without the crowds. One of our favorites.
