“A historic town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

From a West coast US perspective, Fairhaven has a fair amount of history. Plenty of interesting shops and cafes with some must visits like Village Books. Plenty of "we tolerate everything thing" crack-heads and druggies as well. Streets are steep so if you don't get around well you'll be restricted to the immediate center, but that's where most things are anyway. A fun place to spend the day.

Fun town. Walk the South Bay Trail for a beautiful harbor view. Lots of fun shops and restaurants. Activities on the Village Green in the summer.

“Transplant Center”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

The place is filled with Californian transplants and meth heads. Expensive farmer's market. Hard to find parking and crowded.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Recommended by friends, we were unsure what to expect in Fairhaven. Found an up and coming revitalized area of shops, restaurants and a great book store. They have kept the old town feeling.Be warned that the area is on a hill and my over 80 friend had to go slowly , so we did not get into the side streets.
