Great music in the evenings.

Lively spot in the evenings...restaurants, bars and live music! Good for people watching, relaxing with a drink and watching the boats in the marina.

Like every other shopping area off a port. Same items to buy. Options for dining, taxi services, and alcohol.

Not worth getting off the ship. Expensive. Not much to offer. Not pretty in the least. Nothing worth buying.

We absolutely love the music on Fridays and Saturdays. Great time meeting new friends and dancing in the evening. Wish we could've here for the Christmas tree lighting

When I drive into Freeport from West End, I typically lunch or dine at one of the many Port Lucaya restaurants and have never had a bad meal. The straw market is also fun.

They will barter a bit, but like to follow you and try to get you in there booth like any other market. All were very nice I felt safe would of went here by myself and not thought anything about it. Prices were a little high and most of them had the same stuff.
