There are so many things to see on this walk. It is very clean and hospitable and the vendors are super nice. If you like to see boats and ships of all sizes, it’s there. As well, impressive plaques giving a history of memorable events.

There are lovely shops and pop-up restaurants along the harbour front, along with many options to rent bikes or segways, take a ferry to Dartmouth or enjoy one of the many patios. Don't miss out on seeing The Wave. The kids love to climb it!

We enjoyed the walk along the waterfront so much! It’s a beautiful place and there are lots of benches (even some hammocks) to accommodate those who need a rest or want to people watch. Tons of places to eat and shop too.
