More local with its own personality. The farmers market is here. Cafe Sole' was a nice local coffee shop. Definitely worth a visit,

The kids loved this area to see the boats, the splash pad, the stem vents, and the weird rotating large eyeball. They played and giggled. Great place to cool off on a warm day.

Old port yes, but it as moved with the times, the port as retained original buildings, but the surrounding area is bang up to date, within easy walking distance of the lower town, it boast a small, but very interesting market.

There is a building with a farmer's market along the waterfront, and it is amazing. Lots of packaged food (including but not limited to maple syrup), that you can bring home.

By walking through the city you see so much more than by car. Little bistros, Art shops, trades stores, restaurants. This is the place to just slow down and to take it all in. We walked down to the lock and watched as fishermen launched...More

Three cruise ships, a zillion people (most spending their entire time taking photographs), busy restaurants, tourist trap shops etc. We won't be back.

While there’s not a lot to explore in this area, there was a Disney cruise ship in the port (for the first time). There was apparently great excitement about it as the city had fireworks in the evening to welcome the ship.

The stop you need is number five. Take a look at the map and you will see it's the closet. The big red bus (double decker) web site will give you this. Enjoy!
