Kids loved the ice skating and ferris wheel. The shops were very expensive so we didn't buy anythig. Had coffee in the coffee shop and walked down to the docks to see the boats.

We visited the Wharf while vacationing. The store selections were expensive and few to shop . Barely saw anyone at midday. No need to return.
