Great place to go with the family. The Marginal Way walk was spectacular. We did a lot of shopping at the quaint downtown stores. Beautiful city.

Loved walking on the marginal way. Beautiful views and new things to see every time. Have walked it several times and every time is a new experience. You can sit on benches and watch the water endlessly.
