You can walk for hours along the walkways surrounding Victoria's Inner Harbour. If you get tired, ride on of the little Harbour Tour boats.

Just walking is great, going into the stores is ridiculous. Enjoy the local colour on a nice, sunny day. Do try Rogers' Chocolates; Murchies (the coffee and tea sales side) and Munroe's Books - all locally owned and long term.

Interesting shops, food. Stick your nose in the cigar store, have a treat in Murchies or Rogers.

This is a great street to wander up and down if you don't get sucked into one of the many tacky tourist shops. Munro's Bookstore is a must visit as is the Irish Linen Shop.
