Vendors, artists, buskers, sellers of varied goods and beautiful views of incoming harbor planes. Many restaurants to try and whale watching boats to take.

Definitely worth a walk down Wharf Street. It really has a carnival type atmosphere with street vendors selling all kinds of handmade articles. There are also a couple of food vendors who are worth a try.

wonderful place to take photos, walk around, view the locals/tourists and eat! It's always fun to just sit about and watch the people.

Felt like I was in Ireland with many pubs, resturants and rain. Had some street entertainment even in the rain. We could walk into most resturants and get seated quickly due to time of year October. The locals were friendly and accomodating. Didn't shop but will next visit.
