“Salmon Jumping and Shopping”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Creek Street offered a good way to explain salmon to my kids. There is a creek running under the street and it full of salmon swimming up stream. Along the way there are shops you can browse for gifts and mementos. Good for a nice walk and shopping.

“Must see.”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

This is a historical sight that can be accessed on foot. If you have ambulatory problems, this will be very crowded a tough to get around. It is mainly a souvenir sellers market with many unique shops.

“A perfect place to see the salmon spawning....”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Creek Street offers a perfect deck area to watch the hundreds if not thousands of salmon swimming upstream to spawn. There are some cute shops in the area and one with my favorite T shirt....."spawn til you die"....so appropriate for the area. Grab an ice cream cone from one of the shops and stroll through the area. If you have kids with you they will love watching the fish.

“Do an excursion instead”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Unless you really want to spend hours and hours shopping, there's not much here to see. It's charming architecturally, but that's it. Oh and you could rent a pole and go fishing (when the salmon are running).

“Nice walk but over-rated”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We had a nice stroll up to and along Creek Street. It's definitely a scenic area, with plenty of history. However it's been over run by tourist shops, and much of the authenticity is lost.
