lots of things to see and lots of charm. We saw lots of big fish, sadly no manatees. Plenty of bars for a drink, people watching and maybe a bite eat. Shops round out the experience. Take a walk!

This is the place to see the sailing schooners , restaurants, turtle museum and board walk.
Its great to go out sailing on the America 2 or the Western Union which is the flag ship of Florida.The fishing boats come in here and large tarpon leap out of the water to get the fish scraps as they clean the fish they caught. Pelicans also compete for the fish scraps. You may even see a manatee there. The boardwalk has just been re=boarded and is in mint condition. You can buy oysters here for 50 cents. If you go out fishing and catch fish, some of the restaurants will cook it and serve it to you with sides for around ten bucks.

As you walk around the harbor you can get a feel of how it once was; with the old shrimp, sponge and turtle boats hauling in their harvest. (Those days are long gone and I hope we learned from something from our society's poor behavior. ) Nowadays, pvt. boats, charter fishing boats,and a few tall ships are the norm. Seek out Dennis on his 42ft. Catalina charter sailboat and you can take the helm once you get out on the water. Look in the tourist books and find two for one drink coupons at a few of the Seaport bars.. ....just tip like you are paying for two! Get one for each person in your party. then ask the bartender if they want one for each of you and they usually just take one for the group and use it the next time. (don't waste them at happy hour). Scooner's has awesome music, starting at noon. Alonzo's and Half Shell have half price appetizer's at happy hour, get a couple and make it your meal. B.O.'s fish shack has the best, quick fish and fried "konk" on the island. (the fritters need some help though) If your hotel does not have a nice bar at the pool go to Dante's in your suit, day time only, and grab a few boat drinks, they will also cook your catch. Granted, most of these places need a few more IPA's and dark ales in their selection but a new brewery is on the way....We saw a dolphin hunting there one night.

Loved walking around here during the day and night. At night the boats are lit up and it was Christmas time so lots of lights. There are a lot of restaurants around here as well. We kept coming back each day to walk around and look at the boats.
