Commercial Street is the very beginning of the Old Port section of town. It's where everyone goes to take a ferry or tour boat ride, shop for souvenirs and find a great place for lunch or dinner. During summer, it is TEEMING with tourists, and it's delightful. It can be hard, or nearly impossible, to find a place to park if you don't get there early in the day. There is a $10.00 lot, but even that fills up fast. The street parking...really...don't bother looking! There are people crossing the street everywhere. The state law says you let people cross if they are in the cross-walk, and they mean it!
The shops are wonderful, the restaurants are a delight. It's hard to go wrong, and if you're looking for high-end gifts or souvenir t-shirts or lobster lollipops, you've got plenty to look at. Come early, roam around and then have lunch. It's a shopper's delight, and if you can stay for dinner, all the better. Enjoy. Those of us who live here take all of our visitors to Commercial St.
and everyone loves the experience.
