Not many serious artists here now, but fun to browse the shops and galleries and have a coffee. Scenically, quite dramatic and pretty.

I have visited this area many times. Has great art galleries and restaurants. Since it is a very compact area it easily walkable.

We took the water taxi and once on Rocky neck it was kind of disappointing. They do not give you any idea of where to go or information.

After reading reviews I was excited to go, but was disappointed when I left. Although it was funky and artsy, there wasn't a lot of shopping that I was expecting. Perhaps I didn't see it all? Also, this colony of artists is basically all fine art/ gallery art, not so much crafts and little things. The artwork is definitely beautiful, and many of the houses are artwork as well with the different colors and landscaping in front. I would love to go back and walk around, just not shop.
