So worth the trip. Lots of great shops, restaurants, and fun things to see and do. Great by yourself or with your family. Enjoy!

There was a lot of variety in the shops. They were not all selling the same things. Some were expensive galleries, others were typical touristy t-shirts etc., many things locally produced. Also a variety in dining--coffee shops to historical restaurant. Real working fish area, includes the smell of fish. Our only disappointment was the absence of the sea lions but the city can't control that.

Park and walk along the bay Front while taking in the view and stopping for chowder along the way. There are lots of interesting shops, some very touristy but others that are reasonable and different. Skip the Undersea gardens and instead visit the Free port Dock next door where the sea lions hang out.

Cute little street with many restaurants and shops lining the (seafood) processing buildings. Some bars have live music on the weekends.

Been here twice so far and so nice to stroll. Don't miss the sea lions barking on their dock and the glass store!
