The shops were your average touristy shops for the most part, but the historic buildings they are housed in are lovely. We were amazed to find vending machines to buy beer from in many stores on The Strand! Didn't partake, but thought I'd add that fact. We ate at Fisherman's Wharf and then wandered around the Strand shopping for an hour or so afterwards. Gosh, the houses and shops on this island are wonderful!

We had so much fun walking the Strand. We shopped ate some carmel chocolate covered apples and ice cream and went to the Haunted Mayfield Manor super scary with an Alfred Hitchcock feel definitely worth the $10!

Nice area to stay, still work getting done. Lot of entertainment, shops, eating ... can be quite quiet at times but generally a good area to stay.

An enjoyable place to go stroll around, just make sure to keep tabs on your parking meter. It is not immediately obvious but parking is NOT free anywhere!
