Came with a college friend, her 2 year old and my 5 month old baby and our husbands. The neighborhood isn’t very nice (but our rental was beautiful so we thought it would be a good area). It has decent restaurants and great coffee shops. We walked to dinner one night and never walked anywhere again. Even in daylight. I can get over the pot but the homeless on drugs asking for money and staring you down just isn’t comfortable with kids. I never saw one cop in the area. Find a more family friendly beach. This is more a surf town.
