Very nice little water front area full of activity, restaurants and shops. I can't rave enough about our visit here - from the free ferry and DOT trains/buses to the businesses along the walk with helpful and nice staff. The people in this town have got to be the friendliest and most helpful! Most places along the river offered free samples - frozen drinks at Wet Willies and fresh warm praline samples at the candy place for example. The various statues and monuments are enjoyable and beautiful. Highly recommend the candy factory/store! Can't recall name of one of the restaurants we dined at but you might want to look elsewhere for restaurants or at least review the menu before being seated (short of Vic's which is out of this world and has great seafood). Watch out for the men selling the flowers made out of reeds - a friend did get taken giving a "donation" for one of these. He gave her change back but handed it to her folded and omitted part of her change. There is a woman with a bicycle that also "sells" these on the water front. She was honest and also very helpful offering times/locations for picking up free ferry/shuttle and also providing some history and stories about the water front. I had no qualms giving her a few dollars for the info and reed flower. Her stories and history lesson were also quite informative and enjoyable. Other artists sell their wares down there and we had no issues with them - very unique and pretty items offered by mostly very nice people. If you check the schedule, fireworks are displayed over the water on Friday evenings (not sure if this is all year or how it works). We missed them our first night there. I can't offer any information as far as wheelchair access or restrooms though I am sure those are available. There was much there we didn't have time to see.
