Many shops and restaurants. We saw seals sunning on the rocks. We ate at Old Fishermen's Grotto. Bought caramel apples on the pier. Good place for souvenirs for grandchildren.

We walked along the wharf, enjoyed numerous samples of excellent clam chowder, wandered through cute boutiques and had dinner overlooking the bay. It was a very nice evening. Parking is relatively handy and not too expensive.

I recently became wheel-chair bound. Will I be able to get around the area, and into most restaurants and shops? Is the wharf boards or concrete? Thanks !

They open around 9 or ten, but not really sure our first stop was the aquarium, that morning, breakfast shops open early, but once open lots to see and buy.
