Popular place just off the highway, lots of great one of a kind gift and souvenir items. Many unique talented vendors displacing their hand made crafts. Lots of variety glad we stopped.

Not bad, have some nice items and a nice collection of shops but very touristy. A good place to stretch your legs and get a soda but the restroom is awful.

The village is cute but the stuff is overpriced cheap goods made in China. Most of the stores were closed midweek in August. The Lobster is the eye catching main attraction.
