I thoroughly enjoyed walking around Perkins Cove. There are so many little shops to visit. My husband bought me a beautiful bracelet but no one is pushy begging you to buy things. There are several places to eat. We had lunch and then later had some ice cream. We enjoyed walking on the draw bridge and seeing all the lovely... More

Neat place to have a morning cup of Joe and watch the activities. I'm certain the warmer the morning the more activity.
