It's a really nice port but too crowded for my opinion. It's nice to walk around on a sunny day and there are variety of restaurants, bars, shops, and other stuff to do.

Didn't know this place existed. So glad we went out there. We walked around and had so much fun. We can't wait to get back for a longer period.

It's a nice old port where all the private boats and lobster boats are docked. The area is just quaint with character of the northeast ports

Fun place, great to be by the sea, but a lot of people in the summer and a lot of cars. Definitely worth checking out

Nice town with lots of shops and things to do. Artsy. Plenty of restaurants and local performers. Has a few shady characters roaming about but typical for most cities.

Restaurants are open late...so I would imagine some of most of the shops in the area would be too...as this is a tourist area. I would imagine it's beautiful in the evening. ENJOY!
