  • Enjoyed walking down the boardwalk and the vendors and restaurants there and the art work as well. Really enjoyed Spookies and Blackwater Ice Cream.

  • This is a lovely area - lots of interesting sites; lively even on weekdays. Gets very busy if there are cruise ships around. Lots of nice restaurants also and great for people and boat watching.

  • Lovely, serene and historic. A place to relax, a place to explore, a place to enjoy. Eat, drink and be merry! Wear comfy shoes! If you climb the hill to the top take it nice and easy! Surprisingly, going downhill that steep was a challenge too and I was wishing I brought open toe sports sandals too. The whole place is a delight. Worth the visit!
  • Beautiful place. Very nice place to stay and watch the ships as they sail across the water. There are bridges that go long enough into the water, bringing someone closer to the moving boats. Restaurants along the water fronts also sell tasty and delicious meals. Pizza, chips, drinks and many other delicacies are available at the restaurants.
