The old town and its history make for an interesting walk. The bush pilot monument is great great way to watch the seaplanes take off. I walk around the old town then past to a newer section which provided a different aspect.

Old Town is not very large, but it is still 'authentic'. To get a feel for what life was like before modern access to amenities, it is definitely worth a stroll around the neighbourhood.
