Several staff members at our cruise recommended us to go directly to creek street and we loved it ! It’s a nice walk and there several shops and cute restaurants. You can also see lots of salmon and even sea lions !

This street walk is a nice up hill walk along the creek. If your there during the Salmon run you will catch a look as they go up stream and use there ladder. Along the way are shops on the lower portion. Worth the time.
