Very disappointed! No one was around, very little to see except restaurants. Visited the cabin..so, so, have seen better. Questioned if this was really Londons home. Wouldn't go back. Maybe they have things going on at night. Really dead in the day time

Nice easy go waterfront with shopping and restaurants. Great way to while away an hour or two just watching the boats on the water. Many restaurants to chose from.

Nice place to go on an evening walk. This is also just a great place to just relax and people watch.

Good waterfront spot with a great variety of restaurants and activity spots. Nice walk on the weekends, especially when they have the Jack of All Trades show the second Saturday of the month. Lots of goodies and crafts for sale.

The views have not changed from when it open but most of the buildings are empty. Lots of space to walk but little to do on a Sunday morning. Lunch was expensive.

My two cents worth, though this doesn't directly address your question. Check if you could book a room with a water view at the Waterfront Hotel with a heated outdoor salt water pool, a fireplace in the lobby. A decent... More

Yes - There are a couple of parking structures and lots. Parking in the structure closest to the ferry is validated if you take the ferry.
