Such a cute and relaxing place to visit. We loved every second of our visit. Couldn't have asked for a better day. This is a must go if you are in the area.

A beautiful little seaport city. It was fin to walk the main street and visit all of the great shops. Lots to see and do.

This is the third time I have visited the seaport and each time I find myself appreciating it more especially as I get older. The guides at the various buildings were very nice and informative.

There are a lot of things to do inside, but you must pay admission and it is expensive. Kind of historic and olde town type of thing revolving around the mariner. There are extra activities inside that will also cost you... More
