We stopped here briefly while we were walking down Commercial Street. It is picturesque, with the cute little artist shops down the wharf and boats/water in the background. But there's really not that much to it.

Compared to Commercial street this place is much less crowded and more relaxing. You can buy there some souvenirs or pictures and book the cruises. It is very nice walk there and watch boats and yachts.

We rode our bikes out on this wharf looking for a lunch place but didn't find anything. There was one restaurant that didn't open until 6:00pm.

It is what it is, a wharf that jets into the harbor and has a lot of boats on it. It's picturesque and has a few artist's shops, and has its own inexpensive parking which is easier than street parking. We parked here all day...More

Yes, located right beside the ferry going to Boston (very end of the pier, farthest away from the land). It was inexpensive, about $4-5 and they allow you to go in and out of your luggage.
