best place to relax, see Maritime museum and soak up the local culture as well. We were there via cruise ship, we walked around waterfront, enjoyed local families coming to boardwalk and having great time on a sunny day.

We walked the entire length of the boardwalk and found it a lovely way to see both the outline of the City and the ocean. Lots of history, plenty of little tourist shops, local art and lots of restaurants. Nice way to spend an afternoon.

We enjoyed visiting the boardwalk. There were a number of shops and lots of activity occurring. We boarded the Harbor Hopper and the small community train from here. (Public washrooms are available despite being told by the hopper bus that there were none close by.)

While it's true that there are great shops and attractions (discovery center, maritime museum, etc) along the way for those who wander mid-day, I really enjoyed the tranquility and spectacular view of the sunrise at dawn. Only a few joggers along the way, and feeling...More

Great walk, eatery options (must sample/purchase cake from the Rum Runners Cake Factory/good history as well of this establishment), great food and drinks at Bicycle Thief restaurant, lots of fun options as well along the boardwalk...More
