We rented bikes and rode along the docks. If the weather is good, great people watching. Most of it is paved so good for bike riding.

Quaint little harbor with sailboats & other leisure boats. There are some picturesque buildings along the harbor that make it worth a stroll.

We saw a huge barge one morning and by the afternoon is was gone. There didn't seem to be a way out until we looked closer and saw the channel leading into the bay. The docks are close to the city museum and some apartments.

Great spot to sit and take it all in with the busy city and the boats coming and going you can spend a bit of time just enjoying life passing you by here.

How in the world do you rate docks? We walked by, saw boats, saw water, smelled dead fish, and walked on. I suppose somewhere in the world there is an area of spectacular docks worth a long drive to see. I've seen docks all over...More

We walked around the docks here and found them like all other dock areas. There was a ferry in so must be where they leave from. There were business & personal boats docked here. Water was dirty, lots of trash floating around.
