This is a gorgeous part of town, with a lovely boardwalk along the river, and plenty of nice restaurants to choose from. Lovely in the evening as well, with all the lights of the city to see.

Great views alongside the river and dine in one of the numerous restaurants, this is a great spot for a drink and dining with friends or couples. Good variety of restaurants, but not cheap.

The port was clean with live music. We enjoyed looking in the many shops and seeing the friendly people. Lots of good smells from the dining places along the water.
