Such a cool place to visit. Because of the time of year, there was noone there, I guess the was a plus, because they said, in thr summer, this place is crazy busy.

We visited the wharf in the evening and enjoyed ourselves. The sunset from Crazy Lobster is Worth the trip. Highly recommend for a relaxing evening out. Did not stay for nigh time entertainment, but it looked like a fun place to be. Will definitely add...More

This used to be fun place with a variety of stores; unfortunately, there are a lot of closed stores and very few good restaurants . This is a lovely view of the marina, and should be capitalized upon with attractive shops and restaurants.

Enjoyed this village while staying at Pilot House. Art show, band playing at event center, fine dining at Marlin and ice cream. Bars with bands, people watching (several bachelorette parties over Labor Day Weekend) and ice cream. No time for the zipline.

This area is wonderful for a leisure stroll, light shopping and good eating at about four or five restaurants. There is also a some cool activity's that anyone can do, sky ridding, rope climbing and a gallery for practicing your target shooting.

I didn’t see what the hype was about this place. There was some shops to walk through and some restaurants but I thought this place was a waste of time and found it to be boring.

Went for a walk on the boardwalk and you can just sit down and feel the nice breeze and the calm water

Restaurants, ice cream, boutiques, kid activities, an amphitheater, ample parking, even a real estate office. That not too mention the boardwalk/pier into the bay and view of the marina. What; else? ...

We enjoyed walking around every evening the weather would allow us...walk out to the pier, enjoy the restaurants for a drink or dinner and then take the kids to adventure on the zipline, climbing structure or just walk around many of the joining paths throughout.

This is a public place. You do have to enter the gate, but just tell the guard where you are going and he will point you in the right direction.
