Very nice selection of shops and we bought a few items. We visited after Labor Day but we were told by local businesses that during the peak season the street parking is rigorously enforced. No issues here but just passing it along.

If you don't bring your car over on the ferry the safe way to to get around is to take the public bus. Public transportation is very safe. Taxi are very expensive. Nancy,s is good to eat
