Walk around the Töölönlahti bay. Visit club Storyville, if time in the evening. Gigs start at 22.

Manala is a good place to eat. Handy, too, if you follow MrsHelsinki's advice - it's only a few yards from Storyville. It's also close to the National Museum, Parliament, and a short walk from the Temppeliaukio church in the rock. http://www.botta.fi/en/manala/frontpage/

Check out the downtown Helsinki area. Very walk-able, lots of little shops and restaurants to check-out. Market Square and Hakaniemi Market are there; both can use up an hour or two (food and souvenirs). There's also a nice park just west of Market Square if you need to relax for a bit.
