  • Unique tourist shops,etc. Limited parking, I’d advise going during the week rather than the weekend if possible.  more »
  • Want to visit a place with beautiful yards and homes - makes a great stroll and is easily accessible with a regular ferry from Newport Beach. @Lovethestroll!  more »

  • Very crowded but completely charming. There is a sidewalk around the entire perimeter which makes a great bayside stroll.
  • A gem
