The Gaslight district has a few shops that offer different and unique items. They also have the usual tourist stores where you can find your sweatshirt or little chachkis. Unfortunately, they have quite a few empty stores too.

Fun shopping and cool restaurants and pubs. A nice eclectic mix of shops and a good variety- not super touristy like done other beach towns.

The shops had a nice range of mid to high end merchandise but appeared to be reasonably priced. There was a great bookstore, many restaurants and a few coffee houses.

Visiting with family from the east coast, they were reminded of the towns of their home. Enjoyed the variety, the cute park, the good coffee & ambiance of the town. Even the post office was nice. Gorgeous flowers on every porch front.
