Great Variety of Shops

A wide variety of shops, art galleries, and restaurants. There are a couple of nice parks for a break. Easy walk to the harbor.

This is a great shopping and restaurant district in the summer. Winter, not so great as many places are closed until the summer season starts.

This is THE street fro all your shopping needs. It includes all the shops that one loves to visit while on vacation. Offers plenty of great local shops, gifts, art, food, ice cream and all the stuff a family, kids, couple would enjoy.

My husband and I visited Butler Street in November. We walked around the street searching for shops to visit. Unfortunately, almost all of them were closed - even ones that said they would be open! It looks like a nice spot to visit based on what was inside the windows, though.

This small bayside village has a little bit for everyone for every budget. Since it was off season some of the shops were closed for the season. But those that were, were very friendly and geared toward service. Each shop had separate brands of clothing lines so not to complete with each other and to offer something different. Great shops,...

Only a couple blocks long, Butler street is crammed with a wide diversity of shops from clothing to specialties to cooking/kitchen supplies, and also includes a couple of area winery outlet shops too. Great assortment of shops and bars, with a few restaurant gems right off the strip as well, like Bowdies Chophouse - you won't be disappointed!
