There are a ton of fun shops located in this area! We had a blast wandering through them! You can also watch the sea lions off the docks! My favorite part of the whole area! Worth a visit for sure!

Beautiful area. Great food & shops! Local Ocean Seafood has great views. The calamari with roasted fennel and their Crab Po-boy sandwich is insane 😉
