We drove through trying to find a parking place. This is around 3pm on a Thursday. We passed the restaurant where we wanted to eat & kept going BECAUSE WE COULDN'T PARK!!! There were some places to..... more »
The place is a bit outdated but may be that is why you need to visit it. There are a lot of places to it local see food and watch the boats coming and going and unloading their harvest. more »
Good place to buy fresh fish but it's rather expensive and they don't have a lot of those fish available for purchase more »
A REAL WORKING SEAFOOD PORT it is a great stop and the seal lions are awesome. Make it a lunch stop on your travels down the coast and take the kids .. way cheaper than the sea lion caves and really fun to watch, hear, and smell the sea lions
The Bayfront is always a nice little place to walk and explore. It seems to always be a busy place. Watching the Sea Lions never gets old. The water is always a peaceful place to be!
This place can be overcrowded when busy. It is fun to visit, with a lot of shop variety, but it can be difficult parking wise. Since it has several working seafood processors it can be a challenge for those that are sensitive to smells. If you are patient and relaxed you can have a great time.
Lots of cool shops. The sea lions in the docks below were a highlight. Go to Mo's for the best clam chowder I've ever had!
Very fun. A lot of places are open 24/7. Everywhere we went it was good food. We will come back again.
