Lovely area to walk around and check out some shops. We had lobster rolls at Roy Moore lobster and enjoyed a few hours in this bustling area. Parking is VERY difficult, though.

This is a fun excursion for window shopping, local arts and crafts, sweet treats and nautical souvenirs. The pewter shop is especially worth visiting and the taffy at The Fudgery is fantastic (especially the chocolate, vanilla and peppermint).

We parked our car in a metered space at the neck. Credit cards are accepted. We walked out onto the rocks. Just a fabulous natural walkway. Great views. Afterwards we walked down the little road and stopped at some of the specialty shops. Some really...More

Weekends should be fine. If you're concerned about weekdays, I would check with the hotel.

Not all will be open, so call ahead or contact the Chamber of Commerce. Some shop owners have seasonal shops down south.
