The shops along the street are full of art and gifts. The best part is they are all local owned small town shops. There is a mix of antiques, art, gifts, food, wine, ice cream and more. Very quaint street to stroll down.

Depending upon what you're shopping for, we didn't find a huge variety of stores. Jewelry and clothing; some painting. Some home wares. Did love the ice cream shop off side street towards the water!

We walked along Butler street Saturday night and several places had live music but we were not looking for it so we did not go into any of those places.

Shops appear to open around 9a and some stay open late (10p). It depends on the shop.
