A small area to view if you're already here. It was nice to show the kids the whale bones. :) We wouldn't have gone if we hadn't already been in the area.

I was not aware that the start of the Civil War helped to end whaling in the Pacific. Take time to tour and read the history and all the photos and artifacts from the whaling era.

The village is really a shop mall but the museum was informative and small but worth the visit with good places to eat on the beach

Nice place to shop. In the past, the stores seemed to be very end shopping, but now they have a variety of price range stores. They have a huge ABC Store that has something for everyone.

You get yourself a ticket and you get 1 hour free, but if you buy something in one of the stores, get your ticket validated and get another 3 hour parking free for a total of 4 hours.
