  • Great fun for a quick day trip from Willamette Valley...we luv the taffy and candy shops...fun gift shops and art. After leaving the candy store...my daughter commented that it reminds her of "what a candy store in heaven would be like!" But the sea lions were our favorite! Loud and stinky though! Grandsons got a real kick outta the lealions on the docks...have fun!
  • Lots of fun little shops to look in. Our favorites were the locally made place and the store called Highway 101. If you go to the bay front side you can watch the sea lions play on the docs.
