  • On the day before Thanksgiving, we wandered down to the bayfront to pick up a piece of salmon for the holiday meal. What a fun place! Lots of fun shops, a dispensary, Rogue Ales has a bistro there...

  • This place has such an amazing collection of shops and restaurants, am somewhat disappointed I didn't get to go to all of them. Has something I've never seen anywhere else: a dock surrounded by barking sea lions at all hours of the day. Was insanely cute and fascinating. Many of the buildings also have beautiful murals painted on the sides, all marine life themed. The view of the water, pier, and bridge is stunning from here, and you get to see all of the ships and things coming by less than a stone's throw away
  • Really cool spot...you can also see sea lions on the docks. Loved it! Be aware that things are mostly open on the weekend.
