  • We parked here to go to the House of the Seven Gables. When we returned, we wondered what it was so walked around a bit. It turned out to be a mix of sights and placards along the pier that informed of the history of the dock and how some of the original settlers lived. The Customs House was once the source all income for the country. If you wonder around you there’s plenty to see, but I think there is a visitor’s center for those who have time to explore it all.
  • Very scenic and historic area. Great for walks or to sit down and enjoy the views. Museum and restaurants are close by.
