Lots of tourist shops, but also some fine clothing stores and other interesting shops, places to eat lobster, pretty historic area. Lots of tours of the bay and city are available. Easy to access many services.

Not sure what I was expecting but we found this area to be quite dull and not all that fun to walk around. There were a lot of sketchy people and while we did pop into a few shops we just weren't all that impressed.

This area is a good place to get a feel for the town. There are cobbled streets, old buildings, a working port, wharves and a myriad of shops and restaurants - something for everyone.

We had a great time in Old Port, our hotel was just 2 blocks away from the docks and we could walk almost everywhere we wanted to go. We highly recommend taking the reasonably priced Discovery Land and Sea Tours--the employees are friendly, helpful, and...More

Awesome town. Brick streets, easy to get around, great mix of boutiques and name brand shops as well as coffee shops, drinking establishments and eateries. A great way to spend an afternoon.

Every storefront looks interesting and you want to go in, the only downside-can get hard to choose. People out & about all nights of the week

EVO on Fore St was excellent and fun, small plates, eclectic food, good beer and wine, little pricey but worth it. Central Provisions on Fore St also was a good one and Andy's down on Commercial St.
