The tourist load was insane on the weekend before Christmas, but we never tire of looking at the bay, and am both impressed and grateful that people from all over the world want to see our area.

Overpriced tourists trap, extremely crowded. Don’t waste your time and money. Gone off the beaten path for better food and merchandise.
