The pathway is a relaxing way to walk from the inner harbor to the Fisherman’s Wharf. You have great views of the inner and outer harbor, the stunning sunset over the mountains, as well as the private houseboats docked along the waterfront. The little water...More

Historical path where everything happens. During the weekend there are music presentations all over the place. It can be crowded but it does not take the beauty of the place.

Worth the time it will take. Water on one side and beautiful gardens on the other side. The trail winds around the inlet to the downtown area.

It is really nice to just stroll along here and people watch and see the views all around and even take in the local Art work. We had our first date on this pathway and it was really nice in the evening.
