There are a number of excellent restaurants here, which have a nice view of the ocean. The food is typical New England style sea food, which is what you would expect from a tourist spot, yes? Parking is limited.

Breath taking photo op. Perkins Cove is exactly what you think of when you think costal New England. Old fashioned bridge, beautiful boats, restaurants, shops, it has it all. Not to mention charters for coastal tours. Don't miss it.

I don't know as I don't go in-season. The trolley doesn't run during the week when we're there.
