Gourmet food lovers can take their pick from sumptuous seafood delicacies at Bernie's River Street or Boar's Head, mouthwatering Caribbean fare at the Cobblestone Conch House or even a juicy steak at the Dockside Seafood Restaurant and Steakhouse. While those languid afternoons away with a hot cup of foamy latte at the Bayou Café, or even top up an exciting day with a few relaxing drinks at Chuck's Bar or Fiddler's Crab House.
And if you're simply looking to take a break and get away from it all, simply head to the waterfront and watch the cargo ships, tug boats and sailing ships chug away in the sun-kissed waters of the river and soak in the verve and enthusiasm that renders this locale as one of the most frequented and popular tourist district in the country.
