Mall with nicer restaurants. A bit interesting given its police headquarters history. Better than seaport village next door.

There are several unique boutique/clothing/gift shops as well as three major restaurants: Seasons 52, Puestos and Cheesecake Factory. They have an amazing gelato/sorbetto shop and Starbucks...More

They have a genuine jail house here with a wall of booking photos and a few of the cells are actually open so kids can walk around them: great photo opportunity. It's clearly marked: right opposite the Puesto Mexican restaurant

Check if your visit coincides with a Salsa night in the courtyard at the Seaport Headquarters: scores of locals and tourists, bouncing or gliding, depending on their proficiency, to the music of a terrific live 7 piece band. Great atmosphere.
