We went to Seaport Village and also the Headquarters at Seaport. It was fun to see the area and buildings. The headquarters used to be the Downtown Police Headquarters.

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.
