In town, you can walk along the harborfront and visit the beach or fort, or head to the car-free shopping street and nearby cathedral. The Fiskebrygga is a cute spot with indoor/outdoor restaurants, a fish market and even boat parking. Outside of town, the zoo and mineral park are two worthy attractions, accessible by bus. Ship's tours will take you to nearby villages, such as Lillesand.
