You're more than just a little confused.....the cruise ships pay us to stop here. It's called port fees and is paid based on the number of passengers and yes paid even though this is just a tender port with no docking. As for whomever is saying "the word has gotten around" it's strange that the cruise lines and an overwhelming majority of their passengers rate SB as the No. 1 or 2 port for all the coastal cruises even ahead of SF and several MX ports. If you think the homeless problem is bad here check out SF. Easy access, easy transportation, close attractions and decent wine and food along usually good weather seem to be enough for quite a few people.

The KEYT article is certainly upbeat. I hope the renovations accomplish what they are hoping. It seems like a lot of upheaval. Good luck to the stores there.
