The landward side of Dubai Marina has a 7-mi-long waterside promenade that brings outdoor living to the area. European-style boutiques, cafés, and restaurants—great for daytime browsing—become a see-and-be-seen atmosphere at dusk. Think the passeggiata in Italy or the paseo in Spain. The Dubai Marina community holds regular events such as weekly craft markets on Friday and Saturday mornings throughout the winter (October–April). Further attractions are sure to draw more people when the southern end of Marina Walk is completed near the end of 2008.
