In General:

If there is a “downtown” Gustavus, it is probably the area known as "4 Corners", which is basically the first intersection you get to if you come from the airport or the dock. (see the pic above and notice the Giant BEAR sculpture). There you can find a cafe and art store/ gallery, as well as a tasty restaurant...

Nearby is a liqour store and a picturesque gas station/ gift store down the road, (one of the most photographed gas stations in the United States!)

Just down the road in either direction is the post office, a few general markets, the airport with several charter plane companies, the harbour with a few fishing and touring boats, the K-12 school, the library, a few art galleries, a resale shop, and sometimes another restaurant or two, (maybe open, maybe not)...
