I walked baker street and there are many shops that are interesting. There are 2nd hand ships on Baker too. There are also a lot of restaurants that offer quite a variety. The bakery offered gluten free, vegetarian, and regular food. It was very good.

Sadly, many stores and restaurants were closed on Labor Day. The ones that were opened were interesting. I was surprised at all the graffiti in town and at the park.
