This is the Main Street providing food, retail and commercial businesses. It is a bit of an eclectic mix on the retail end of things. There are one or two nice women’s clothing shops. Banks, grocery and pharmacy are present. There are some good dining...More

Baker street has shopping and restaurant options for just about everybody. From boutiques to sporting goods and Asian food to steaks, you won't go wrong visiting here. Lots of coffee shops, too!

Parking is horrible. Had to park several blocks away and walk uphill to get to Baker street. I didn't find the shops were anything great. Restaurants we checked out were expensive and not very good service.

It was fun to look in the little shops around town. There are some neat boutiques and coffee shops. We enjoyed it as well as getting lots of excersize.

Several businesses were closed on Sunday. It's definitely not the best day for a full shopping experience.
