Lots of cute, fun stores and places to eat. Need to rent a car for Austin, as they don't have Uber. No grocery places, either.

We were told it's a must see. Unfortunately, by the time we got there most stores were closing. There were a few nooks and crannies along the strip that were great for taking phots.
