This small mall is a U-shaped passageway which is lined with more up-market shops and eateries. It is a pleasant stroll on a warm day. It has parking at the rear and some nice seating areas to rest or watch the passing parade.

Le Petite Valentien is our favorite restaurant in the Arcade. Waterstone's is a great gallery. A pleasant place to stroll at anytime.

I don't know what AN refers to? Paseo Nuevo is half way along State St on the left as you walk away from the sea front
