My wife’s sensory instincts were at high alert. This place has too many things that peaked her interest, spas, boutiques, restaurants, ice cream shops, bakeries... yikes, keep the female alpha shoppers away from here...

Interesting, exciting, enjoyable...IF you can find a place to park. I know they are working on that issue, but at present during the "season" (Oct-May) finding a parking spot is the hardest part of the entire trip. Bring your check book/credit cards!!!

Made a reservation several days in advance with a seating area request. The unapologetic host gave us THE worse table in the room. Food was average. The restaurant needs new management. Never going back.

Always fun to explore the many shops. Good variety. Easy walking, even with little kids. Parking can sometimes be difficult.
