Even if you're not much of a shopper, a stroll down front street is nice, to see the opera house, state theater, and stop inside Fustini's to sample the different, unique flavors of vinegars and oils. Lots of other fun places to stop as well,...More

I really do enjoy a walk down front street. There are some great shops for men, women and children of all ages. Restaurants, pubs and wine tastings are plentiful. You could spend all day exploring just a few city blocks. Fun for everyone!
