Nice walk

Nice downtown to take a walk through. Little shops to stop in see some neat things for sale. Feels like your in an old time small town.

Set close to the river, with great walking paths along the river. They have a classic auto show, and vendors, every other Saturday from about Memorial Day through the first weekend in October. This was a free event. We spent the evening viewing very cool cars, shopping the many stores that stayed open late, listening to the outdoor music, and... More

We go to Hastings for the Classic car event on Saturday nights. all the stores are open and they say thanks for coming down, even if you don't buy anything. The restaurants we have eaten at are friendly and we have never had a bad meal. the antique stores are so much fun and not over priced.

Many beautiful old historic buildings, as well as lots of charming little shops and a beautiful overlook of the Mississippi River and the new riverside development and pavilion

Downtown Hastings puts on a great car show on the 2nd and 4th Saturday's of the months from May til October They have street vendors and the local downtown restaurants run specials such as The Onion Grille, The American Legion and The Depot. We go quite a few weekends in the summer.

Although only a few blocks long, the Historic Downtown of Hastings is a great place to poke around. It has some great antique stores and restaurants. The frontage street has been recently worked on, so there is easy parking.

My wife and I go down here quite often. It's a great place for sights as wells as food and antique shops. Nice family atmosphere. Great place to see the Hastings car show all summer long

This little square of restored architecture was pretty quiet on a Saturday night. Local owned businesses; not sure opening and closing times. The street construction did not make it pedestrian friendly.
