So much to do here. Lots of unique restaurants, shops, galleries, many cuisines, boutiques, fun things to browse or buy. Take a stroll through Goodale Park, it's beautiful, see the quaint re-habbed houses, have a great meal, try some Jeni's ice cream, it's fantastic!

Loved this place! Lots of fun places to visit and eat at. It was also fun to just walk up and down just to see what might be there. There was construction and parking was somewhat difficult to find, but no biggie!
