The street is nice for a quick visit. If you need some touristy stuff this is definitely where to get it. Noticed a few decent looking restaurants but didn't eat.

Ditto...didn't see any golf cart tours, just the horse and carriage tour. Not sure the price on that, but it looked like there was a sign on one of the corners.
