Lots of diners, restaurants and individual shops to explore. There is also an old movie theatre with a few screens. A pleasant way to spend a few hours.

Went to Carytown and had lunch at Weezie’s Kitchen. As we walked around, I noticed all the cool shops and clothing boutiques. Wish I had had more time to go shopping. Will definitely be back so I can do that!
