    West End
    A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
    verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
    Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
    paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and

    Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
    take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
