How things have changed and developed! Having great shops available within walking distance is amazing. They have lots of nice little restaurants as well as a the big chains. I feel really comfortable here and it is beautifully done.

An outdoor faux downtown, shopping area with pedestrian malls, fountains and seating. This should be Ardmore's main focal point, but it just falls flat. It seems to have done all the right things as far as physical layout, yet major stores and restaurants just keep...More
