Nice place to walk around

Old Town is a great little place with restaurants, bistros, boutique shops, and NITRO ice cream. Worth the visit when they have the art shows during the winter months.

If you are looking for great food, ambience and people watching in a relaxing atmosphere, this is the place to come to. There are a variety of restaurants and shops. You could just stroll along the walkways and enjoy the ambience.

A fun area to check out for all ages to explore. Better yet, rent a Pedego bike and see more! Fun shops, restaurants and an excellent brewery.

Might go for shopping, not sure it's a walking touristy destination. I probably wouldn't return unless I was interested in one of the restaurants in the area.

Seemed pretty much an upscale outdoor mall. Cute shops, we had a nice lunch. Nothing particularly interesting. I can't imagine spending more than a couple of hours here, including eating a meal.

This area has a Farmers Market on Sundays, lots of restaurants, and boutique shops. It is just that -- and interesting place to walk around, find a restaurant, and eat.
