Grand Avenue is an inviting and relaxing area to visit. This area has unique shops and great restaurants. The only negative is that parking spots can be very difficult to find unless you arrive before 11:00 on most days.

A little bit of everything within walking distance. I like going on a nice sunny day, eating out on Bill’s patio, enjoying.

Grand Ave is such a great place for shopping and dining. The larger retailers have blended in pretty well with the boutiques—something for everyone here. Amazing long-established restaurants and the quick fare all available on this stretch of road. Well worth a weekend visit.

Lovely strolling shopping avenue. Boutiques and a couple of great eateries. The Lexington restaurant reopened this year, such a great reinstatement to the avenue. So many great memories. Grand old days, etc... Definitely worthy of a weekend visit.
