Great area for restaurants and walking. Our hotel was downtown but I wish we would have stayed here since we came here for a lot of coffee runs and meals. Very clean area, we felt very safe walking with our baby.

The neighborhood is a combination of new/old buildings with the new buildings fitting in nicely. There's an indoor market with bakery goods and sandwiches along with meat/veggies/fruit.

I enjoy seeing how an old industrial/warehouse area is transforming into an area of nice restaurants and pubs, shops, a river walk, and other attractions. The Public Market is a great base point, and has lots of food related eclectic things to offer.
