Renaissance and Iguana Joes

How close are they to one another? We are thinking of staying one night at the Ren before our week at the SC. we won't have our Jeep until we get to the SC, so I am wondering how far of a walk is it from the Ren to IJ's

Thanks

It's a few blocks, but an easy walk. I guess it depends on if you're staying in the Ren Marina Tower or the Ren Ocean Suites. Marina Tower will only be a few blocks but the Ocean Suites will be a bit farther.

There is a new bar opening up soon almost across the street (2nd level) from Iguana Joes called Local Store. Definitely worth checking out since Iguana Joe's is kind of "touristy".

Thanks Amy. If we end up at the Ren we will surely check out the new place.

Joe's is a nice place for a cool drink and watch the world go by below you...

Agreed - it is touristy, but a great place for people watching, nonetheless.

A couple of photos from Local Store (don't think it's open quite yet though):

RE Local Store: is it in the same location where La Terrazza used to be?
