“Short Stop only!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

Reeder's Alley was charming but very small and very little to do. Liked the small cabin at the entrance and enjoyed the idea of the Chinese grocers operating their store a century and a half ago but not much time required here for a visit. Interesting short stroll only.

“Quiet Stroll”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

It was Memorial weekend when we were in Helena, and there wasn't much action going on. Read some of the plaques posted in some areas and it was gorgeous day, but would recommend visiting this area on a busier day.

It has been restored beautifully. It is very informative and is nice to see historic buildings not torn down for progress.

“Not too exciting or too interesting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

It might be a pleasant walk through this area, but what it has to offer is rather mild. There are a few historic buildings and a few informative signs to read. Most of the buildings are now housing various business offices, so it feels a little like a business center. I did not notice any shops. There is one restaurant there which looked like it might be interesting to try.
