Nice and mysterious old wood houses painted in purple, blue, orange, etc. Nice porches. Lots of trees. Something trendy on Elmwood avenue.

“Go here whenever possible”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

Always something to do on Elmwood. Between shops and restaurants and then when they have the Art Festival it's great! You can spend an afternoon just strollong the shops and having lunch.

“Creative shops”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

The stores there are varied and creative, and restaurants provide a diversity of ethnic victuals. The atmosphere is vibrant. However, one is accosted quite often by strangers asking for change. Overall, the Elmwood Village is homey and comfortable.

This is a funky part of town with loads of interesting shops and restaurants and at the end of August, a wonderful arts and crafts festival.
