Great place to shop local with lots of variety. Clothing, gifts, skin care, bookstores, wine and spirit, etc etc. Also a great place to dine at one of kind local restaurants. Frankfort Avenue is casual but classy. FAT Friday every final Friday of the month is totally free to attend and offers music, dining, and shopping specials with special entertainment... More

Participated in our first FAT Friday Trolley Hop last Friday night. What an amazing evening. Great food, great friends, Really cool shops and restaurants. We were wishing we had more hours to hang out and have fun. The best part-Hopping on the trolley to head down the street to our next destination. Will def be back next month

A lot of little shops, but not many fantastic finds. The strip was so long and spread out you couldn't really just park in one spot and walk. I don't feel it was worth the visit.

Lots of neat small specialty shops and restaurants. Nice area for walking to shops and places of interest. Restaurants vary in price from medium to higher prices.

Lot of great restaurants along certain strips of Frankfort Ave. but an even better place to shop and people watch! Make sure you bring comfortable shoes and your appetite when you head to this historic part of town!

Frankfort Avenue has many great restaurants to indulge yourself in. You can park in one area and walk to a variety of restaurants and shopping along the way.

It wasn't the destination I had read it to be, but it was a nice place to venture and explore. Interesting storefronts, homes, and plenty of restaurants along this stretch. Choices range from coffee shops/cafes to 5-star white tablecloth options. It's a long road with lots to look at, but parking was tricky and places to visit were sporadic along... More

There is a lack of good signage and not enough trash cans, thus trash present in many areas. Renovation is spotty and some is of poor quality but there is a lot of potential. More artsy places would help attract tourists, plus more parking.
