We were so surprised to discover the "Friday Family Night on Front Street." What a blast! The street is closed to traffic and the party begins. There's street vendors selling food, merchants advertising their wares, musicians, dancing and the display of antique auto's were just so much fun. No parking meter requirements after 6:00PM.

Downtown TC is great anytime but Friday nights in August are unforgettable. They close off the street and have an amazing variety of street performers, vendors, and live entertainment. This is something we REALLY enjoy! During other times there's always something going on. The shopping along Front St is full of variety and you're sure to find something you like... More

Ever since moving here 12 years ago I have always raved about our Front Street. It is and has been extremely vital despite some store changes now and then.

We come up at least 8 times a year….still love it here! Cute shops, from local products to one of a kind…art galleries, sweets, coffee shops, boutiques, jewelry….AND great restaurants! It is a wonderful vacation destination with close proximity to the beautiful Mission Peninsula, and vineyards, etc etc. Highly recommend!

Tons of restaurants, little shops, including two nice book stores. Great coffee shops. The newest thing I saw this visit was a food truck court on the east end of Front Street.

TC has such a cute downtown! There are many places to sample and buy cherry products as well as some woman's boutiques and ice cream shoppes. There are some great restaurants downtown as well.
