Also, if you do find a spot, it most likely is very tight, especially on a Friday/Saturday night. So drive a car that you don't mind getting banged up... More

There are plenty of fun dive bars, like Dee's Cafe and Bar Eleven and the St. James Place Tavern, but there are also nuisance bars, like Jack's and the Tiki Lounge.

Cute town to walk through. Lots of places to eat or drink. We found great taco place (Doce Taqueria) and a great craft beer bar (Winghart's) in the area. Come midnight lots of college kids and gets pretty crowded.

South Side is fine on the ends, but it rotten in the middle. On one end of Carson Street is the Southside Works, where there is ample parking and several good restaurants. There is also a REI retail store. On the other end of Carson Street is Station Square where, too, there is ample parking and several clean restaurants. You... More

South Side is full of different shops, bars, restaurants and clubs. You can spend a whole day down there, it'd be worth it. Now, be careful when you head down there at night, with the bars and clubs, bad stuff happen.

PISS AND VOMIT EVERYWHERE. Rude 20-30 year old. Tried to eat at 3 place they were either dives, or over priced. Camella pints and plates was the worse. full of drunks and loud music.

The South Side has lots of restaurants and small shops to visit. The traffic is congested and parking is hard to find. The nightlife is interesting and fun.

This is a nice area to walk around and do some shopping done. My husband grew up here, and he likes to take me around and show me the sites when we come back. Lots of restaurants to choose from, too!
