My daughter and I enjoyed the restaurants, the stores, and the Shakespeare on the Square plays. We were pleasantly surprised how much was happening every night.

I loved the water shoots and watching kids playing in them. The farmer's market was good. The restaurants were not to my taste but they were popular with the locals. It is a lovely place to stroll around and I can see why locals would gravitate there.

My friends and I had so much fun walking around. Ate at some neat outdoor restaurants and enjoyed people watching while we ate. That Saturday morning was the Farmers Market and the vendors were amazing. There were also street musicians to enjoy.
