At first glance it actually appears there is more to do here than there actually is. A lot of cheesy bars full of tight-shirt bros and drunk girls. Expensive food that isn't particularly good. Shops that are downmarket in every aspect but price. There are definitely some gems - kitchen table restaurant is amazing and Jackson St bookstore is one... More

Stay in one of the local hotels. If you are there on Saturday morning be sure to wander though the Farmer's Market. Don't miss Hollywood Candy - so much more than a candy shop! It has an old-time soda fountain, a movie theater (free!) playing classics, an arcade, and more candy than you knew existed. Loads of restaurants to fit... More

It was not what I expected. We walked around several of the blocks and it was mostly restraunts and bars. Good I suppose if you are there to party. Shops were artsy in nature, again not my thing.

There are many great restaurants where one can sit outside eat and watch the world go by. There are a number of quaint clothing and jewelry shops. There's... More

Excellent experience. There is so much to do here. A little something for everyone! The Old Market passage was beautiful. The Farmers Market is exceptional and I would recommend it to anyone!

Old Market started to become a refreshing change to mall shopping . Shops that were there are the same ones 15 years later no changes . Larger bars , larger shops make walking a priority over small shop quaintness .In other words go to the Bars in the market or drive to the Mall.

There are tons of shops, restaurants and bars. You can pretty much fine any cuisine you want in walking distance.

There is something for everyone. Worth spending some time there, especially when there is a Farmers Market on.
