This area has lots of nice restaurants, fun bars and venues but the parking in the area is terrible street parking with narrow streets and horribly narrow streets that are one way with little direction on how to get around.

Beautiful backdrop for a professional photo or a selfie. Lots of pretty ducks and geese to take photos of too. Great place to stroll around and enjoy a picnic. Parking is free, too.

The ambience of both inside & outside the Blind Lemon brings with it great music that remains a pleasant memory for all to recall & want to... More

It is an old Hill with old buildings and half decent scenery. Not to mention it was absolutely freezing out side :/
