“Reminds me of Galena, Il”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

this area reminded me a lot of galena Illinois and all of its specialty shops just on a smaller scale there are lots of nice restaurants to eat there day or nightand we went there to rent something called an Eliptigo from runners flat to travel the many trails and parks adjacent to Main Street it really is great for walking outdoors on a nice day and has an artsy feel with cute boutiques with clothing

“Great little shops!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Just a nice place to visit and so some shopping. Most shop owners are very friendly. Unique items to purchase and prices are reasonable, as well.

“Old fashioned feel with a modern twist.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

When visiting Cedar Falls do not forget to visit downtown Main Street. Back in the 80's this was a dying part of town with bars and rundown buildings. The downtown has since been re-born as a center for shopping, dinning, and entertainment. There is a wide variety of shops, many of which are locally owned. There is plenty to choose from in dining options that include Italian, Sushi, Cajun, and good old American fare food. There is a local coffee house as well as a comedy club and community theatre for entertainment options.

The downtown area is also home to many community activities to draw more and more people downtown. The area is pedestrian friendly and has access points to the area recreation trails.

The only downside is the lack of parking. Most parking is limited to 2 hrs. during the daytime. At night especially on Fridays and Saturdays it may be difficult to find a parking spot. City needs to look into a parking ramp one of these days.

“The Hub for Live Music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

The Hub is a great place to enjoy live music! On Fridays there's an early show from 6-9 which is great for the seasoned crowd.
