Otherwise known as Rio, the place has shops, restaurants, bars, music during the summer months; ducks in the big pond and a Starbucks that is fast, friendly and convenient.

“Nice place to go for an evening.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Plenty of things to do. There is a movie theater, tons of restaurants, shops, a lake to walk around, duck boats, make your own pottery, feed the fish, etc. We are local and go here all the time to grab a bite to eat and watch a movie. My brother actually proposed to his wife on the walk around the lake.

It's very clean and safe with lots of options. Highly recommend it. Friday/Saturday nights can get hectic with the parking.

Best Bets: Guapo's Mexican Rest, California Pizza Kitchen, The Cupcake Place (?).
