Lots of students and many shops to go through. Also places to eat. Biggest drawback is parking. I am not good trying to get in very tight spots on the street. Also parking fees are done by credit card which I had to ask a local how to do that. I am sure there are parking lots but if you... More

The last time we were here it was graduation weekend and the street was crazy with students and their families, it was still a great day.

As parents of incoming students, it was a good place to walk around after visiting the central campus and cutting through the diag to get to the M-store for some Go-Blue souvenirs. Many variety of shops not just for college students, but for "grown ups" also. We tried Slurping Turtle for lunch and Afternoon Delight for breakfast/brunch on the day... More

Not too shabby for a college town. A nice variety of restaurants pubs and shops. Some of the pricing is awfully high, for a student's budget.
