The Arboretum is an easy place to get what you want. I am not a shopper so their easy access to what I want is appreciated. There is shopping, restaurants of all types and places to just enjoy. I visit The Arboretum often.

Nice low key shopping area convenient to the Renaissance hotel. Some chain and local stores as well as a good mix of restaurants. Good walkability and thing to do away from the bustle of downtown.

My granddaughter and I went to Five Guys Burgers and Fries - delicious! A bit later on we stopped at Amy's Ice Cream and customized our own delectable creations. You can choose from a large variety of mix-ins - everything from candy to cookies to fruits. If I close my eyes and focus, I can almost still taste that magical creation, lol! I wouldn't hesitate to make a stop at the Arboretum. You really can't go wrong with the plentiful assortments of shops and eateries. …

Restaurants, bookstore, boutique shopping for men and women, and lots of parking. But, I enjoy spending 15 minutes or so by the pond several hundred yards down the hill from Barnes and Noble. Not particularly a special pond, but a nice, close by, way to get away for a few minutes ...…
