We enjoyed walking up and down the streets and went into several incredibly unique galleries. One had numerous prints from Dali for sale.

Lovely place to stroll down and look in at the art galleries, some great paintings and sculptures, Thursday evening is the night walk when all the galleries stay open late and the place is buzzing. If you like the arts then you will love this.

It is still enjoyable to walk down Main Street and browse the art shops big and small and look at the bronzes along the street. Shops vary in quality but it is worth a stroll on Main Street or Fifth Street up the road.

We had expected a laid back old town feel to the shops but it was mainly high end art. Very expensive not for the tourist probably more for the rich locals. The shop keepers were very friendly tho and encouraged us to look around.

Hard to believe that many art galleries can actually stay in business:) It's very clean, safe, pretty area. We enjoyed popping into a few shops. Only thing I bought was an overpriced Christmas decoration.

There is an art walk along Main on Thursday nights (not so in the hotter summer months). Most of the galleries are open there, in addition to restaurants and bars.
