This is a wonderfully quirky trendy interesting place to shop and eat, however there is just NOT enough parking. It takes away from the experience. If that doesn't bother you, by all means come here and enjoy the eclectic mix of shops and restaurants.

In addition to a Patagonia store, there’s some wonderful restaurants and cafés and little boutique shops. They are really carried out the camp theme In a delightful way.

The show are good and the restaurants are worth trying. It’s an upscale, cool and hipster version of an open air mall. If your are into vegetarian food you can’t miss Native restaurant

No parking, stores are all geared toward the same crowd and restaurants are trendy. Never has parking available so you are reluctant to make a plan for here.
