Don’t like to shop but have a camera? This is a great stretch of eclectic shops and restaurants to visit. The variety of stores are available for all tastes and for the camera buff in your life, photo ops abound. Don’t miss it.

Good for vintage shopping with some unusual shops plus thrift stores. But rather down at heel, so I would say only visit if you are in the area; not worth a special trip.
