A great outdoor mall full of small shops and restaurants, mustly locals and a few chains such as Columbia, North Face and Paragonia. Great to visit and get souvenirs but little pricy for my opinion.

This is a place where you will for sure find great restaurants (small and large) and shopping, it is really good. Mixture of local and brand name stores, something for everyone's taste and same goes for wide range of ethnic and classic restaurants.
