First Fridays can't be beat - live music, people watching, art, thrift shopping, pinball - but don't underestimate a quiet morning when you have Black Dog all to yourself! I really hope RRSq can endure the changes around it.

I and two of my teenage daughters visited the first Friday event at Railroad Square. Many local artists and their wares were showcased there. Items in the various shops are reasonably priced and the free entertainment, plenty. Each shop had its own, special event. We...More

We had some time after church on Sunday, so stopped by to take a look around. There weren't many people there, but we were then able to get a good parking spot in the shade. It's a lot of outdoor walking around and there weren't...More

I love the shops and the murals here. This is a cultural center, for sure. This is the kind of place you could spend a whole afternoon at, admiring the art and browsing the local shops. Inside the large barn-like building there are some little...More

Came here on a Sunday afternoon in May. I liked “The Other Side” vintage store very much, but other than that, there really wasn’t much. We heard later that the place gets much more lively in the evenings, when it’s a big hangout for younger...More

The railroad square arts center was a fun afternoon stop. They offered some quirky fun artsy shops that we enjoyed strolling thru. The artists located here are quite talented. We even stoped by the rock climbing wall spot but decided to skip it... hopefully we’ll...More

A bit on the eclectic and vintage side, (consignment shops) with very few shops with actual Art work. Has the potential to grow, needs more variety for all ages. Seems to attract college crowds and millennials. Was not overly impressed.

Such an interesting way to spend a Friday evening. It was our First First Friday and we enjoyed ourselves and will be back. Food truck option that we had (Filipino food) was mediocre and flavorless but looking forward to going back and trying others. Cute,...More
