Old Town is a nice place with some good restaurants. Punk Tacos, and Meat barbeque are two of my favorites to visit when there. Both have great food, and good atmosphere. Definitely worth the visit if you get the chance.

Old Town has it all. Funky shoppes, great and varied restaurants, cool bars, and a terrific walkability. It even has a large and wonderfully eclectic pet store. Always something new, and the Festivals are not to be missed.
