Grand Ave is such a great place for shopping and dining. The larger retailers have blended in pretty well with the boutiques—something for everyone here. Amazing long-established restaurants and the quick fare all available on this stretch of road. Well worth a weekend visit.

Lovely strolling shopping avenue. Boutiques and a couple of great eateries. The Lexington restaurant reopened this year, such a great reinstatement to the avenue. So many great memories. Grand old days, etc... Definitely worthy of a weekend visit.
