Not my favorite place but they do have a lot of shopping including an awesome olive oil shop, clothing boutiques, and more and a ton of restaurants lining the street. You can find every cuisine, even little food trucks servicing sweets, coffee and other snacks....More

We ate at an Italian Restaurant which was very good. It was nice to stroll on Church St, which is closed off to traffic. Lots of shops and restaurants. Can walk to the lake if you are so inclined.

I thought Church Street was a lovely little street to walk down! It is nothing super special (if you have walked down quaint and slightly touristy streets) but I still suggest going. There are some really nice local shops along with typical shops that can...More
