Some great restaurants, shopping, stuff like that. The co-op market is incredible! We picked up dinner there and ate it on the patio of our B&B. Quite a nice spot.

Love the Elmwood Village and the highlight is the Elmwood Art Festival at the end of August. The village has lots of charm. Love the unique shops that are privately owned. Great eateries as well.

Some nice shops and places to eat, but the parking is horrible. Not worth going there because of that

Love all this area has to offer. I opened my wallet more thanks than expected in all the unique shops. There is something for everyone. The local toy store was fantastic, nice gift wrapping and unique choices. stopped for coffee and a treat nearby as well.
