We were able to park there and either walk or drive to whatever theater or restaurant we wished within just a few minutes.

My friends and I had a wonderful experience here with our friendly and knowledgeable hosts Jack and Karen. All the rooms (four) are lovely and are ensuite, and there's a cozy patio outside.. The breakfasts are delicious. And, the B&B is close enough to downtown and all three theaters to walk. I highly recommend Acrylic Dreams..
