“European Feel”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

This is a lovely part of town to sit, drink coffee, and watch the world go by. Every time I've been here, I've witnessed one or two wedding parties in the park. There are also street vendors, and usually live musicians. Hold on to your purses and bags (or better yet, carry nothing at all) to avoid pickpockets. The park is lovely, day or night, but I am always more cautious here at night. Better to be on the safe side and visit during the day.

Reviewed September 24, 2012

The buildings were beautiful and well kept. The plantings and fountain were nice. There was a parade with a band going by when we were there.

“old world charm... with wifi!”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

I loved the plaza! was the place to get $$ as well. every night there was some action, such as music or a play. and wifi?? that was unexpected. but it is hard to log on. I was there for the Easter parades and that was quite a treat. the craftsman market is right around the corner too.
