“Decent little area”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

Not a whole lot to see and do, but not a bad little stop. We enjoy walking around and exploring so this was a nice hour walk.

“Underwhelming”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

I know this area has been talked up in several reviews of shopping areas and that'd why we drove to it. After cruising up and down the few blocks and back and forth a few times, we didn't see a whole lot worth finding a parking space for. No chains or big box stores, thank goodness, but nothing that looked mildly interesting or different. Over-rated. But maybe I'm shopped out with all the online options available.

“Beautiful historical area.”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

I liked the closeness of wonderful things to see and do while walking around. They also have a trolley. There are lots of old houses that have been turned into many kinds of gift shops. There are also unique restaurants, the Cerreta chocolate factory, the town square and antique shops. It's worth the trip to see some history and just re-charge your battery in a beautiful place.

“Fun, interesting and very pedestrian friendly”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

Antique shops. good restaurants. Clean and safe and just what you hope to find in a historic district. We made a point to stroll town after dinner each night.

Glendale Glitters was over but the lights were still strung around the town and it was magical.
