Nice place to shop til you drop. Lots of little shops to check out. Plus there are several places eat and drink for the non-shoppers.

Organic Vegan Chocolate, Terrific food, Fun retro clothes, furniture, decor and goodies. Great shops for gifts for yourself or others and shop owners that make each visitor feel like a special guest. Check it out but wear your walking shoes.

When you're going for a stroll downtown, there's really only one east-west street worth making the connection between Pine and the Promenade and points beyond...that's East 4th. Fun shopping and restaurants. Not as well lit as I'd like at night and a lot of drifters make it feel a bit unsafe after dark.

Great Shopping and Dining area. If you are looking for vintage clothing, jewelry, accessories, antiques or other retro items, go to Retro Row. There are several shops to explore and find that special item you have been wanting. There are also many different food choices and a Great restored Art Theatre. Wish I could have spent more time there.

I think Retro Row has more appeal to young locals than an oldster like me who shudders at the vintage polyester clothes.
I was looking for a larger selection of accessories like jewelry and scarves. Most of the stuff wasn't displayed very well. I was hoping to find a few more older designer labels. With the exception of one store employee, no one seemed very friendly or welcoming or cared if you were there or not. One of the stores with furniture was closed on Monday as was the AIDS thrift store. The others didn't have especially choice pieces.
I did eat at the Social List which I would recommend.

We were staying in the Bluff neighborhood. I enjoyed seeing the well kept Craftsman homes and appreciated the walkability of the neighborhood.
