Great shopping area and one of those places we always take our company. Sometimes it just calls for a trip to Chico's.

Now that we are rated #1 in the world by Fodors Periwinkle Way our gateway has become too crowded with traffic. Avoid midday or between 430 and 630pm as it is bumper to bumper.

This is pretty much the main road for the area. It's like a Las Olas or Las Vegas Strip; it is a straightforward; filled with all sorts of restaurants and gift shops, deli markets, grocery stores, homes and motels/hotels. If your GPS stops working, just get on this road and more than likely you will find your destination. It was quiet and has two lanes. My only concern was driving at night. If it wasn't for the lights coming from the restaurants and the headlights from oncoming cars the road would be pitch black dark. Why are there no street lights? I would strongly discourage anyone to ride their bicycle or go for a late night jog on Periwinkle Way.

There is always something new that I know I can't live without. Local art is some of my favorite. But sitting and enjoying an ice cream cone while window shopping is fun too.
