We visited the Central West End during a very very cold spell. My wife and I were not able to completely absorb the whole neighborhood. The Christmas decorations were beautiful, the streets were clean, well lit and safe. The choices of restaurants here is amazing! We plan on coming back here in the summer and enjoying everything the neighborhood has to offer. We used the MetroLink as our way of transit downtown. We will not be using it again. It's a convenient distance from the Central West End however, we did not feel safe on the train or waiting for it. We'll take a cab for sure next time. Can't wait to come back! Check out Sub Zero Vodka Bar - AMAZING!
