We sat outside and had an ice cold beer. We walked around through the local shops. Parking was easy. This is a short but fun strip to drive or walk up and down.

Now, first I should say we were there around 11 am. Not much happens in that area around lunchtime. Some cute stores were open but none of the bars, etc., were really "hopping" quite yet. I'm sure it gets more fun as the day progresses. Lots of little stores and an awesome candy shop! That part was fun!
