  • Lots of interesting things to look at, if you happen to go by any individual place while it's open. No consistent hours in any of the shops, not alot is open at the same time. And it's not easy to tell what shop is open when. Walk one block too far in any direction and you'll end up in a sketchy area.
  • Day of the Dead celebration, awesome opportunity to tour artist's homes, street food vendors, uniquely unto it's own.
  • Very neat place to visit. Artists open their homes (galleries) and welcome visitors to enter and view/buy their works of art. Some restaurants also located in the village community.
  • Was there at noon Wednesday November 22. Drove all the way to Bradenton and could not find one gallery open. Waste of time
  • I love going on the weekends. I love how the small community opens up there homes to us to view their art and shop's. A most see if vacationing or live here and need something fun to do.
