  • Charming part of town. Several very good restaurants in the area. Only complaint parking can be tough.  more »
  • Nice to the stroll. As a German very amusing... Much is German, which is not really German. The people are very nice and friendly.

  • In the city for just a few days and had a tone of fun . Went to the Book Loft it has 32 rooms filled with books. Some are super cheap and others are 5-20% off retail.  more »
