  • This is a quaint area to visit, a well-done renovation and repurposing of former tobacco warehouses.There are several good restaurants, plus a few stores and business offices. A few of the restaurants...  more »
  • This center has an interesting history, and there are some very interesting shops to peruse here. And there is a large shop across the street - don't miss it!  more »

  • Every time we go we find a new place to check out. Tonight was Pine Cone which now carries Maple View Farm ice cream. So good! Also you can park in the lots across the street with validation from one of the restaurants or stores.
  • I actually went to Cloud Brewing. They sell you a wristband then you just go up and get your own beer. They have great food and the service is awesome. I took my family there and my dad who is 86 loved it, I had to cut him off.
  • I attended a jazz concert here in June for the first time. The venue is cozy and the perfect place to shop, some and be entertained. Highly recommended.
  • Cool area. Good restaurants. Great ice cream. Sweet little record store. I want to go back and explore more.
  • You can come here in a weekend to walk around and pick one of the different restaurants in the square, Friday nights are a little busy but enjoyable. Plenty of free parking
