  • A nice place to visit, some good restaurants, but shopping is very limited. We noticed a couple empty store fronts and one recent closed establishment. 
  • We always find some unique articles here at one store or another. We come at least once a year to shop. 
  • The outside of the buildings are beautifully refurbished. This is a great place to sit and have a cool drink. The stores we're a fit for me but window shopping is fun.

  • The area is wonderful for walking a,d window shopping. Beautifully restored area. The few shops that are left there are well worth the visit. It seems to have been a casualty of urban sprawl. I hope the management company can do something to keep the stores they have and attract new ones. So few stores are left , what a shame!
  • Cute little area with boutique shopping and restaurants. Clouds is a great restaurant! Super yummy food.
  • Nice place for music in the Summer, shops, CDs, gifts. Fun for out of town guests.
  • The cozy atmosphere of the square is always nice to have.
  • The stores at BrightLeaf are wonderful, however, the management are vultures. They recently changed a parking lot that had been available for public parking for more than 20 years to a permit only lot. There is a sign, but no one there to help the locals during the transition. Two parking enforcement people were quick to tell me where I could get my car that they called to get towed. But why couldn't they have given me a warning when I pulled in. The towing company charges $220 to get your vehicle back. Just disgusting behavior! #boycott BrightLeaf
