  • Nice little gathering of shops. It was frigid out when we walked through so we popped in most places just to warm up. The whole area of shops and layout is fun and inviting. We ended up buying stuff mostly because the employees everywhere we're so friendly. Definitely check it out!
  • Cute for local weekend or tourist type shopping. Nevertheless, I love the food... you have cupcakes and crepes... Chocolate and hot chocolate... pastries! There is a spa, a biker shop, which was amazing! The staff in the biker shop was friendly and funny. In fact, she gave tips on great places to go; such as, a mirror maze next door to her shop, which was so much fun! Me and my goddaughter were lost in it for a little while.
  • If you are out and about and ever able to visit this place then I know you won't be unhappy with your decision. This place is just beautiful to walk around and have lots of different shops and also the cupcake place that was on tv for being the best...some places offer samples of wine and food for free. Lovely place is really all I can say for the family. Take the kids, your dogs, your strollers and enjoy the shop's. Some stores allow pets in and some do not.
  • Fun little random shops, fantastic around the holidays but also any other time. Great gifts and trinkets. The fairy garden store is the cutest ever. Also the cupcake/cake store is a dream come true.
  • Oh my goodness! This shopping center is adorable! The shops all look like a little bavarian town and are themed mostly to that as well. There's a ton if great gift stores and places to eat. Most are reasonably priced except for the beef jerky shop!
