  • Very nice district right off the river walk. Great shopping for art and goods. Three plazas of varying sizes used for wedding receptions (see picture) and other celebrations.
  • This place is absolutely amazing! All of the shops are adorable and tiny, whilst the workers are the most kind and respectful people ever. All of the items here are either organic or handmade.
  • Amazing little place. Love the arts and crafts. Coffee with ice cream at the cafe is great, but too small a portion.
  • Love this area. Had a great time walking around with the family. Had a Big Tex at the cafe...😍
  • Good potential, nice construction and shops. But too expensive, not entertainment or food options, low affluence of people... it could be much better
