  • So very much to see. Always take guests visiting us to see the art, antiques, boutiques. Don't always find things, but fun to look anyway. 
  • Cute shops, but most of them had the same tacky souveniers. A lot of the shops weren't even open the day we were there. 
  • We shopped and are nearby while here. Picture-taking is so great in a village attractive to artisans.

  • Great little area and great festivals. Attended Dia De Los Muertos festival and had a great time with the family. Very clean and plenty of space. Great festival food.
  • I loved just walking around this little village. Next time though I will come without my kids. Lol. I wanted to view each shop and admire the art, but the kids weren't very interested. Can't wait to come back and see everything!
  • Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Warm to walk around on a hot summer's day but the fountains are relaxing and there are lovely little shops to duck into and cool off in, while browsing art or stained glass or screenprinted fabric or some other delightful craft. A beautiful quite little maze of shops and courtyards easily accessible on street level or from the Riverwalk. Definitely visit.
  • It's beautiful! It's atmosphere is culturally rich! It's fun, the shops are nice! Be a tourist in your own city and visit! Close to the River Walk and River Center Mall!
  • A great mix of shops and art galleries. East walk from the river walk. Main entrance has stairs. Parking is where you can find it around the area. Best option is park for Riverwalk then walk over
