  • this place gets more and more scuzzy every time i walk down here. i won't walk down here at night anymore.  more »
  • It is a nice walk in a very pretty city. The upper part of State St. is closed off to traffic so restaurants can have lots of outdoor dining. We enjoyed that section.  more »
  • It is nice to have a walk at the streets where there are a lot of shops and restaurants on both sides. Nothing much.  more »
