Admittedly, we were there on a Saturday evening, but there are a number of restaurants, cool bars, and fun shops to try. There was lots of live music. Street parking was a challenge, but we found a free public lot two blocks away.More

Thank you for the review! For the record, Downtown has two cannabis shops, one upstairs and one that is accessed off an alley. There are more around town but only these two in Downtown. Appreciate you for visiting!
