Uptown offers so much and is so easy to get around. There are wonderful restaurant, great speciality shops, as well as well known shops. My acupuncturist, bank, bookstore, spice shop, and kitchen shop are all within a few blocks.

Our son lives in this area and we enjoy wandering around when visiting. There are some good restaurants and shops and the lakefront is not too far away. Overall, there is a good, youthful vibe - the only downside is construction in the area and...More
