Broadway isn't as grand as in its prime, but the mansions along it are still very impressive. Check out the Moody Mansion, the Bishop's Palace, and more.

A must see. There are some beautiful homes on this street along with great statues. If you love history drive down Broadway. Pals all along the way, Moody Mansion, the Bishops Palace and more.

We actually stayed in a property located in the center of Broadway. Alot of traffic and noise but central to visiting all parts of the city. Streets are easy to find and locate via Broadway

Some great buildings displaying great architecture. Some structures quite junky as well. All in all a nice drive and a pleasant part of town. Not much time invested but we did enjoy the drive.

While there are some lovely homes and buildings to see here, a drive down this street balances the nice with the ugly...lots of gas stations, auto shops etc. The traffic mid afternoon does not lend for easy sightseeing here.
