Well! What a wonderful tribute to the men and women of our country and the world who served to fight off the dictatorships of Germany and Japan! The Museum is a little tricky to get around because the buildings interlock. But there are volunteers to...More

I would highly recommend a visit to the museum. We now have an even greater appreciation for the sacrifices of service men and women. There is so much much information, it is almost overwelming. Plan to spend a few hours taking everything in.

Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district
is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing
assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having
moved in and set up shop throughout the disused
warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much
of the art you'll come across here is local in scope,
ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old
brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and
