This eclectic shopping area will amuse and entertain you for hours..from $1,000 authentic cowboy boots, funky unusual clothing, unusual gifts to fun inexpensive Knick knacks. Something for everyone, along with some uncommon and common culinary cafes.

This is a good place to find good restaurants and specialty stores. It's a bit of an artsy place. Not someplace that I would recommend as a must do.

South Congress has a lot of fun, ecleclic shops and places to grab a snack. It spans for a good while, so you should definitely jump from strip to strip. The candy shop over there is great if you have a sweet tooth, and the...More
