You can spend a nice afternoon here. Check out the old architecture and get a bite to eat or Ice cream. It has a nice feel to it and is family friendly and safe. The lake is just a few blocks away.

Great place to spend a few hours eating in one of the new or old restaurants. St times there’s music for your pleasure. Some very old shops and with the growth some new ones. It’s quiet, clean and safe.

Lake Elsinore has several antique shops on Main street. Some are really good, like this one, others are junk stores. I check this one out periodically for unique items.
