By day or night this is a great place to walk around, see a movie and get something to eat. But it's a place that is safer in the day in my opinion. Lots of security and a great Latin flavor and smell. Cigars, restaurants,...More

Cool place to walk and catch a bite. Plenty of restaurants to satisfy just about anyone's appetite. All the folks we interacted with were friendly. Parking is curbside and some parking lots in close proximity.
