One of my favorite places to go shopping, or have a drink, or just walk around and window shop. Uptown has a very eclectic and vibrant vibe to it that is very appealing.

Uptown has many restaurants, bars and shops as well as banks and grocery stores. I felt pretty safe whilst there but didn't let my guard down.

This is a fun neighborhood with small shops, restaurants and night life. This area gets quite busy and there is quite a bit of traffic.
