Cute shops and yummy restaurants. Find a place to park and enjoy a coffee, lunch or dessert. Pop into some of the shops and treat yourself or buy gifts.

Love Grand Avenue; such unique shops. Great spot to go with the gals on a fall afternoon. Shops you don't have anywhere else and also great little cafes. etc. A must do.

Plenty to do for an afternoon or early evening (many shops close at 5 or 6). We visited Penzey's Spices and ate at Salut Bar Americain (French), but there are dozens of chain and independent shops and restaurants to keep you entertained.
