While we found this neighborhood interesting, we would not move it to the top of our long weekend list. We enjoyed the stroll.


This is an interesting and unique tour. Our guide, Mike shared lots of interesting information about the art and artists, most of whom are local. It’s pretty cool the way the businesses have murals painted on the buildings. Lots of unique displays, some specifically representing the area. A lot of the art is contemporary which really isn’t my taste. But still pretty cool.
