A great area for just walking through the streets - a neighborhood of unique shops and restaurants. It is usually pleasant walking at a comfortable pace - not totally overwhelmed by visitors. Lots of little surprises to run across.

We walked around this neighborhood a few times and always stopping at different stores or trying different restaurants. It's so beautiful at night and a great place to try night photography. The sidewalks here are very narrow so be careful of bicyclists.
