This is a great place to go window shopping strolling in and out of stores in an old time main street atmosphere. Great place for a historical views of time gone by. Also just a block off of the river front.

Very cool place to visit. The old buildings and the shops. Really loved walking around that place. It was cold and still Winter technically so not all the shops were open.

We arrived in the Historic District, first thing you see is the brick streets, and about a mile long of buildings on both sides of the street. Plenty of shops to shop and eating places, art shops, museums.

Each store has their own hours. Most closes at 5:00pm but there are a few that wants the most out of the day and closes at 7:00pm. And of course the mini-brewery is later.
