It gives us great exercise and experience different cultures of food as well! My son loves the long walks we get from there and he's so energetic too.

A lovely reminder! Great note about the "famously hot" weather too. It does make us feel a little better knowing even places like Michigan and New York City are in the upper 90s right now. Thanks for still coming out to enjoy and support.
