Love the layout and convince of this marketplace. Great place for a stroll, to grab a snack or to do some gift buying.

This walking marketplace has something for everyone. Boutique stores, chain stores, restaurants and pubs. I love the openness, outdoor seating, and that no one can drive through the area. It always has a feeling of fun and happiness throughout!

You probably are arriving on the 13th and leaving on the 15th. I suggest you plan to spend time downtown. The Christmas lights will be up and the street looks magical. Maybe a cocktail at one place, dinner at another, then... More

We have a dog that we bring downtown during the outdoor eating season, however I am not aware of any eateries where a dog (excepting service dogs, of course) are allowed into the establishment. Sorry
