It is only about 3 blocks and an easy walk from the Riverwalk. A good selection of restaurants and bars along the way.

Great little area featuring famous sausage from Usinger's. Lots of pubs, bars and restaurants to pick from. Most places have great specials, especially during happy hour. Fun spot to hang out in during the day or night!

Nice walk through 3rd Street. Many nice shops, restaurants and people. It makes you forget your troubles and help to reminisce of the good old days. Of course the prices are of today. Very enjoyable.
