This is a great place to go if you are interested in having a fun night out, as there are shops, restaurants, and bars that will occupy your evening and will satisfy everyone in your group.
The restaurants here vary from sushi, to Mexican, Italian, to good old American bar food. There are casual restaurants and more upscale restaurants, and many have outdoor seating which is nice on a warm spring or fall day.
Shops are more localized type retail stores.
Parking is both free and paid, and is fairly abundant.
