In addition to offering a great weekend shopping excursion, the pedestrian-friendly community is a perfect place to soak in the great outdoors. The town caters to tourists, so you'll find plenty of modern-day luxuries for your weekend city-escape. Last but not least, you won't go hungry in this community packed with a diverse selection of gourmet and casual dining.
