I walked this stretch yesterday from Allen to the Arroyo, and the tone switches from classy to dodgy and anything in-between from block to block. Nothing special but for New Year's Day.

Old town rocks-- when you walk east, it is a little more typical but tons of great restaurants, coffee shops-cafes....and also lots of good boutique stores....the more traditional chain stores are well east of the main part of Colorado(300 block).
