It’s a enjoyable stroll to walk around the area. Interesting street views. On a Sunday afternoon you can still see lots of activities - street musicians. People sitting in cafes. Very cultured

We had Center Orchestra Gold Circle seats for a Saturday evening show. It was F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C!!!! The story plot, the dancing, singing with a Winter Holidays & Santa experience were excellent. Don't miss this one!!!!
