The entire third ward is an historic district. Cool old architecture. But a hip new vibe complete with some of the best shopping and dining in the city

Great area to walk around - shops, restaurants and bars to try. The architecture and the renovation of these buildings has been well done so far. Unfortunately the shops all close early on Friday and Saturday so didn't really get to do much shopping since we don't eat early.

This was my third trip to the 3rd Ward. Unfortunately it was too cold and windy to walk around, but we enjoyed the Public Market, Colectivo Coffee and the Benelux Cafe. We will return in the spring and do some strolling and shopping.

The parking meters give 10 minutes for a quarter. So, you need six quarters for an hour. Two hours is the limit that you can pay at one time. So, park close if possible because you may have to run back to feed the meter. They do give four minutes for a dime, which is handy if you are just... More

Fun area to walk around and browse. Many fine places to eat and drink- all with their unique style and delicious. Great places for cocktails, breakfast lunch or dinner. There are a variety of shops - most unique. Small, local shops/ business with a couple larger retailers. A fun artsy area to explore.
