It was 100 degrees when we were there. Happy for a table in the shade honestly. Cute little shopping area.

Thought we might get away from the crowds by walking in here. No such luck. The shops are really no different than on the main street. As for ambiance, I've been to Europe many times and the only resemblance are the cobblestones.

Enter right by the Pancake Pantry, and enjoy a shaded stroll down meandering cobblestone paths as you encounter a wide variety of different types of shops. The sock store is a blast.

Lots of quaint and useful little stores with friendly and eager shopkeepers. My friend loved the hot sauce. I had great help at the shoe store.

We only went into a few shops but there were so many eclectic places to choose from. Would be a great place to knock out Christmas shopping with unique gifts for everyone on your list.

Had to park a ways away and walk, but some cool and unique specialty shops. The prices were definitely set for tourists, but I saw a couple of items that I just had to get as stocking stuffers for Christmas. In the sock shop I...More

We visited the Doughnut Friar, the Toy Store and browsed a few other shops. The fountain is nice and seating is good. One of the few places that have seating with shade. Hard to access because of traffic but worth the stop.

The stores are overpriced, but there are some specialty/cute stores in it. I love the cobblestone path’s and overall feel of the village.

Dog friendly outside area of the shops, but shops are on the small side, not much room to take dog inside.
