With the installation of the streetcar line, more student housing apartments, older buildings being converted to condos, new construction of private homes, our downtown scene has changed dramatically.
New restaurants have opened, new shops, and clubs. Along with existing businesses, these add to the appeal of spending time downtown. Let your curiosity bring you downtown and have a look around. Discover the many options now available for dining and entertainment!
Gone are the days/nights when you came downtown to see a show, eat in a favorite restaurant, or visit a gallery and then went home. Weekends are bustling with people everywhere, business is good! Feel free to enjoy your time exploring the new shops, galleries, or just people watch, if that's what you like!
Spend an afternoon wandering the charming neighborhoods with beautiful historic homes, or ride your bike on the wide, tree lined streets surrounding the the business district. Take a ride on the streetcar to the UofA area, or browse the shops in the Mercado San Augustine Market. Stop in for some delicious refreshments at one of the cafes or restaurants beckoning you with appetizing smells and cool drinks in this open air market.
