  • Lots of cute little shops. They have a great popcorn store. You can do a wine tasting at Cherry Republic (while the kids do a soda tasting). There's an amazing little bakery called the Sugar High Bakery. They even had some allergen free treats and some pet treats. We love shopping and looking here.
  • A great location to explore some shops with nothing but foot traffic. Everything from the garden trinkets to wine and random items in-between. Has the entrance for the river cruise. Which I hear is amazing. Check out the Cherry Republic for wine and soda sampling. 5 free, $7 for a glass including a few more samples. Take a stroll through and see what fancies you 😊
