Really cute area for shopping and dining. Lots of retail therapy, cute items, good prices. Art galleries. Great restaurants. South Congress Cafe is wonderful. Try the sweet potato beignets. You won't be disappointed.

South Congress is a fun street to people watch, check out the various shops, and murals. But was insanely overpriced. Does a pint size mason jar really need to cost $44? More window shopping then anything, but still fun.
