This is such a beautiful area during all seasons. I have been fortunate to see it in 2 seasons - fall and winter. Both don't disappoint. Can't wait to see it in summer to see more water activities.

I would recommend this area to get a hotel room. You can walk or catch the free buses on this street. The free buses will take you north and south, then get the east and west buses. You kind of can see the city, free.

Thoroughly enjoyed this walking tour with Monty. He provided a lot of local color and historical commentary on what turned out to be a private tour. Excellent way to get an overview of the area!
