Things To Do

A 30-year tradition, the ArtWalk process is simple; proceed at your own pace, wander into galleries that capture your fancy, stroll around a delightful area punctuated by dramatic statues, bubbling fountains, tree-covered courtyards, famed restaurants and more. Horse-drawn carriage rides and trolley rides are often available from plentiful free parking areas nearby.

Looking for unique vintage clothes or hand-made crafts? Look no further than rows and rows of vendors, just don’t get lost! Or if you do, make sure you have a Bloody Mary with you for sustenance.
