This is interesting and has a few restaurants that have reasonable prices but i would say outside of that there is really nothing here. Now in fairness i was there in off season on a weekday so maybe the place is hopping on the weekend...More

Our hotel was near Market Square, so we spent a fair amount of time here. Nice water views and lots of restaurants. Nice open air area. Relaxing.

The statues around Market Square are a must to see. There is also informative plaques providing history of the city, the fire, and the rebuilding. A great resilience and strength to the city and it comes through when walking along Market Square.
