This is a great afternoon activity. Tons of thrift shops, restaurants, and eclectic shops. Just what we like. We enjoyed the consignment shop. I found a high-end leather jeweled belt that screamed Nashville. In Nashville, I would of paid $200, but I paid $40 here.

Stopped in for a cupcake while strolling the downtown Cedar Falls strip. A great, socially responsible location for the traveler with a sweet tooth. Check it out if you are ever in the area. Very good.

We LOVE, LOVE Cedar Falls Main Street!!! So many things to do and see. Food choices galore! The shops are quaint and homey. We miss going now that our daughter has graduated from UNI!

According the a Google Search, it appears that most of the shops are closed on Sunday. However, food and beverage outlets appear to be in full swing.
