Great area for a night "on the town."

What a great neighborhood for an afternoon/evening out. Great walk-about. Wonderful shops like Fluevog shoes and great dining like Stella's.

There are some good local businesses, but there are far too many chains that somewhat mar the locality.

If you feel like walking around a friendly down to earth neighborhood and getting some good food while you're at it--this is the place. Wear some good walking shoes and come with an empty... More

Uptown is a great place to spend the day or night. There's shopping and also Lake Calhoun is right near by for a walk or swim. Lots of great restaurants with rooftop seating during the summer.
