Fast food and overpriced tourist centered shops. Also not the cleanest place around. Needs a refurbishing.

Let me see, souvenir stores, mcdonald's, panda express and other fast food chains, and not much else. May have difficulty parking when tour buses start to unload passengers, as it is a convenient stop. And because of that, the restaurant may have lines. Can't think...More
