Worth a visit to see a nicely restored street. The tram travels through adding charm and the old style building with colour are classy. Not so much a place for bargains, more worth a look.

A very quirky street, however nothing hugely inspiring when compared with other similar streets in Hawkes Bay and some overseas. Quite quaint though and an interesting mixture of shops.

This is a fun area to visit at dinner time. Lots of restaurants, bars and dessert spots with outdoor areas for people watching.

We were informed the developer of this street modeled it after Santa Barbara California. It's a very charming street with restaurants and shops.

Whatever it once was, it's now just a row of gaily painted shops on the tourist tram route, and if you're walking in the town. Don't go out of your way to see this.
