Good place to walk in the evening. The Christmas lights are really nice. The only complaint is the stores close early so if you want to shop it needs to be during daylight hours.

Plenty of places to browse and shop. Lots of unique places especially for Christmas. The hardware store was interesting and had lots of toys from my childhood days.

People in the shops most helpful. Most shops closed early, well before we were finished dinner. I guess during the day is the best time

Most of the fun of shopping in the historic district is getting to see the beauty of the area. The shops were interesting and there was a good variety.

This is a very small high street with a few shops branching off it. It is very quaint as it is not solely for tourists. There are a lot of restaurants on this main street too which is opposite the river. The whole area is...More

All the ones we visited closed at 5:00. After that Front Street is pretty slow -- only restaurants open. But it's a great time to enjoy a walk along the river. Beautiful.
