Neighborhoods

Areas of the city with a plethora of walkable places to go and see, including coffee, shopping, nightlife, and dining.
Short for "Lower Downtown", this area is very walkable with many shops, bars, and restaurants within red brick building dating back to the city's early days. Button Vendome and Rioja are a couple of my favorites.

Formerly a very industrial area, the neighborhood maintains a certain grit with repurposed and renovated warehouses, now home to breweries, cideries, restaurants, and cafes. The annual CRUSH street at festival brings new murals from artists, lending true character and creativity to the otherwise mundane walls.
