  • I went here to scout some photo locations to shoot various parts of the city from an overpass. There’s various spots to consider that overlook the streets and then there’s also the stairs. If your looking for a quick photo opportunity give this place a try, maybe it’s something for you.
  • this is a nice downtown shopping center, but not really a very exciting place on the weekend. The main reason you would come here would be to go to the movies. Most of the decent restaurants have either closed or changed out recently.
