  • We go to eat at Habana's about every 6 weeks, and we bring friends every time. After dinner, it's fun to walk around and see all the unique shops. Lots to see.  more »

  • A truly unique experience ! I have to admit I was not told anything about this place other than the name and I was expecting a flea market type deal. But low and behold I was pleasantly surprised to find an almost hipster, Art Deco styled place. It’s a great place for shopping, photos, or to just hang out with friends. I went around noon and the place was relatively empty. Parking was easy. I’ve never seen anything quite like it. Would go again should the opportunity arise
  • Out of the 2 sides of this outdoor mall area, I like the LAB the best. Gypsy Den is a classic place. If you haven't gone, check it out. Urban Outfitters is a great place to go shopping for trendy stuff. There's a new vegetarian food place with amazing, delicious selections, even if you're not a vegetarian. And, of course, the coffee shop here is one of the best in the area. Lots of art installations and stuff to look at. Fun to just walk around.
