Downtown
As hoppin during the week as it is on the weekends, this bustling area of commerce, cuisine, cocktails and the Capitol is a melting pot of finance and fun, as well as philanthropic conservation. In addition to opportunities for retail therapy, the arts scene is alive and well with galleries and museums at nearly every corner.

Second Street
Officially spanning the length of Second Street between Congress Avenue and San Antonio streets, this area is home to local and national brands, ranging from beauty, body and abode, to restaurants and overnight respites. Don your favorite reusable tote and wear shoes meant for strolling.

Warehouse District
As the name suggests, many of this neighborhood's bars and restaurants are housed in renovated, antique warehouses. The gritty backdrop makes for a vibrant scene that draws a diverse crowd thanks to its range of live entertainment, restaurants, LGBT scene and unique shops.
