Living on the Downtown Mall is like living along New York’s Madison Avenue minus the automobiles and only 8 blocks long. It is one of the longest pedestrian malls in America.

Once known as Main Street, its 8 blocks were converted into a pedestrian mall in 1976.

Today both sides of the Downtown Mall are lined with 110 retail stores and 21 restaurants/outdoor cafes.
