Places to stop along the way:
We'll take you by most businesses downtown, and highly encourage you to pause the tour to check them out. If it looks open, pop in and say hello!
Best time of day:
The tour is outdoors -- so noon in July might not be your best bet. Any time you feel like a comfortable stroll, come join us.
We often stop at spots with benches and/or shade. Of course it's always a good idea to bring your own water.
