    Take a stroll on Mill Ave. There's great restaurants, shops, live music and street performers. It's more than just a place for college students to bar crawl.

    If you have any classes after 6:00 PM, park on Mill. It's a lot closer, and it's free. I finally learned this lesson in my senior year.

    This area was centered around the Hayden Flour Mill, known as the oldest industrial site in the Valley. It closed shop in 1997, but there are rumors of plans to redevelop the area for visitors.

    Make sure you walk the entire 4 blocks of Mill during the day to really take in all the great sights and sounds. Nighttime gets a little crowded especially on weekends.

    Went to Casa Sumba. Good concept however they were not ready for the crowd. In the end we walked out of there still hungry. The patio was really nice, but don't expect to eat.
