Place to eat
“The stage is very visible from all seats in the theatre, and the sound system is such that you will be sure to hear what's going on (all the actors were miked during the show I attended). The Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre targets a family demographic, so all the shows would be rated G, or maybe slightly PG if there were such ratings for live performances.”

Restaurant
“Absolute best pizza around, especially at 2am after enjoying all the night life downtown. Visit the sky bar to watch the sunset, listen to live bands or DJs, lots of restaurants to choose from earlier in the night. Cobblestone roads with themed restaurants are a definite site to see. In the winter each Friday the main street is blocked off for either Art walk or Music fest. ”
