I am posting this after reading the parking thread and thinking about some of our previous visits. We have limited experience in the downtown area, but that will change in November when we stay a few nights at the Renaissance Marina Hotel.
Here's my story: We have only been downtown to go to Driftwood and walk around after, the marina to go on a fishing trip, and one day we took some friends to check out the shopping but all we saw were touristy shops with souvenirs that were nothing special and stores we could find at home. On our shopping day, we had the driver drop us off where he thought was a good starting place. I don't think it was that great of a spot.
So here's my question, what brings you downtown? What should we not miss while we are staying there?
**I should add that our current November plans include checking out West Deck and Yemanji and maybe Iguana Joes for a happy hour
