Best city "downtown" where is it?

Jump to last reply

During a recent cross country car trip I enjoyed touring the "downtowns" of cities large and small. Mant downtowns were depressing with mostly empty store fronts destroyed by Walmart and other big box retailers (and of course changing retail habits of the local population)

Other places had vital downtowns, not yet destroyed by the strips out side of town.

What cities large and small have the best downtowns?
