Lonely Planet review

Occidental Sq, another cobblestone space flanked by unusually handsome Victorian buildings, is one of the nicest places in this area. Visit Glasshouse Studio to see local artists’ impressive works of blown, cast and lamp-worked glass.

If you need a shot of caffeine or a chance to catch your breath, make the pilgrimage to Zeitgeist. This coffeehouse is a local haunt of artists and architects. Along S Jackson St you’ll find an excellent concentration of antique stores and some of the city’s most prestigious galleries.
