While the scale, size and density of each city may vary, they all feature a Downtown that supports a centralized, walkable corridor home to restaurants, retail and other attractions along a contiguous stretch of at least two blocks or more. When people envision vibrant downtowns, these are the types of scenes that generally come to mind. These are places that visitors can find a place to eat, spend time or do something as simple as getting a cup of coffee, breakfast or dinner on weekday and weekend days and nights.
