The gourmet grocery store down the block from my city place is one of my favorite places to have breakfast or just sit and people-watch. There's a little cafe along the street to watch people passing by and another in the back on a canal that leads out to Lake Michigan. Both are nice to spend time in.
And now the new park is finished with benches, a water feature, a dog park, and some lawn expanse for kids to play frisbee.
