We love going downtown, because we like to support our local economy. The shops and restaurants we visit -- we have gotten to know the owners, so when our money is spent downtown, we know who benefits. Also? We live only a mile from downtown, so we walk or ride our bikes. No worries about a designated driver or looking for parking. We chose to live in Medford, so of course we want our money to stay in Medford, not going off to some corporate office of a chain store.
We love supporting local businesses wherever we visit.
Iam on my way next month
Very cool stores.
The shops and bakery make it an appealing destination for people who want to keep small businesses going by enjoying those shops as well
I love to dine at the Inn and to shop at specialty shops.
Will be there in a week. Looks like a great town!
I've never been to Spicewood but my sisters and I will be coming on June 2nd for a sister vacay weekend.

The Downtown area stores are friendlier and have comparable pricing as the bigger stores. The only problem is parking and the distance you may have to walk to do your shopping.
Downtown Salem is getting better and better - love the small businesses!
We haven't been before, but we're looking forward to coming down next week!
Jacksonville is utterly charming! I love browsing Terra Firma and Pickety Place, eating delicious Umi Sushi, and sitting under the amazing wisteria in the Bella Union garden. I always go to the library in that sweet little building, where Lauren the librarian knows me by name (and recommends good books). The Good Bean people are awfully nice, and even the clerks at Umpqua Bank are especially kind and friendly. Best little downtown ever!
