Dickson Street is a great spot for walking - Go out of the Cosmopolitan, take a right, walk about 3 blocks and there is Dickson Street. Take a left - it has many shops, restaurants (all different kinds - Mexican, sushi, coffee shops, brew pub) - many with tables outside on the street, Dickson Street Book Shop is there, Walton Arts Center has a nice gallery, post office, drug store, art galleries.
