Resembling New York City's South Street Seaport, Boston's Faneuil Hall, Miami's Bayside, and Baltimore's Inner Harbor, this glass-and-steel complex on the north bank of the river serves as the focus of downtown activity. Yes, you may see a mime or two occasionally, and there's a Hooters and a Starbucks, but there's also amazing local live music, good nonchain sushi, and Thai and Mexican restaurants. This complex is not just for tourists -- it's command central for many locals looking for a lively day or night out. There are more than 65 stores here, but shopping is secondary to dining and entertainment. Choose from full-service restaurants, plus an inexpensive food court with indoor and outdoor seating overlooking the river. The Landing hosts numerous special events, from arts festivals to baseball-card shows, plus outdoor rock, blues, country, and jazz concerts on weekends. Call or check the website to find out what's going on during your stay.
