At the southern end of the downtown area is North Blvd. The extra wide boulavard has a massive neutral ground with a walking path covered by stately old oak trees and crepe myrtle. Meander the path and check out several of the city's architectual gems - from Renaissance Eclecticism (City Club) to Gothic Revival (Old Capitol) to Georgian (Old Governor's Mansion). There are many shops and restaurants, too.

Directions: From I-110 to the river at the south end of the financial district.
