Don't miss the annual La Arcada Christmas Walk! Enjoy strolling carolers, freshly popped popcorn and a visit from Santa at this quaint, character-filled shopping venue that's as good for relaxing as it is for shopping. Marked by a chiming clock, the entrance leads to a variety of shops, restaurants and art galleries. If the folks accompanying you don't want to browse the shops, they can admire La Arcada's landscaping, fountains and many statues. Plus there are plenty of benches where you (and they) can catch your breath before moving on. And did we mention the turtle pond? Yes, there's a turtle pond. Located in the heart of downtown, this is one Christmas shopping destination you don't want to miss.
