One of the city’s most pedestrian-friendly areas, Plaza Midwood is packed with things to do. Take a walk down The Plaza (actually a street) or Thomas Avenue to see some of the neighborhood’s historical homes, pick up some handmade gifts at a local shop, and grab a bite on a patio or rooftop while watching passersby. The community members of this area are as diverse as its retail landscape. You’ll meet new residents packed into apartment buildings, longtime ones sitting on their porches, young families pushing strollers to breweries and working professionals taking advantage of their off hours.
