South Side has variety galore.
Its "Great American Main Street" – East Carson Street, features 15 blocks of Victorian architecture and was named a National Historic District. Boutiques, restaurants, art galleries, theater and live music venues, are all within walking distance. You can also get a tattoo, dye your hair purple and hoist a yard, making for some of the best people-watching around!
Funky and feisty. Ethnic and historical. Colorful. Full of character (and characters).
