Down Town - Business


Above is the corner of the car park and  the bank building across from the Hampton Inn Hotel and the other corner of the car park. For a view of the Hotel before the remodel CLICK HERE... the old hotel has been there all my life and was called the Pink Palace...Al Capone once slept there.



Sidewalk cafe and inside are all the business listed on the above sign.
below City Auditorium/Chamber of Commerce and Bank Building

This all looks so big and airy compared to our town that is so crowded. It looks beautiful.

Glad to see there is a Hampton Inn right downtown as this chain has become our favorite lodgings. And the downtown does look like it will be a great place to explore. We have no downtown here, so anyplace that does is really exciting!

Your downtown is way, WAY bigger than mine. :))

Although the buildings in your downtown are very beautiful, I'm most impressed with the sunshine and blue skies.

When I visited your other post it looks like there might have been some doubt that the Hampton Hotel would happen. I'm glad to see that beautiful old building has new life. I see some businesses on that sign that I would like to explore.

Beautiful blue skies and buildings, really like the Latte's sign :) my favourite coffee and it should be nice and creamy too.

That Capone really got around. A 3-story villa or castle on a bayou here also repotedly had a Capone history. The house on a hill overlooking the bayou was picturesque but no one bought it and restored it. Gone now and the property dedicated to McMansions.
