Authentic international cuisine. Cannot beat the prices. They do close early. 6pm, I believe. So they are best for lunch or a very early dinner.

Aroma has a terrific brunch, and it is a 10 minute walk from the house (max). They offer a table of coffee, tea and baked goods to get you started.

The bar is also a nice destination with quality cocktails, wine and beer.

Parks & Nature

Walk out on the break wall from this park and pass under the peace bridge, getting a unique view of the city. Or ride bikes, run or walk in the other direction on the bike path out to Unity Island. It is always cooler here in the summer, and recent renovations note the tie to the history of the Underground Railroad.
