on May. 10, 2010 by

The historic distillery district is an absolute must-see during a hot summer day, it has amazing patios and cute little shops in early 1900 buildings.

A trip to the Distillery Historic District was quite interesting but a bit boring at the same time.

The buildings gave a great ancient city feel but unfortunately besides that there wasn't much to see or explore. It may have been due to visiting the Distillery District in spring, maybe the place booms during summer.
