Most of the stops along ARTwalk are in walking distance of each other, but the Trolley also picks up at three locations to zip you around all evening from 5-9, including stops near SubTerra and Recipe, both restaurants which are open for ARTwalk.  With more than 27 participating business, everyone is bound to find something to appreciate.
