Mill Street Historic District is a lovely place to walk on a clear, sunny day. You can admire the colorful Victorian houses, and the magnificent trees that surround them. On the 1300 block of Mill Street you will find the prettiest sights, including rows of walnut trees catching the light. Walk the steep inclines of Peach Street, Johnson Ave, Phillips Lane, and Toro Street- here you are on slopes above the freeway, with impressive views of the volcanic peaks/morros- Cerro San Luis, Bishop Peak. It is beautiful! There are eucalyptus trees, canary palms, cedar trees, redwoods. Some spots are very barren and other spots have trees. Some have impressive houses with turrets and decorative details, and others are tiny craftsman houses. It is quite a mix. Check out Palm Street as well. And then end your walk on Monterey Street at a coffee shop full of students and young professionals, such as Field Day Coffee, an open-air spot with pretty decor in an old car mechanic shop, or Skippers Brew, which has a few picnic tables outside.
