What neighborhoods do you consider the most vibrant? A great place to stroll, browse shops, with arts scene maybe, farmers market, restaurants, cafes, etc?

1) Park Avenue, and

2) The Public Market, which is over a mile and a half from Park and Goodman, but easily accessible by car.

Not really, a tad gritty in a few spots. Some areas have a mix of families, young single people, college students, UofR faculty, empty nesters, etc. Plenty of action right in that area, plus the heart of it is about a half-mile from Park Ave. I lived there some years ago while working in the city and going to school out in Brighton and Henrietta, I could be at school within minutes and not have to take the expressway.

Park Avenue and South Wedge would be the top two choices for the type of neighborhood you are looking for. There is also Neighborhood of The Arts which is considered an extension of the "Park Avenue Area" by many people but really is a neighborhood on it's own IMO.

The south wedge, parts of downtown (east end and st. Paul quarter) and the art district are the three hottest areas at the moment. Park ave is the traditional urban village, a lot of little cafes, resturaunts and boutique stores but the neighborhood kind of quiets down after about 10 pm. There's a few dozen galleries and a ton of artists living and working in NOTA, as for nightlife the st. Paul quarter and the east end are where most of the clubs can be found. Monroe Ave is probably the only neighborhood that's busy all day, all night, many of the stores and resturaunts are open 24/7 and there's a ton of bars between oxford and union along the ave.
