Even if there’s not many other reasons to visit GardenWalk (see Best Art Gallery and Best Public Art), it’s less of a pain to go to a concert here than when the House of Blues was at Downtown Disney. Combine that with the variety of room sizes and venues, the ability to actually eat a decent meal and drink good beer, and the upgraded auditory and visual experiences, and the new and improved House proves second acts do exist in American life. Oh, and did we mention you can park in the structure right next to it and have it validated on the way out? What a novel concept!
