Two of the most popular spots for shopping and dining are Butler Plaza and The Oaks Mall. The Oaks Mall is only a 15-minute drive or a 25-minute bike ride, and it’s an easy route along NW 8th Avenue. Butler Plaza has dozens of stores including Best Buy, Target, and Trader Joe’s, plus there are a large movie theater and plenty of restaurants.
