Shopping Mall
“The buses don't run late at night, and they don't run on Sundays. In our small town buses only come by about every 30 minutes to an hour, so give yourself PLENTY of time to get where you are going, and often it's a 10 minute walk to the nearest stop so make sure you are dressed for the weather.”
