Little clusters of restaurants and retailers give villages within the town their own distinct flavors. Antique shoppers can visit Mountain Brook Village, while English Village suits the art gallery and coffee shop set. Crestline Village caters to a younger crowd with toy stores, candy shops and ice cream parlors. Residents can then head home and kick back in stately manors on multi-acre lots.
