Last year saw a few alternative studio strolls and tours pop up around town. But it’s hard to compete with the cement foundations, breweries and ever-growing number of restaurants that give the River Arts District Studio Stroll that warehouse-y charm and first place in the Best Studio Stroll/Driving Tour category.
