Behind St. Mary’s Cathedral Basilica is the start of Argyle Street. Although only four blocks long, it is packed with places of interest. These include restaurants, pubs, nightlife, entertainment options and the Grand Parade, a central city plaza. The street dates back to British colonists in 1749. The namesake is Archibald Campbell, 3rd Duke of Argyll. He was a famous Scottish politician and nobleman who lived from 1682 until 1761.
