Lovely town with many shops and food options. The boardwalk by the lake takes advantage of the view and is beautifully landscaped with native plants and trees. The are different areas to sit and enjoy the views.

We spent all three days at Granlibakken. There are pools, spas, tennis, zip lines and the greatest food in the area. They are definitely a hard act to follow.
