We stumbled around the area mainly taking pictures of the horse statues. Traffic moves slow, which is nice for all pedestrians. Plenty of shops and cafes. Homes nearby are beautiful.

Went downtown with the groomsmen for a small bachelor party. Good time for a small town. A few different bars in walking distance to bar hop. Pool hall and rooftop bar was fun. Memorable weekend with the boys.

There are so many things that go on throughtout the year here on the Downtown Square. There are many restaurants here, lovely wine bars, Bistro's. It is worth going out on the weekends to check out these places.

Quaint little area. Beautiful gazebo, but there was some trash. Lots of restaurants in the vicinity and the valet is nearby. Seeing the horse statues was cool too.
