bring entire family for this reenactment of "old west" living. all the buildings are open for business, you can even stop by in the old jail house. take a ridge in old horse carriage and experience all old west adventures.

That is no problem. We always brig a cooler with food & drinks. There are plenty of picnic tables in a shady area. Just bring something to cover the table.
