This is a pleasant little park, but nothing extraordinary. On the Main Street, its a nice place to sit and relax after some crazy shopping.

I walk in the park daily. During the winter months it closes at 5 p.m. The weather here it's nice for outdoor activities even during most of the winter. On colder days the bonus is fewer homeless people. If you are the nervous type then...More

This is an old grave yard located in a small town that offers a visitor an opportunity to see where one of America’s great frontiersman is buried beside his third wife. Be sure to take a few minutes to visit if you enjoy history.

This park is super big and has lots of big trees so it could be spectacular. There is a nice little walking path. It is really run down and poorly maintained and just kind of sad. There is a playground, but it's over rocks so...More

No. They will sell beverages there and won't allow you to bring your own to guarantee that you will pay crazy prices for water even. The lawn chair will be handy unless they over pack the event.
