We walked through the wonderfully fresh Farmer's Market. The veggies & fruit purchased was so fresh and delicious. Everyone at each farm stand was friendly. The whipped honey purchased was delicious.

Finally! A quaint bustling town without one chain store! A delightful mashup of fiber stores, pet shops, and gift stores that are not too touristy and not too upscale that you think you can't even walk in the shop! Small farmers market in the square on Saturdays during the summer. One of my favorite stops!

Lots of good restaurants and shopping. Love the free public parking. The smoke and marijuana shops were a little distracting.

There are some great restaurants and shops along here. The streets are wide and open. Architecture is very interesting and well maintained. Art and sculpture everywhere! The art is a wonderful feature which really adds to the charm of the city!

We were told to eat at the Mason Jar. Do so! You won't be disappointed! Wander around the old town, read the plaques on the wall, Eat some excellent ice-cream, have fun!

The town has really gone down from 20 years ago when I came here. The stores aren't very tourist friendly and not much to do.

Ok. Looks like it is trying to make a comeback as an artist mecca but still has a way to gi. But I always enjoy walking around historical buildings.
