There is a fund of history in the downtown area. I loved the informative plaques on the buildings. There has been a determined effort to maintain the older buildings. We spent about an hour just wandering around

The buildings all seem to be historic, however, the shops are very up-to-date. From sushi to tacos, new clothing to vintage, haircuts to eyebrow threading, this place has it all!

It was an interesting concept, and it brings a lot of Phoenix tourists to town, so it is a financial/fun/frustrating thing. Many residents complained about the streets being blocked off as we wandered around town. The downtown area needs a reboot! Not that many stores that carry items of interest to tourists. How about a Native American Gallery bigger than... More

Arrived to the historic downtown area about 7pm, and walked the 4 blocks that make up the downtown area. Had dinner at Bigfoot BBQ. Went out on the street around 9:45 to watch the Giant Pine Cone drop off the Weatherford hotel at 10pm (East coast version). It was worth the effort to ring in the new year in a... More

Nice shops with contents from creative and talented artists-some items are on the expensive side, of course, but wonderful to browse and see what's possible. Friendly folks, bot too hard to find parking, good walking, looking in windows, too. There are several restaurants that looked interesting. The Visitor Center staff is very helpful and friendly.

Good places to eat and drink. People are extremely friendly and helpful. The rail station has a interesting museum, small but worth stopping in to visit

Went in November when they were having an art festival. Most places had a sort of open house. Very interesting and fun to walk around.

All you can do in a half a day visit, nothing special I am afraid.. The Visitor Centre located on the old rail station are helpful.

Many restaurants in the area, and some very old and scenic buildings. Best seen on foot - parking can be had at the train station for a central location or most restaurants have adequate parking. Some neat shops along the way. Just a fun little walk into a bygone era.
