I hate to say anything about this town because it is a tourist destination, but I feel that I need to share some info that may help others. This town is not unlike the town of Tombstone in that it was once a thriving, old western town that has now been made solely as a tourist stop for those who are looking for a peek into the past. If you enjoy a slightly tacky tourist stop, you can enjoy this town. But be warned (we would not have driven out and up to it, had we known) that although it is widely known to be a vertical town that you must drive up to, it is nearly impossible to walk it if you have any physical problems.
The town consists of 3 parallel streets lined with businesses, so there is limited parking, no big lots, just a few dirt spots and parking on the street that fill up fast.
As for the reason that I would not recommend visiting this town for anyone with health issues, orthopedic issues, the elderly or even families with strollers is that the streets are tiny and are uneven and can cause problems. To get from one of the 3 streets to the next, you must navigate extremely steep stairs or walk a distance to get to a cross street that winds up to the next level then hike up almost as steep a street as the stairs.
Bottom line, there is only about a half hours worth of stuff to see, and way too strenuous and hazardous negotiating to do to make this town worth seeing.
Wish I could say it was worth the drive, but I can't.
