“Easy to walk about”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

From our hotel we were able to walk to interesting shops; many with a Western flavor. There is no end of pubs, inns, cafes, etc. Going down another street, were many antique stores to visit.

“Western Heritage Days”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We really enjoyed the car show at the Western Heritage Days displayed in the downtown historic area. There were so many and with the streets closed off we could walk around to see them all. We walked the area on Friday night and Saturday during the day. Quaint shops and fun places to eat.

“A Top Stop On Any Travelers Schedule”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Just go to this historic square, the whole thing speaks for itself. Kind of busy all the time with festivals, tent sales, arts and crafts, etc.

“Enjoy the old time band concerts on the Courthouse Square, the shopping, restaurants and attractions.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We always enjoy the spice shop on the North side of the Courthouse Square. Plus, the people watching can't be beat.
