“The Black swans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

Walking around the lakes and flower gardens was beautiful. All the little stores were so much fun to shop in and the people were very nice.

“Great Shows-”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

I like the gun shows particularly but Ihave been to some others as well. It is OK for a concert/show but being from Tampa there are better places to go for that entertainment. The gun shows here beat the fairgrounds every time!
They need to take a good look at their limited concessions. The lines are long and the selections and seating few. Have more drink vendors and seating - lots of older folks at these shows and it is hard for them to walk around so much and not have a place to park for a bit.

we went to an indoor football game and while we enjoyed the game the arena is old, dirty, and outdated.
