“Beautiful holiday lighting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Thanks to other reviewers on Trip Advisor we decided to view the holiday lighting in the downtown Square. It was well worth the visit. Such a festive evening when a local church was providing musical entertainment, and oh, how beautiful the lighting was! There were carriage rides and outdoor seating at some of the restaurants lining the square. Interesting shops were open with beautiful offerings. It really put one in a holiday mood!

“Christmas lights!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

The lights were fabulous -- hanging in the trees like a canopy and snaking up to the top of the palm trees. A block away, the justice center had lights that looked like Spanish moss. We loved walking around and seeing families enjoying the square. Across one street, they had an ice skating rink set up! Several good restaurants and a movie theater with cheap prices on first-run movies.
