Great history and fun to see presentation put on by the docent at the Rough Rider statute. And just across the street are local shops, eateries, and "Whiskey Row".

This is a busy place on weekends. Lots of craft shows, music, etc. There are many good restaurants and bars surrounding the square. There is a gazebo and a nice fountain that was recently restored.
