We had ridden our motorcycle for 5+ hours that morning so it was a great place to stretch our legs. There are plenty of places to eat, get a drink, or shop. Restrooms are a problem. Most of the small stores don't have a restroom for you to use and it was recommended not to use the public restrooms.

There is not much to see or do here. Small shops crowded sidewalks but they do have free parking. I wish we had skipped this stop.

We started on one side of the street and stopped to ask a local individual which was playing Pokemon Go. If he could recommend a good place to eat at. He said Bon Ton's Cafeteria. We sat in inside and had a very nice lady wait on us who was very helpful! I had the Philly Steak Sandwich w/fries, daughter... More

We walked up and down the length of the district, stopping in a few shops and an ice cream parlor. It is a shopping and dining area.

Having checked into town late on a Sunday afternoon, we headed here to scope out the area and get a bite. Many places were closed, but as many were open. There was a diverse mix of retail outlets - not same tourist stuff or Cracker Barrel merchandise. Everyone we spoke with was helpful and thoughtful in their recommendations of what... More

Of course go to it, but it is not very big and everything is pricey. Very touristy. Nice to walk around in.

The old charm, the warmth of the people, and the stores offering everything you could want. The artisans that have shops and wares are better than anywhere and reasonable.

This is a nice stop for an hour or two. There were many art galleries & nice clothing boutiques sprinkled among the tacky souvenir shops. There were also some great ice cream shops. We didn't stop at the 2 recreational marijuana shops in town...but I wish we would have!
