At our hotel there was a walking tour of the historic district. We did not realize in such a small town there was that many historical homes. The houses and buildings are easy to find and marked. It's a great way to see what families called this area home. We walked the area over the 3 days we were in... More

This is our 5th year here. This place is relaxing, a lot to do, reasonable prices, each shop has different items. Don't visit here without seeing all of the historic district. Well worth the walk. Ask about the tree in the road. Great story.

Lots of places to shop, eat, drink, art galleries, and any other kind of store you could want to see. Even a distillery with tasting tours!! This was my first trip there and I felt safe walking everywhere by myself!! Loved the old home downtown feeling!! Watch out for the train, they are real tracks!!!

The downtown historic area is a collection of shops, eateries of all different types of food, some very casual, some more upscale The oldest saloon in Florida, The Palace is worth visiting even if you do not drink, A walk in the evening under the sparkling lights in the trees on Centre Street is very romantic. Come see for yourself.

We thoroughly enjoyed walking around the historic downtown. Charming buildings and shops align the street. There are many restaurants in this area to choose from including the fudge/icecream shop! Its a great atmosphere.

This is a highlight of our trip, beach during the day and walk the historic district at night. So many unique little shops, also antiques, and the waterfront where you can take a boat ride.

This historic downtown was beautiful. So many cute shops and nice restaurants. It's dog friendly which is a plus for a lot of folks who travel with pets. Ice cream, fudge, burgers, pizza, bbq you name it.
