If you enjoy nuts, don't miss this little joint. They have tons of different varieties of nuts. Great snack stop!

I remember my Grandpa taking me here as a tot. It is a small shop but they have wonderful candies and nuts. If you are going downtown this is a must stop.

The RUDE shopkeeper insists that you can't take photos of this place. This extremely quaint shop is worth visiting even though the RUDE shopkeeper wants to keep this place secret to the outside world. Tourists tend to clog this shop and make the local lawmakers...More
