Lots of fun walking around this town. Learning about the history and herstory, lol. We enjoyed poking in the local shops and skipped the cruise type shops.

What a well kept, fun town! There’s a wonderful variety of eateries and souvenir shops in this tourist town. Very clean and nicely done, where the buildings take you back to the gold mining days!

Walkable, doable and historical! Short jaunt from the cruise ships and a shuttle was also offered if one did not walk. First stop was the museum and then we simply went off to explore shops, bars, and ice cream shops interspersed with historic building. Plus...More
