Cute artsy and gift shop area with center square and old church. Touristy but quaint. Note: Most of the shops close around 5 or 6 so not much going in evenings other than restaurants.

Neat place with different types of shops to appease customers wanting a variety of items to buy. Easy to get around with decent parking. Old Catholic Church from 1706 was neat to see.
