“Days gone By!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Fabulous looking how the days were passed away working in the livery stables and the old shop stores.You can see how shoes were moulded to be fitted to the horses and how locals are dressed.Its only a small wooden town but gives a good thought as to how they lived back then!

“Fun specialty shops”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Great place to visit, wander and dine after visiting the Aquarium which is right next door. Lots of specialty shops, unique gift items and areas to sit and relax or people watch!

“Fun place to visit”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Spent time in the village window shopping because prices were too high to shop. Enjoyed coffee at the Beanery. Utterly delicious! Had a fabulous dinner at the Daniel packer Inn.
