Super eating establishments, antique store, book store, ice cream shop. Whether shopping of 100 million year old fossils or the latest book by a local author, a really nicely restored set of buildings.

We go there often to eat or walk around. Our favorite restaurant there is fairly new and it has become one of our favorites. I highly recommend Clouds Brewing. Good food, great staff.
