Hard to get a parking place. Clean and nice, old but well kept buildings. Had fun walking down town, lots of stores and restraunts. Not very many vendor's that was disappointing.

The winter is a great time to visit the Square, there is an ice rink that is well-kept and a warm changing area to rest and lace up. I always look forward to coming here to skate! The colour changing lights are a great effect...More

I love to watch my girlfriend skate here. She's a figure skater on a higher level. I will be watching her this winter. Very positive place to be around and excellent people to socialize with.
