This downtown is so small, you can spend not more than 30-40 min, even if you go to every store. Stores are clean and nice, but again, there are too few of them. Parking is very limited and hard to get.

A nice little town to mess around in. The shops were great and restaurants wonderful. Everything centers on the river.

I saw many dogs there. I think some of the Inns also allow pets. Have fun with your pooch
