A fun, laid back, interesting place to visit. Many unique restaurants, crafts, and shopping places. Multitude of artist, music, and antique festivals throughout the year.

At the end of the day we strolled down to the lakeside and found a seat in a couple of Adirondack chairs next to the lake.

Took a boat tour on lake which we really enjoyed. Thought of taking plane ride and we really should have.. Lake doesn't seem overrun with boaters - mostly pontoon boats with people going out for a day in the sun. Great sunsets - beautiful night skies.
