We love to visit this town. Beautiful shops and friendly people everywhere you go. Shopping is great for gifts and hard to find items. Great variety of items to choose from.

We were there on Christmas Eve. The lights along the river front were beautiful. Of the stores that were still open, the employees were very personable and the prices were quite reasonable for such specialty stores.
