  • We are so pleased we chose to come to their area rather than another big town. Gorgeous old houses, wonderful historic sites, good food. We just loved it!. Make the effort to come.

  • Just walking around this bizarre town is rewarding enough. The grassy domes are a little monotonous but their historic reasons for being there make up for it.
