The Old Town is a pleasant place to stroll. It is not a place where I would spend a lot of time, other than to eat. There is not much to do and most of the restored buildings are shops and restaurants. But it is...More

Not far around 200 yards . Towards the back buy the river walk straight to the end . There's usually a balloon clown for the kids 👍🏽
We are going to stay at La Quinta Inn. I'm wondering if we will be able to walk down to the town.
