If one or two streets makes this area historic then I would suggest not getting lost on your way to the Garden of the God's. Even at night this place is rather depressing and a little frightening as it tends to be close to a...More

This is a must stop for any families to explore the various tourist shops while Mom and Dad enjoy the old west architecture. Plenty of good restaurants and the extraordinary La Baguette Bakery along with the Michael Garman Museum.

A wonderful and quaint little town - great for walking and seeing the little stores. Parking can be challenging, but once found, the Main Street is very walker-friendly.
