Loved the welded fences. Walking in and out of studios was great. Lots of walking as studios are not close to each other.

This is a fun area, best explored on foot, with lots of monuments, and art pieces. There are also lots of eclectic shops and restaurants. Wroth spending a few hours exploring.

We mostly spent time shopping (Mast General Store, Tops Shoes), but did walk the streets. I was impressed by the large numbers of very young people. Worth spending some time there!

We had one evening to explore and we parked and walked the historic district the entire evening. We fell in love with this little city and plan to come back to do much more exploring when we have more time.
