Very nice visitor center with volunteer staff and a nice little gift shop. Worth a stop for an overview of the town, famous locally for its murals (pick up a guide while you are there).

This is sort of an average Visitor Center, but it is a useful stop to get a map and ask questions. the inside exhibits were modest. There is a short nature trail, so you can learn about some of the plants.
