Great restaurants, Bootleggers is my favorite. Lots of cute stores and a wonderful hometown art store with beautiful items for sale by local artists.

Plenty of good restaurants and shops to browse through. Great architecture for picture taking. Good view of the county courthouse. I suggest using the parking lot just a short walk up the hill toward the courthouse, plenty of spaces. Great place to spend an afternoon.

Last time I was there (about a year ago) most shops were quiet by 5:00 pm on Saturday. Restaurants are about all that is going after that.
