Charming old mining town in the foothills with some good restaurants and shops. I have eaten at Tio Pepe's Restaurant Mexican many time and the food never disappoints. Eating outside on the porch on a warm summer evening is the BEST.

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.
