Really enjoyed the president statues, and the splash pad area. A very walkable city, with unique shops. Watch out for parking enforcement. If you stay more than 3 hours, make sure you move your car.

The downtown area has lots of little unique stores and looking at the Presidents is fun for the kids. While searching them out, make a stop at Main Street Square.

We filmed all the available President statues. The detail on each is super. Many restaurants downtown. Plenty of people so we felt safe. Free parking.

A lot of unique shops and some great statues. We stopped into the city a couple times in the evenings, so a lot of things were closed, I would have loved to have spent a day just exploring the downtown
