Walk around if you must- maybe pose on a live horse- fee of course The main reason to come here is the twice daily cattle run- just like the old days. One each in the morning and after noon Expensive parking- none in the street

There is a lot of history in this area. Many shops, restaurants and bars. Try to make time for the cattle drive. It is very quick, but cool to see them up close.

Kids will like the cattle stampede and gun fight show. Well done by tour guides who were very friendly. Brick streets very hard to navigate with a wheelchair. Many shops and restaurants also hard to access with wheel chair. One side of the street is...More
